The 19-year-old pageant queen forced to renounce her title as Miss Delaware Teen USA after becoming embroiled in a porn scandal in February, faced outstanding charges of underage alcohol consumption and theft.
Melissa King appeared in court today and was given a year probation in Maryland for the alcohol violation.
Charges of theft that accused Miss King of stealing money from a bus fare box were dropped.
The brunette beauty arrived at Worcester County District Court in Ocean City with her attorney Greg Hannigan and boyfriend, Dave Stout who said the teenager was ‘doing great.’
Refusing to comment on the pornographic video she allegedly appeared in costing her her beauty queen title, Miss King’s attorney confirmed she would not answer ‘rude or invasive questions.’
The outstanding arrest warrants were issued in 2012 after she failed to appear in court on citations for theft and possessing alcohol as a minor.
‘Neither one is extraditable from Delaware,’ Officer Mike Levy, police spokesman for the department in Ocean City, Maryland, told the Delaware News Journal last year.
‘The warrants are on file. If she surrenders herself in Maryland, she will have to go before the court to deal with the charges.’
The charges came shortly after King, then the reigning Miss Teen Delaware International 2012, exited foster care and around the time she allegedly recorded the porn video.
Regarding allegations that she had stolen money from a city bus fare box, Mr Hannigan explained the charge, saying it had been a misunderstanding.
Miss King had paid $2 to ride a bus with a friend and then taken the fares out when they decided not to take the journey.
Mr Hannigan added that his client was ‘relieved’ to be given unsupervised probation and as the driver, took responsibility for the open bottle of Rum discovered in her father’s car when police pulled her over for a cracked tail light.
Miss King was said to be excited to have been accepted into college and was looking forward to pursuing a career in journalism.
Beauty queen: She won the title just four months after she allegedly filmed the video in June 2012
King originally denied she had appeared in the damning porn video, but the woman, who looks extremely similar to the beauty queen, identifies herself by name in the footage.
‘I, Melissa King, am doing this scene of my own free will and I am of sound mind and body. I am not under the influence of drugs or any mind-altering substances,’ she said at the start.
Following the release of the video, she was forced to give up her crown and take down her Facebook fan page.
A spokesperson for the Miss Teen USA pageant released a statement saying: ‘I would like to confirm the Miss Delaware Teen USA pageant has received a resignation letter from Miss King’s attorney.’
Arrests: She was cited for underage drinking and theft last year but never turned up to court, records show
The video is believed to have been shot some time in June 2012. She was crowned as Miss Delaware Teen USA four months after.
At the beginning of the video, a girl in a purple patterned dress sits on a bed and answers questions from the man behind the camera.
The man asks her when she turned 18, she replies: ‘Three months ago, in March.’ King’s birthday is in March, according to the Miss Delaware Teen USA website.
The interviewer then asks her what made her want to do her first adult video. ‘I thought it’d be fun and it sounded like I needed the money,’ the young girl says. ‘So I just decided to do it.’
According to Delaware Online, the interview then fades to another set of questions where she is asked about being a ‘Miss Teen?’
When the woman acts reluctant to talk about it, he says ‘I’m not going to say the state or anything… You did beauty pageants?’
‘I’ve done them, yes,’ she responds.
Following the scandal, the pageant reached out to the first runner-up Hailey Lawler, a high school senior, who has now replaced King.
King has also been offered $250,000 by internet company YouPorn to be their spokesman, which would mean promotion work but she would not have to shoot any sex scenes.
