Anyone hoping that Jeremy Meeks will be out of lockdown anytime soon will have to put those thoughts to rest.
According to MTV, the man known as the “Hot Felon” will remain in custody for a good bit. Lauren Horwood, a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, tells the network’s website that Meeks pled guilty to one count of illegal firearm possession on November 6.As a result, Meeks will remain at the Sacramento County Jail in Sacramento until he’s sentenced on January 22.
Meeks’ current circumstance came after he appeared in court July 8th and was told his “felon in possession of a firearm” charge would be turned over to federal prosecutors. From there, he was temporarily moved to the Sacramento County Jail, where he is currently located.
Meeks drew a lot of attention and headlines last year after the Stockton, California police department posted his mugshot in June. The picture resulted in Meeks becoming an online sensation as rumors surfaced of him getting a modeling contract with Blaze Models, despite being in custody.
To capitalize off the momentum, Meeks got in touch with Gina Rodriguez, a former porn star turned self-proclaimed “D-List” manager who reps Michael Lohan. Past clients included Octomom, Tan Mom and Tila Tequila.
