Jeremy Meeks (pictured), the “hottie thug” who became an internet sensation overnight when his mugshot was posted on Facebook by the Stockton, California police last year, was given a 27-month prison sentence for gun possession by a judge, who apparently was not turned on by his good looks, according to CBS Sacramento.
The 30-year-old blue-eyed and extremely photogenic law-breaker was given the name “hottie thug,” after he was arrested during a gang sweep on June 18 for gun possession. The federal crime could have put him behind bars for at least ten years.
After Meeks’ mugshot went lovefest viral, his chiseled good looks and even emotion-stirring teardrop tattoo near his left eye made women —and a few men—go ga-ga. With model and film star looks, Meeks began receiving offers and even reportedly signed lucrative modeling contracts with payoffs that range from $30,000 to a cool $100,000 a month.
For now, “Mugshot McDreamy” will just have to do his time and look GQ fabu in his prison gear. The judge also mandated that Meeks complete a 500-hour Bureau of Prisons Substance Abuse Treatment Program.
