Jeremy Meeks The \'Hot Felon\' Is Out Of Prison

Jeremy Meeks The 'Hot Felon' Is Out Of Prison

The Debrief: Cue a deluge of advertising campaigns and film roles.

2014 was a big big year. Not least because a mugshot of a convicted felon went viral for the very simple fact that he's an absolutely fucking babe.

Jeremy Meeks, the 'hot felon’, was sentenced to two years in federal prison in February 2015 for a weapons violation and he's previously spent time inside for grand theft auto from a person and is said to have ‘documented links’ with gangs.

Now, according to his Instagram account (he’s also verified, wtf) he’s done his time and has been released from prison.

Pictured is Jim Jordan, his manager and agent. Speaking to Newsbeat last year, Jordan said ‘When I first saw Jeremy's picture, the first thing that came to my mind was I needed to help this guy. After speaking with his wife and meeting his family, I got a real sense of who Jeremy was as a husband and father, not to mention how beautiful he is inside and out.’ So the first thing he saw definitely wasn’t dollar signs. Absolutely not.

In a statement on Wednesday, Jordan said 'We have a lot in store regarding Jeremy’s new career. There are a multitude of offers on the table. Jeremy is humbled and grateful and overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers for him and his family.' His girlfriend wasn't too happy about all the attention he received at the time, so it remains to be seen how she deals with, what seems to be, his imminent fame.

Side note: who the hell has been keeping his Instagram up to date since he's been inside?
