Gun Felon and “Hot convict” Jeremy Meeks Released from Prison

“30-year-old [Jeremy] Meeks was arrested during a gang sweep June 18 for gun possession in Stockton, Calif.,” nypost.com reported back in February 2015. “A felon after serving time in 2002 for grand theft, Meeks had a loaded .45 caliber pistol on him during his latest run-in, a federal crime that could have landed him in prison for up to 10 years.” But didn’t. The so-called “Hot Convict” — whose mug shot melted hearts, inspired modeling offers and may land him a reality TV show — served 27 months. Huh. And now, he’s out . . .

“The married father of three is starting to put the pieces of his modeling career together,” Meeks’ agent Jim Jordan told the Daily News last Wednesday. “We have a lot in store regarding Jeremy’s new career. There are a multitude of offers on the table,” Jordan said. “Jeremy is humbled and grateful and overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers for him and his family.” Good luck with his rehab. Meanwhile, should the felonious heartthrob get his gun rights back?
