Remember when the internet went gaga over Jeremy Meeks, when his mug-shot was circling the web last summer? Well, sadly, everyone’s le boo is about to be behind bars for a few years.
That mug-shot was for a reason, though his good looks had everyone talking about modeling contracts–and booty calls. The 30-year-old was arrested in Stockton, Calif. on June 18 during a gang sweep, and was hit with weapon charges. And while Meeks had the ultimate come-up in terms of popularity behind bars, including getting offered multiple contracts from agents in Hollywood, he hasn’t been so lucky in the legal realm.
Meeks was just sentenced to 27 months in federal prison for being a felon in possession of a weapon–specifically, a .45 caliber pistol. And those two-plus years actually make for a great sentence compared to the 10 years he could have received since he served time in 2002 for grand theft. Meeks will also have to go through 500 hours of substance abuse treatment.
Despite all this, Meeks might be happy to know that all the attention he got for his looks seemed to open some kind of broke down door for other individuals arrested, who just so happen to look good. Remember Sean Kory?
Anywho, Meeks is definitely sexy. But prison? Not so much…
