Alysa Bathrick became known as the "cute mugshot girl" after she reportedly bragged about her booking photo on Twitter.

From #MugshotMonday to #FelonCrushFriday, booking photos have made dozens of suspected and convicted criminals internet famous. Here's our list of some of the most memorable:

1. Alysa Bathrick

Eighteen-year-old Alysa Bathrick became known as the "cute mugshot girl" last December following her arrest on charges of possession of a schedule IV controlled substance with intent to distribute.

The teen reportedly posted her booking photo on Twitter, writing: "Surrendered myself at 7 a.m., got released at 11:30 a.m. F*** what you heard. And my mugshot's cute.”

Bathrick's legal issues continued when she was arrested for shoplifting in January. The office of the Wake County Clerk of Court confirmed with Crime Watch Daily she was found guilty in that case.

Bathrick was convicted of a misdemeanor and is now on probation/parole, according to the North Carolina Department Of Public Safety.

Meeks became an internet sensation in June 2014 when he was arrested by Stockton, California police.

He was charged with felony weapon and gang related charges and sentenced to 27 months in federal prison but that didn't stop internet admirers from launching the #FelonCrushFriday hashtag in his honor.

Meeks told ABC News in February he is hoping for a November release and has plans to turn his internet fame into a modeling and acting career after signing with White Cross Management.

Sean Kory was arrested in November 2014 for allegedly attacking a woman dressed as a Fox News reporter for Halloween.

Jeremy Meeks had some competition to contend with following the November 2014 arrest of Sean Kory. In a re-cap of Halloween arrests Santa Cruz police stated the 29-year-old was taken into custody after he attacked a person dressed as a Fox News reporter, telling him he "hates Fox News."

Kory then allegedly grabbed the victim’s microphone, placed it down the front of his pants and proceeded to “rub the microphone on his crotch” before attacking the victim with an aluminum tennis racket. Police said the victim was not injured.

A spokesperson for the Superior Court of California County of Santa Cruz did not immediately respond to Crime Watch Daily's request for a status update on the case.

However, a Facebook page attributed to Kory states he, like Meeks, was also offered a modelling deal, although it's unclear if he's landed any campaigns.
