Never too late for a second chance!
Jeremy Meeks (33) made his New York Fashion Week debut this week! He was released from prison about a year ago.
He was arrested in 2014, and convicted of possessing an illegal firearm in 2015. Although he was sentenced to spend 27 months in prison, he was granted early release after serving about 12 months. Upon his release, he promptly signed to White Cross Management as a model.
At the time, his agent, Jim Jordan, told the media that he had "huge plans" for Meeks. "The world responds to beautiful things," he added. "Jeremy is a beautiful thing. His striking looks [are] the first thing we noticed. His appeal got the attention of the world."
