'Hot Felon' Released From Prison, Ready To Start Modeling Career

Jeremy Meeks' first modeling headshot is just as hot as the mugshot that made him an Internet star two years ago.

The piercing blue eyes and razor-sharp cheekbones remain, but the former felon has swapped his prison clothes for a Golden State Warriors cap.

Meeks, 32, who became known across America as "The Hot Mugshot Guy," became famous in June of 2014 after he was arrested on gun and gang-related charges. When his mugshot was posted on the Stockton, California, police department's website, women (and men) swooned, and Meeks became an overnight global obsession.
