STOCKTON, Calif. – “Hot convict” Jeremy Meeks has apparently landed a modeling contract behind bars.

Meeks, who is being held on $1 million bond after his arrest on seven felony charges including “street terrorism,” scored a modeling contract with Blaze Modelz, the Huffington Post reported.

Meeks, 30, shot to fame last month when his mugshot, posted on Facebook by police, was shared thousands of times. The Los Angeles Times reported Meeks is a documented member of the Northside Gangster Crips.
