Crime definitely pays: Sexy felon gets agent and modeling contract

I wasn’t surprised when glam-bam terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev showed up on the cover of Rolling Stone to the delight of pubescent girls everywhere.

So is it really any shock that “sexy felon” Jeremy Meeks now has an agent and, according to TMZ, a $30,000 modeling contract? Oh yes, my friends.

In addition to his ELEVEN felony counts, history of convictions and $1 million bail, 30-year-old Meeks also has over 100,000 Facebook “likes” for his mugshot on the Stockton Police Department’s Facebook page and a “GoFundMe” page started by his mother to raise money for his defense.

According to The Independent, Meeks now also has an agent in the shape of former porn star Gina Rodriguez who counts among her clients such stellar talents as Donald Sterling’s former mistress, V. Stiviano.

However, Los Angeles criminal defense attorney Darren Kavinoky is not quite as optimistic about a bright showbiz future for Meeks. He told Fox411: “It’s totally insane and it speaks poorly of where we are. We are so enamoured with appearance and attractiveness that we are willing to totally disregard that we’re talking [about] somebody who is a criminal, someone who has a long rap sheet and a history of convictions.

“His current allegations involve weapons possession by somebody who society has deemed should not possess guns. If the allegations against him are true, he appears to be a very, very bad boy.”

Isn’t it interesting how guns (and bombs) in the hands of someone attractive are conveniently overlooked by our shallow, clueless, morally-bankrupt culture? What a shame for James Holmes and Jared Loughner that they came up short in the looks department. No one is hoping for their release. No one is trying to make up excuses for their criminal (and deranged behavior).

Bummer for these guys. Too ugly for sympathy.

But if you’re hot, with sexy tattoos or tousled hair, you can get away with almost anything. It is a terrible indictment of how far our culture has declined that we’re not just celebrating immorality (that’s SO Miley Cyrus) but now violence, destruction and death.

God help us.

This is a sick and twisted generation we are raising. No God, no morals, and no parents. Evil looks good to those who are lost. God help us.

It always works that way in our country. Reward the creeps, and penalize the honest. I’m sure Bergdahl will be worshipped by oddballs. Some women get turned on by “bad boys”, his looks are more important to some, but he’ll get rich and many marriage proposals from some pathetic women. I’m lumping the felon and traitor into the same bag.

I suppose both men and women are attracted by physical beauty, but it is also wise to look at other attributes, like character and kindness.

I don’t think this guy will be getting out in 6 months.

isn’t he out now? when did he do the calvin ad? and those other fashion shoots. the crowds that models run with can be pretty wild. just what we need is a guy who already has “issues” mingling with elite coke-heads. i don’t see someone, who despite his criminal record. is being courted for being beautiful, (and he is beautiful,) trying too hard to rehabilitate himself. i wonder how long it will take before he ends up back in the prison.

I don’t think it is that people overlook he is a criminal, I believe we have become so numb to crime because it is all around us. I think we have come to expect drugs, murder, robbery and so on as just how it is now. Sad but true. People would rather see him as a good looking guy then deal with his crime.

Violent crime is at a 25 year low.

Tell that to anybody who has been shot or mugged recently.

Hopefully he’ll still be ‘sexy’ in prison. 😉

Beauty is only skin deep. It is the inner man that really counts. Is it attractive or ugly as sin?

Great West. Sexy thieves are bad, but where’s the outrage over sexy female child offenders????

Yes, I mean after the 11th felony, it’s time to start thinking about rehabilitation. And West doesn’t do “black empowerment” speeches because that is f*cking racist (like you). He does American empowerment speeches.

Not saying what he did was right, but he is absolutely gorgeous!!! Js 😉

Well to Mr. West and all the haters. The American Dream is not your personal property, free-market success is there for everyone with something marketeable. Not just the people you deem acceptable. One thing you can do, if he models for Hanes buy Fruit of the Loom.

Who are the “haters?” Oh, I guess anyone who disagrees with you, eh?

Anyone having a problem with this guy getting a “JOB”. And 30K is not that much money. It’s about 14 an hour for a year of work.

Way to completely miss the point. It’s a sad commentary on society that looks trump things like heinous criminality. I bet if he was a white dude you wouldn’t have anything good to say about it though.

Rafael X
Guest

If it was a white dude, I would say the same thing. The only thing sad is the author complaining about a totally shallow industry hiring someone for completely shallow reasons. Supply and demand homie, laws of the market. Don’t hate the player, hate the game.

Maybe all of you are looking at the surface. What got him out of jail. But what if this will end up turning I’m his bad criminal habits around. Most of the time I’m conservative on the politics scal but why not instead of judging the future and expecting the worse. We just let what has happened, happen. In hopes that he becomes a better person. You know I tend to pay for the person behind me when I go to starbucks. Without knowing there past record or even having a conversation. I do it just because. That person gets… Read more »

I agree let’s see how he does. If the guy does it again Mr. Lawmen already knows him.

The white guy wouldn’t have even made headlines. Its because he is a gangster, and americans are simply sheep minded morons.

Unfair as it is that hot sexy tousled look has always worked for me.

I hope he can turn his life around now, but I did see a different picture of him and he looked entirely different.

Bryan Fullerton

Agree with you here 100%

LOL! Imagine using a mug shot to be “discovered” by a modeling agent! I
hope that doesn’t catch on. Maybe he WILL turn his life around, but
then will this become the new thing for “sexy criminals”? “Let’s commit
some crimes & get our pictures posted so WE can be discovered!”
:/ Dang! Maybe I should’ve gotten arrested for something when I was
younger! I might be rich by now. Ha ha!!

He’s not even attractive…..just your everyday, rub-of-the-mill thug. Nice to know his mother is finally getting involved in his life, though. Too bad she wasn’t there when it would actually have made a difference.

Maybe if the Justice system is done right. He can be a Model for Bubba in Prison
He most likely would look good in a TOO TOO

People, the idiot is a known gang banger. You think he will get out of prison and quit the gang life to become a failed model? Some of the comments, like that on FB was all about, “oh white man want ta bring the black man down” jesus….

To borrow a line from a great movie — “He’s sure got a pretty mouth!”

Where are Pelosi and Reid and all the other anti 2nd Amendment liberals when an opportunity to address the gun issue by keeping them out of the hands of someone truely disqualified to have possession of a firearm…no they’d rather take on the compliant law abiding owners of firearms! Proof of these moronic political idiots’ courage…or need I say lack of courage?

local law enforcement could clean up the gang problem real easy. You just play as hard as the bangers do . They can’t do that though because it would end the excuse for more military equipment. i agree they need to conduct their SWAT raids on more deserving people and leave the working tax payers alone
