STOCKTON, Calif. — The “hot felon” who made headlines because of his swoon-worthy mug shot was released from prison Wednesday.

In 2014, Jeremy Meeks of Stockton, Calif., was sentenced to 27 months in prison for weapons charges.

His mug shot went viral after the police department posted the photo to their Facebook page.

The husband and father of three, who signed a modeling contract with White Cross Management while in prison, is now considering his career options.

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

Although his modeling  and acting plans are unclear, Meeks said on Instagram that he is just happy to be back with his family.
