They say that crime doesn’t pay, but these days that’s not strictly true, as yet another “hot felon” shoots to fame. Criminal behavior has never looked so good…

In 2014, Jeremy Meeks was arrested during a gang sweep in California. Then 30-years-old, he was convicted on charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm and grand theft and sent to prison for 27 months. During his arrest process the police department uploaded his mugshot to their Facebook page. However, rather than become a pitiful example to other would-be criminals, Meeks became a household name after the snapshot went viral.

Dubbed “hot felon”, Meeks had hearts racing across the globe, prompting him to be signed to a modelling contract whilst still incarcerated. Upon his release in 2016, he was featured in magazine spreads internationally with Vogue calling him a “buff bad boy”.

The following year he made his catwalk debut at New York Fashion Week and was then quickly seen strutting his stuff at Milan Fashion Week. However, more notable than his fashion feats is his blossoming romance with Topshop heiress, Chloe Green, whom he started dating this summer despite being married with children.

Meeks’ rags to riches lifestyle has inspired many to scour police department Facebook pages in pursuit of the latest talent. They didn’t have to wait long, as this week a new “hot felon” was found…
