Remember the felon who became so popular from his good looks that people forgot his criminal record? His name is Jeremy Meeks and he has now launched his modeling career by walking in designer Philipp Plein’s runway show at New York Fashion Week.
Meeks was convicted back in 2014 for possession of a .45 caliber semiautomatic pistol. Before going behind bars, Meeks scored a modeling contract with White Cross Management talent agency. Prior to his arrest in 2014, Meeks served a nine year sentence for a grand theft auto felony. He has since seemed to turn his life around and pursue his modeling career; with his good looks, booking gigs shouldn’t be too difficult.
