Meghan Breanna Alt, the 27-year-old former Mrs. Orange County, has pled guilty to possession of child pornography and committing lewd acts with a minor under 14-years-old. She has been sentenced to 300 days in prison, three years probation, and court-ordered participation in child abuser's treatment, reports the Orange County Register.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Alt previously pled not guilty to charges that she took sexually explicit photos of a 4-year-old female relative and offered the photos online in exchange for cash and gifts.

One of the solicitors of Alt's child pornography was a Marine stationed in Southern California. Naval Criminal Investigative Service began investigating the case and then alerted county and federal authorities.

Alt has until Friday to report to the Orange County jail to complete her sentence.
