Weird News: Miss Wisconsin Resigns After Identity Theft Charges

Miss Wisconsin, Shaletta Porterfield, allegedly has a secret talent. It's forgery.
A Madison woman who would have competed in Las Vegas next month for the crown of Miss USA may instead be resolving identity theft charges.

Shaletta Porterfield  won the Miss Wisconsin USA title last year but resigned Friday after being charged in Dane County last month with three counts of misappropriating identity information to obtain money. She has entered not guilty pleas and the case is set for trial in July.
Porterfield, 26, apparently told police she had faked signatures of three business owners on contracts for advertising with a marketing company Porterfield was working for last summer, the Waunakee Tribune reported.
