Jeremy Meeks, dubbed the "hot felon," has been released from prison, and is now staying in a residential re-entry program in Sacramento. Meeks first made news when his mugshot appeared online.

Already scoring an agent, Jeremy Meeks received offers to model for various outlets while he was incarcerated at Federal Correctional Institution in Mendota, California.

“Looking forward to reuniting with my family,” Meeks shared on Instagram on March 2. “Counting down the days. #6days #spreadtheword.”

“We’re putting everything in place,” his agent, Jim Jordan says. “We’re in talks with a lot of different agencies. There’s movies on the table. We have a lot of different things happening.”

Jeremy Meeks was sentenced to 27 months in prison on weapons charges. The married dad of three said the other prisoners were very nice to him while he was behind bars.

So excited to see @jmeeksofficialjr in two weeks! #almosthome

It will be interesting to see where Jeremy Meeks' likeness shows up next. Will big names hire the ex-con to tout their wares? Or will he likely do small-time gigs instead?

Will the "hot felon's" prison past have any negative consequences as he begins his career as a model and/or actor?
