Hot Mugshot Guy Earns $30K Modeling Contract, Will Wear Tom Ford To Court

TMZ reports that Jeremy Meeks, the beloved criminal whose popularity shot up thanks to his "bad boy" good looks, now officially has a modeling contract.

The felon has been signed by Blaze Modelz, an LA-based agency, for a $30,000 contract. GR Media's Gina Rodriguez, former porn star who also represents a circus of useless "celebrities" including Octomom, Tan Mom, Farrah Abraham and V. Stiviano, will be his new agent.

According to Fox News, Rodriguez has spoken with three modeling agencies and four production companies about signing Meeks for contracts and even potential reality shows.

Los Angeles criminal defense attorney Darren Kavinoky says this is a "clear sign of the impending apocalypse."

According to Rodriguez,

A lot of TV shows that want to cover [him], a lot of news shows. It’s just been crazy, the type of media attention that he’s gotten.

Besides Rodriguez, Jim Jordan, who owns White Cross Management, is also very interested in signing Meeks. It's been "overwhelming" for the Meeks family, who is mainly focused on getting him out of jail right now.

Blaze told TMZ that Meeks could make $15,000-$30,000 per month modeling -- if he gets out of jail, that is. His bail has been set at $1.1 million.

Rodriguez told Fox 411,

"I'm not exactly sure why [the bail] is so much money. That's what we're trying to figure now. We're trying to secure him some of these deals so that when he gets out, it can change his life, literally."

Meeks' lawyer, Tai Bogan, said it's important that Meeks look as "good as possible" before the jury on his court date.

According to Daily Mail, Bogan argued that because his picture was posted millions of times around the Internet, "it was prejudicial against a fair trial for him to be 'in handcuffs and prison garb'." Bogan is employing designers to dress Meeks for his case.

Rodriguez said,

The modeling management we are working with has a stylist who was going to dress Jeremy in a Tom Ford suit.

By law, Meeks will be able to wear civilian clothes for his trial.
