Jeremy Meeks, the Californian man whose sexy mug shot became a sensation among Web users admiring his male-model good looks, has been sentenced to 27 months in prison on an illegal possession of gun charge.

Meeks, 30, dubbed as “the hot convict” was arrested last June in a gang crackdown in Stockton, California, and pleaded guilty in November to one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to U.S. Attorney spokeswoman Mary Wenger.

U.S. District Judge Troy Nunley in Sacramento sentenced Meeks on Thursday to 27 months in prison and ordered him to participate in a 500 hours substance abuse treatment program in prison, said Wenger.

Meeks became an Internet sensation after the Stockton police posted his mugshot on the department’s Facebook page, triggering an avalanche of “likes” for his chiseled cheekbones, hint of stubble and teardrop tattoo under one of his light blue eyes.

 Meeks' family hired Gina Rodriguez, a former porn star turned talent manager, to explore modeling deals and reality shows for him, CNN reported at the time. It was not known if she was still working with him.

However, according to reports Meeks was has not sign any contract yet

In a jail house interview, Meeks said he used to be a gang member but is not anymore, and that he did not know about his Internet popularity until a reporter told him.

"I appreciate that (popularity) but I just really want them to know that this is really not me, I'm not some kingpin," Meeks  he said.
