‘Sexy Mugshot Guy’ Can No Longer Be Photographed in Court
Sorry ladies: The media will no longer have any fresh, sexy photos of Jeremy Meeks thanks to prosecutors dropping state charges against him. Instead, he will be tried in federal court on one count of firearm possession — and consequently cannot be photographed or videotaped in court.
Though Meeks, the convict who blew up Facebook with his blue steel, was arraigned on nearly a dozen state charges, all of which were dropped, he still faces severe penalties: KXTV reports that he could spend up to 10 years in prison, and/or a $250,000 fine.
“He would have been just another inmate had it not been for his mug shot which generated national buzz, generally among women admiring his looks,” they added.
But now he will be worthless to the media (worthless!), so, welp, there goes any hope he has for a Chicago-style defense.
