Former beauty pageant queen pleads guilty to possessing child pornography

A former Mrs. Orange County has pleaded guilty to making child pornography using her four-year-old relative.

Meghan Breanna Alt, 27, took sexually explicit photos and videos of the young minor in exchange for money and gifts, according to various reports.

The young mother and former beauty queen was sentenced to three years of probation and 300 days in county jail, court documents say.

She was also ordered to complete 15 days of community service and a Child Abuser's Treatment Program.

Alt was first arrested in 2015 on suspicion of the production and distribution of child pornography and lewd contact with a minor after she was accused of sending the media to a Marine based in Southern California, according to police records.

At the time of Alt's arrest, deputy special agent Mark Selby of Homeland Security Investigations said, "As this case underscores, the suspects in these cases come from all walks of life. The stereotype that such crimes are perpetrated exclusively by 'dirty old men' simply doesn't apply."

The same year, Alt competed in the Mrs. California pageant, following her crowning as Mrs. Orange County in 2014.

Not yet in police custody, Alt is set to report to the Orange County jail on Friday in order to complete her sentence.
