It didn't take long for "Hot Mugshot Guy" Jeremy Meeks to get back in front of the camera. Meeks has officially started his modeling career after signing to the Los Angeles-based agency White Cross Management and has his first headshot to prove it. The "Hot Felon" shared the photo on Instagram, just three months after being released from prison.
Meeks shows off his chiseled jawline and piercing blue eyes, much like in his mugshot that made him a viral sensation in 2014 after the Stockton Police Department uploaded the photo to their official Facebook page. The picture gained the attention of thirsty women everywhere, who swarmed by the thousands to leave comments on the page like "he’s too fine to be a criminal" and "marry me."
Meeks had been sentenced to two years in prison for being a felon in possession of a firearm and was being held on a $900,000 bail. It was reported and later denied that he had signed a modeling contract with Blaze Models shortly after the photo went viral. But, his manager Jim Jordan apparently did sign Meeks to White Cross last year while he was still behind bars.
Meeks shared a photo with Jordan shortly after his release where he thanked those who supported him. "I want to thank my family and everybody for all your love, support and prayers," he wrote in the caption. "I'm overwhelmed and grateful for what lies ahead. I'm ready @jimjordanphotography and @whitecrossmanagement "
The agency has said that it is also working to get Meeks his own reality TV series.
