A young woman’s mugshot has become a sensation on social media, where she’s trending under the hashtag #prisonbae. 

Sarah Seawright’s mugshot was posted on a popular tumblr page a week ago, where it quickly spread to the rest of the web, and was tweeted by NFL star Chad Johnson. 

Seawright was convicted in 2011 for aggravated robbery and was sentenced to 120 months in prison and five years probation, according to Channel 11 News. She is currently out of prison.
