Free as a bird! Jeremy Meeks, who became the viral sensation known as ‘hot felon’ after pictures of his mugshot surfaced online in 2014, has been released from prison, Buzzfeed confirms. The seriously attractive convict had been sentenced to 27 months in jail on weapon charges.
According to NBC News, Meeks is currently in a residual reentry program in Sacramento and is due for release July 7.
As previously reported by Us Weekly, the good-looking 32-year-old bad boy was in talks with modeling agents while behind bars at Federal Correctional Institution in Mendota, California.
His agent, Jim Jordan of White Cross Management, confirmed to BuzzFeed on Wednesday, March 9, that the convict is now a free man and is considering his options when it comes to how he might use his chiseled features to earn money.
“We’re putting everything in place,” Jordan told BuzzFeed. “We’re in talks with a lot of different agencies. There’s movies on the table. We have a lot of different things happening.”
Prison was bearable for Meeks, who is married and the dad of three. “The other prisoners were real nice to him,” the agent told BuzzFeed.
“Looking forward to reuniting with my family,” Meeks shared on Instagram on March 2. “Counting down the days. #6days #spreadtheword.”
