America's hottest felon Jeremy Meeks won’t let house arrest stop him from flashing his abs for his swooning fans.
Meeks’ criminally good looks – including piercing blue eyes, razor-sharp cheekbones and chiseled jaw - earned him the moniker after his mugshot was posted on the Stockton Police Department’s Facebook page in 2014.
Now that he is out of prison, the California native is looking forward to pursuing a career as a model and actor.
Despite being under house arrest until July 7, Meeks is practising his sultry stares for the camera and shared the results on his Twitter page.

America's hottest felon Jeremy Meeks won’t let house arrest stop him from flashing his abs for his swooning fans. He posted this picture on Wednesday with the caption: 'Count down #housearrest'
One picture shows Meeks in just a pair of jeans and flaunting the numerous tattoos on his torso and arms while washing his hands, captioned: ‘Count down #housearrest #bayarea.’
Minutes later, Meeks shared another sultry shot, staring intently into the camera with his hands at the wheel of a car.
‘End of my driveway is as far as I can go,’ he commented alongside the picture.

On Monday, Meeks, 30, posted another sultry snap on his social media – a selfie sporting a Golden State Warriors cap - with the caption '#warriors #dubnation #hometeam' where it has already garnered over 11,000 'likes'.
The ex-convict showed his support for the Californian team just ahead of the NBA Finals' game five when the Golden State Warriors faced the Cleveland Cavaliers.
But having the felon on their side didn't seem to help as the team were defeated 112-97 in Oakland.
Meeks also treated his fans to this picture, gazing intently into the camera, adding that the end of his driveway is as far as he is currently allowed to go
In February last year, Meeks, a forklift operator, was handed a 27-month jail term after being charged with illegally possessing firearms and ammo, carrying a loaded firearm in public and criminal street gang activity - but he secured early release from the Nevada correctional center where he was being held.
From the small town of Stockton in northern California prior to his arrest, Meeks was brought up in a poor household and began his life of crime after becoming involved with the Northern Crips – a branch of the notorious Los Angeles gang.
He married a local nurse named Melissa, who had two children, at 24 and went on to have a son, now five, with his wife.
When he was arrested in June 2014 as part of a crackdown on gangs by the Stockton police department, he was charged with five weapons offenses and two counts relating to gang membership.

A police spokesman once called him 'one of the most violent criminals in the area'.
However, that did not stopped the felon from being inundates with modelling offers after his mugshot went viral.
He was signed by White Cross Management last year.
His agent Jim Jordan revealed Meeks had received offers from all over the world – among them a smattering of invitations from unnamed royals to visit them at their palace homes.
But it was not until March 8, when he was released from prison to a half-way house that Jordan saw Meeks in all his glory.
'I was like, ‘Damn,this guy isn’t just good-looking',' he told New York magazine. 'He has a ten-pack. Lean, he’s six-foot-one - the perfect height - fits the clothes perfect, super-white teeth.'
Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Online recently, he also said that the 'humble' Meeks is nothing like the hard man image conveyed by his life of crime and gang tattoos, and is instead a 'soft-spoken family man' who has been left totally overwhelmed by all the attention.
'We've had contact with a lot of big brands,' Jordan added. 'We've had contact from all the major, major brands.
In February 2015 Meeks was handed a 27-month jail term after being charged with multiple felonies
'I can't specify the names of them right now but the world will see very, very shortly what's about to happen.
'We have major, major fashion brands, designers on the table. We have movies on the table, we have book deals on the table, we have reality non-scripted television on the table, we have pilots on the table, we have club openings in Dubai, Vegas and all over the world.'
After being freed from prison and and remanded to house arrest for good behavior in March, Meeks said he would focus on spending time with his family before deciding on his next move.
'I’m in a place where I will be able to provide for my family and really change my life,' Meeks told ABC News from prison.
'I never thought that everyone in the world would recognize me for my looks, so I feel extremely blessed and very thankful.'
He also revealed that he worked out regularly to be camera ready after his release. 'I eat healthy. I do a lot of push-ups, pull-ups, dips, burpees, and I stay very active,' he said.
He said his family has been very supportive of him.
'I've got a lot of support my family, my friends, and from my fans - I get hundreds and hundreds of letters every month. I’m very thankful for all the support I've been getting,' he said.
