There's nothing meek about Jeremy. Yes, he has a prison record but in these pictures it's clear he's got the pecs, arms and bad boy look that could propel him into a whole new (legal) moneymaking opportunity — as a model.

He's also got a manager in L.A., so he's well on his way. For those keeping track, his Facebook page includes his stats: 32-years-old, 6 feet 1 and 170 pounds.

For those who may not remember, Meeks was arrested in 2014 during a gun sweep in California, and his mug shot on the Stockton Police Department's Facebook page went on to earn over 101,000 likes.

Meeks was released from prison this March and posted a picture with his manager. Then, on Tuesday he added a few new pictures — these not taken by the Stockton police — to get everyone excited, including basketball fans.

And if you actually wanted further proof that, convict or not, he's an old softy — it looks like Meeks dotes on his adorable kids:

Loved seeing my sons when they came to visit me the other day ❤️

Good luck, Mr. Meeks! As one of your commenters noted, everybody deserves a second chance. Just stay beautiful and nobody should get hurt.
