LOS ANGELES, Calif. (March 10, 2016) – His booking photo made women swoon when he was arrested in 2014.

Now Jeremy Meeks, the so-called “hot felon,” has been released from federal prison and is now entertaining job offers, according to his manager, Jim Jordan.

“We have a lot in store regarding Jeremy’s new career. There are a multitude of offers on the table,” Jordan told the Los Angeles Times. “Jeremy is humbled and grateful and overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers for him and his family.”

Meeks was sentenced in February 2015 for a weapons violation. He served more than a year of that sentence and will spend some time at a transitional facility before he goes home for good.

According to KTLA, Meeks’ wife and three children greeted him Tuesday morning during his release. Meeks took to Instagram to thank his family for their support.

“I want to thank my family and everybody for all your love, support and prayers,” he wrote. “I’m overwhelmed and grateful for what lies ahead. I’m ready.”
