This is a bit ridiculous!
Hot convict Jeremy Meeks has secured himself a lawyer known for his aggressive tactics whose name is Tai Bogan, and that lawyer is making some outlandish requests these days!
Which may bode well for the sexy prisoner who is facing gun and gang related charges.
The lawyer says that it is vital his client looks as "good as possible" which is why he's trying to secure top designers to clothe Meeks during his trial.
In docs filed, Bogan also requests "that measures be taken so he may wear civilian clothing that is fitting for his body structure."
Bogan also asked for Meeks to be allowed to not wear shackles during his trial because "shackles can interfere with Mr. Meeks' ability to communicate with his lawyer." However we're hearing that Judge Stephenson has denied Meeks this request.
"We are talking to designers to provide clothing for him during this case. We want him to look as good as possible in the court. We are worried that current pictures of him in prison garb will mean he will not get a fair trial."
Meeks' newly landed talent agent Gina Rodriguez, who represents the woman at the center of the Donald Sterling scandal V. Stiviano and Octo-Mom, also talked a bit about what her client Meeks will be wearing during the trial.
"The modeling management we are working with has a stylist who was going to dress Jeremy in a Tom Ford suit."
She also defended her signing Meeks as a client when she said:
"Everybody has a story, and I, of all people, know that. If this was a different situation, like if someone was actually hurt or there was violence involved, I definitely would not be taking him on. But we don’t know Jeremy’s full story yet, and I don’t feel like he got a fair break."
Although Meeks' judge wants his client to be allowed to wear civilian clothes for future preliminary hearings, once the actual trial stars - his lawyer Tai Bogan says it's the law that he can wear whatever clothes that he wants!
Maybe he can show off his model runway skills then! Wouldn't that be something?
