The Hot Mugshot Guy Scored A Modeling Contract While Still Behind Bars

Remember Jeremy Meeks? The hot convict with the chiseled cheekbones and piercing blue eyes?

It's okay if you don't because you'll be seeing a lot more of the gorgeous inmate in the near future; he recently signed on with a modeling agency -- while in prison. 

Meeks, who has been locked up for felony possession of a firearm, first gained attention last year when his mugshot -- posted to the Stockton Police Department's Facebook page -- went viral.

He still has a bit of time left on his 27-month sentence, but modeling agency White Cross Management has already scooped him up for when he gets out.

Meeks told ABC in an interview,

I never though that everyone in the world would recognize me for my looks, so I feel very blessed and thankful.

The 30-year-old hopes his modeling career will allow him to “really change” his life.

We already know Meeks looks delicious as a high-fashion model, and we're so glad he'll be trading handcuffs for haute couture soon.
