Former Mrs. Orange County Jailed on Child Porn Charges

A beauty queen who was crowned Mrs. Orange County in June of 2014 has been charged with creating and distributing child pornography for a Marine in San Diego.

Meghan Breanna Alt, 25, was arrested during a traffic stop in San Diego County Wednesday after Naval Criminal Investigative Services (NCIS) discovered images of the victim. Soon after her arrest, Alt confessed to the crime and was being held on $100,000 bail.

“Alt is suspected of using a 4-year-old family member to manufacture child pornography and electronically distribute it for financial gain and/or gifts,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said. She is believed to have used Craigslist to solicit customers.

Authorities now say they are looking for other potential victims in Orange County, San Diego and elsewhere. They are particularly concerned about volunteer work Alt did at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in both San Clemente and Irvine, which gave her unfettered access to young children.
