(CNN) - The "hot convict" has apparently landed a modeling contract, and he's not even out of jail yet.

Jeremy Meeks is currently being held on a $1 million bond after his arrest on seven felony charges including "street terrorism."

The Huffington Post reports that Meeks has scored a modeling contract with Blaze Modelz.

The 30-year-old inmate shot to fame last month when his mug shot was posted on Facebook.

The Los Angeles Times reports Meeks is a documented member of the Northside Gangster Crips.
