Jeremy Meeks, the criminal whose dreamy mugshot made headlines around the world last week, could return to a successful modelling career when he is released from prison.
Meeks, a career criminal who was recently charged with gang related offences, is allegedly being eyed off by modelling agencies and stands to make up to $30,000 a month, according to a Daily Mail report.
The 30-year-old’s mugshot went viral on Facebook last week, receiving almost 100,000 Likes, and became the object of lust around the world.

Modelling agency Blaze Modelz told TMZ that ‘gangster models’ are currently very popular, and that the criminal could command a massive salary working for high end fashion houses like Versace and Armani.
According to the Daily Mail report, Meeks has a long criminal record, including resisting arrest and faking his identity, and has previously served time for grand theft.
It is unlikely that the father of one will be released anytime soon however, as he is currently being held on a $900,000 bail.
