Sex, drugs, rock & roll, and... felony convictions? It is no secret that women love a bad boy, but can the same be said for men? There must be some science behind the sex appeal of misbehaving. Is it the thrill? The risks? Nice guys finish last, and bad girls have more fun; isn't that what they say? The sense of adventure sometimes trumps the sense of danger when it comes to a sexy criminal. Some of these felons out there have us questioning our own morals.
In recent years we've seen our fair share of mug shots of beautiful criminals going viral. Now, thanks to shows like Orange Is the New Black, the sex appeal of female felons has reached an all time high. It seems that we just can't get enough! From DUIs and tax evasion, to burglary, to murder - these ladies make it tough for us to accept their guilt. How can someone so sexy be so flawed? It may just be human nature to always lust after what we can't (or shouldn't!) have. These days, there are even dating sites specifically designed for those of us on the outside to connect with convicted criminals.
At the click of a mouse, you can be on your way to falling in love with a sexy convicted felon. Nothing like some prison jumpsuits and stories of illegal activity to get the sparks flying in a new relationship! Let's try to find out exactly where we draw the line by checking out some of the hottest convicted female criminals!
10 Haeli Wey - Hot For Teacher
After rumors swirled around Westlake High School teacher Haeli Wey "hooking up" with a couple of her students, the math teacher was arrested on two felony charges on December 17, 2015. The victims, two male students, allege that their sexual rendezvous with Ms. Wey, both of which lasted several months, were consensual. Although both victims were 17 years old, the age of consent in Texas, that doesn't make up for the fact that under Texas law it is illegal for a teacher to have intimate relations with students despite their age and consent.
Looking like she could pass for a student herself, the 28-year-old tried, to no avail, to get her teen lovers to hide evidence of their illegal affairs. The teacher's demise came when the first victim got wind of her affair with another student. The boy then went to his parents with the information and digital evidence, leading to Wey's arrest and subsequent conviction.
9 Mindy Sanghera - The Jealous Convict
Hell hath no fury like a jealous woman. The knock-out in this photo is Mindy Sanghera, a dental student at Birmingham University in England, who is currently serving a prison sentence for murdering her married lover's pregnant teen wife. This one's a doozy.
The victim, 17-year-old Sana, was brutally murdered early in her pregnancy in her home, two years into her husband's affair with Sangera.
Though the case is currently being investigated as a possible wrongful imprisonment, the possibility that this striking beauty butchered a pregnant teen in a jealous rage is enough to make you think twice about cheating.
8 Stephanie Boudoin - Dubbed "The Sexiest Criminal"
Dubbed "The World's Sexiest Criminal," Stephanie Boudoin was arrested in Canada and charged with a whopping 114 counts ranging from burglarizing 42 homes throughout Canada, and hiding an arsenal of illegal and deadly weapons.
The 21-year-old nursing student made headlines, not just because of her relatively uninteresting crimes, but because of her knock-out selfies. Thanks to the internet, photos of Boudoin in a bikini surfaced and went viral, leading this brunette bombshell to be plastered all over the web, stealing our hearts (and potentially our wallets). Chances are a one-night-stand with this beauty could cost you more than the price of a few drinks. Would you risk it?
7 Estibaliz Carranza - The Ice Cream...
Ice cream shop owner Estibaliz Carranza, now 36, was charged and convicted for shooting her husband and her lover. Ah, who doesn't love a good murderess? Over a two year span, the Austrian beauty shot and killed both her lover and her husband. Turning on the ice cream machines in the store to drown out the sound, she used a chainsaw to dismember the bodies. After the murder and dismemberment, the sexy redhead used the men's' remains to fill up ice cream tubs, put them into a deep freeze, and buried the tubs in concrete under her store. She even took cement mixing classes just for the occasion!
6 Alexis Neiers - Former Member Of Bling Ring Group
Okay, let's take a step back from the disturbing murderesses, and move on to this blue-eyed babe. It's hard to hate her, because although she is a convicted felon, her crimes are much more forgivable than others on this list.
Alexis Neiers was a member of the infamous "Bling Ring" group. You may remember the notorious burglars that made a name for themselves by breaking into and burglarizing the homes of celebrities. Maybe it is the public's inability to view celebrities as "real people", but most of the world has forgiven Neiers for her crimes; including Hollywood! Neiers went on to star in an E! reality series called Pretty Wild, which didn't last long, being cancelled after only one season. Today, Alexis has overcome drug addiction, criminal behavior, and is now a mother and, most recently, a doula. Who says you can't turn your life around?
5 Amanda Knox - Drama In Italy
How could I possibly write this list without including Amanda Knox? The Seattle native was convicted for the 2007 murder of her housemate, Meredith Kercher, in Italy.
Knox's case has gained worldwide media coverage since the murder, leaving the public undecided on her guilt. The improper handling of evidence on the Italian government's part, the lies, deceit, and mismatching stories of all involved, lead this to be one of the most talked-about court cases in recent history.
After serving time in an Italian prison, being tried, acquitted and finally set free, Amanda returned home to Seattle, only to be ordered to return to Italian courts to stand trial once again for the murder of Meredith Kercher.
Eventually, Knox's charges were overturned, and she was finally free from the grasp of the Italian justice system. She is currently engaged to Colin Sutherland, and it has been reported that she plans to publish a book regarding Italy's judicial system.
4 Meagan McCullough - DUI
The slightly pursed lips, the tousled hair. This looks more like a model's head shot than a mug shot. This mother of four is just enough of a bad girl to pad her sex appeal, but not have us running and screaming for the hills. The single McCullough, 27, was popped in 2010 for a DUI in Florida. It was only recently that the sexy mug shot began circulating online, breaking the hearts of millions of men all around the world.
The misdemeanor crime gives us hope that female felons can be sexy, and sane, and not leave us sleeping with one eye open.
3 Alexis Wright - Ran Illicit Business In Zumba Studio
This 30-year-old wife and mother of one was convicted of running a prostitution business out of her Zumba studio in 2012. The seductive fitness instructor, along with her private investigator friend, ran a rather successful prostitution gig, having over 100 clients come in regularly to the small Latin dance-inspired fitness studio. Among the list of crimes against her, Wright is accused of adultery, tax evasion, conspiracy, and videotaping sexual acts without consent of the other party. We want to believe that she's a total sleaze, but this petite, brunette babe makes it tough to hold it against her.
2 Rachel Wade - Sentenced To 27 Years Behind Bars
Love triangles never end well, do they? Rachel Wade, the blonde-haired, blue-eyed beauty is currently serving a 27-year prison sentence for the murder of Sarah Ludemann, a romantic nemesis who was also involved with Wade's lover.
Wade, 17, stabbed Ludemann in the heart during a heated confrontation over their two-timing boyfriend after a month-long feud over the little slime ball. Lacking premeditation, Wade was booked on second-degree murder after her self-defense excuse fell through.
1 Jodi Arias
Are you shocked by this one? Probably not, but I had to include her on the list. In 2013, Arias was convicted of slaying her boyfriend, Travis Alexander, as he showered in his home in Arizona. You certainly don't want this possessive, obsessed beauty as an ex-girlfriend. The media circus surrounding this case launched Jodi Arias to the top of the "sexy criminal" list. Despite being a complete and utter obsessive psychopath, men around the world fell victim to her charm and sex appeal, including one of the jurors during her trial!
He reportedly fell "head over heels" for the attractive murderer, being one who wanted to avoid sentencing Arias to death. Just goes to show that even if you have front row seats to the trial of gruesome, heinous crimes, a man can never be too safe from a bright-eyed beautiful defendant.
