Being attractive can’t bail you out of trouble after being arrested — but it can make you famous afterward.
In the vein of “Hot Felon” Jeremy Meeks and “Hot Mugshot Guy” Sean Kory comes Sara Seawright, aka Prison Bae: a woman who either just sucks at driving or helped carry out an armed robbery, depending on who you ask.
According to public police records, Seawright, 24, of Arkansas offered a ride to a male acquaintance outside of a Target store in December 2012. Sounds sweet, right? Eh… not so much. Once inside, another passenger of Seawright’s reportedly robbed the guy at gunpoint and then pistol-whipped him.
For her part in the crime, Seawright was charged with aggravated robbery, first-degree battery, kidnapping, hindering apprehension, and tampering with evidence. Her mugshot looked like this:
Her new, more sophisticated mugshot is the result of her failure to show up to court over a more recent reckless-driving charge, for which she was required to pay a fine of $365. Still, it looks as though Seawright was able to scrounge up enough extra cash to get a nice blowout and possibly a fresh brow-threading as well. Add in a well-moisturized pout and that smoldering smile and bam. The only thing she’s stealing anymore is hearts! (We hope.)
Despite what her Internet-given moniker may imply, it seems unlikely that Seawright will actually be spending any time behind bars: She has reportedly already bonded out.
Then again, who knows what the future holds for our young Prison Bae. Perhaps a job styling mugshots? Based on how bonkers the Web goes every time a cute guy or gal gets booked, there may actually be a gap in the market.
