Meghan Alt, a former winner of California’s Mrs. Orange County beauty pageant pleaded guilty to charges including possession of child pornography and lewd acts with a child on Friday.

Alt was arrested in October 2015 after sending pornographic images of a 4-year-old relative to a marine stationed in Southern California in exchange for cash and gifts.

The charges were pursued following an investigation by Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) investigators.

A judge sentenced the 27-year-old former beauty pageant winner to 300 days in jail and three years of probation, The Associated Press reported.

As a result of her guilty plea, prosecutors agreed to drop two additional charges of lewd acts with a child.

The judge ordered Alt to immediately begin serving her prison sentence following her plea on Friday.

Her attorney did not immediately respond to an emailed message seeking comment.

Alt is a  mother of three residing in the Southern California City of Irvine.

Meghan Alt was first crowned Mrs. Orange County in 2014 and later that same year went on to compete in the Mrs. California contest.
