Jeremy Meeks has officially left his criminal past behind him to begin his new path of wealth and privilege as he scored an early exit from his supervised release.
The hot felon’s famed lawyer, Harland Braun, filed documents in his federal criminal case a few months ago requesting that his supervised release be reduced from the original three years, down to two.
Back in 2015, Meeks was sentenced to 27 months in prison on charges of a felon in possession of a firearm, and grand theft. His sentence was to be followed by 36 months of supervised release.
Unfortunately, the probation was really effecting his life with fiancée and baby mama Chloe Green. Being engaged to an heiress requires frequent travel to foreign countries, and Meeks had to get approval from his P.O. each time. His criminal status also caused him trouble staying in Monaco, where Green usually lives for extended periods of time.
According to a declaration from the model himself, Meeks wrote, “As of June 2018, I will have completed 24 hours months of my supervised release without any violation,” adding “I pled guilty to a charge of a felon in possession of a gun because I possessed a gun and had a prior state prison felony conviction. I appreciate the leniency shown to me by Judge Nunley and the startling good fortune that my booking photograph went ‘viral’ establishing for me a career as a male model.”
Meeks believes he has taken advantage of his “good fortune,” and used it to “reform my character to make a law-abiding life for myself and my family.”
He wrote about his personal life and how he is “happily engaged to Chloe Green, and we plan to be married shortly.” He also admitted that he’s well aware his modeling career won’t last forever and wants to try and make as much money while he can. He also said that Green’s family has offered to help him learn a job in their billionaire father Sir Philip’s business once his good looks aren’t earning checks anymore.
However, the 34-year-old said all of this would be made much more difficult if he was still hindered by another year of supervised release.
In response to Meeks, the prosecutors in his case did not disagree with his amazing turnaround. In fact, they thought it was nothing short of amazing.
According to the document, prosecutors noted, “The defendant has somewhat inexplicably fashioned an apparently legitimate livelihood out of modeling, mostly in Europe.” They explained that normally such a request isn’t granted, but they agreed with Meeks that the terms were preventing his ability to lead a better life.
The court also did not disagree with Meeks and happily granted his early termination from supervised release, almost an entire year early! His criminal case is now closed.
It also appears it was all done in record time, allowing Meeks to make it to Monaco for the birth of his son, Jayden Meeks-Green.
