Another Hot Felon Named “Prison Bae” Just Got A Modeling Contract Thanks To His Mug Shot And Heterochromia

Mekhi Alante Lucky is only 20-years-old and had been arrested a few times already. Last time it happened in April, 2016, for speeding in a stolen vehicle.

His mug shot went viral and caught the eye of Demanti O’Bryant, manager of Atlanta-based St. Claire Modeling. Since Mekhi managed to avoid jail time, he has signed a contract with the agency and started a new life.

His Instagram account has already over 25,000 followers.

If it helps him turn his life around and keeps him out of prison, who am I to complain?

I agree, some people do deserve second chance

Although it's be good if anyone can straighten their life out, it is a shame - this not being the first mugshot to fame in recent times - that a good honest guy out there with good looks can't get the same exposure. Do these modelling agencies trawl on line for criminal mugshots? If the guy has issues that have brought him to crime, is the high fashion world going to be any better a place for him?

There are lots of opportunities for a good honest guy out there, and very very few for someone with a criminal record. While I agree that crime shouldn't pay, I do worry that the prison system occasionally traps people into the very life we want them to get them out of. Things like this alleviate that somewhat, and if it works (of course it may not work) then one less criminal in the world improves the lives of more people than just that criminal.

the reason some people remain criminals is because they are unable to reintegrate back into society and revert back to crime as a means of living. Hopefully this opportunity will prevent them returning to criminal activity

I agree. This lifts him out of that bubble where he thinks he can only be one thing. Through this he will see so much more of the world and see broader opportunities.
