Prisoner Whose Hot Mugshot Went Viral Freed From Jail
We’re pretty sure you remember “Felon Bae” aka Jeremy Meeks, the blue-eyed convict who captured hearts across the world when his Stockton Police Department mugshot went viral after he was arrested in June 2014 for gun possession.
Meeks was sentenced to 27 months behind bars in July 2015 and is now a free man with even more fame on the horizon. Even before entering the Mendota Federal Correctional Institution where he served his time, Meeks already enlisted the services of a talent agency.
His agent Jim Jordan, of White Cross Management, confirmed his freedom to BuzzFeed.
After spending the last year in the medium-security Mendota Federal Correctional Institution, the husband and father of three is now considering his options, Jordan said.
“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.”
As for Meeks’ time in prison, Jordan said it went relatively well. “The other prisoners were real nice to him,” he said.
We bet they were… Probably jockeying for spots in his entourage once they hit the free world.
