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.If it isn't blamed on Walker, then no doubt it'll be racist. Consider her replacement:
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. When the businesses were asked to proof ads they hadn't agreed to buy, or paid for, they got suspicious and called police.
Her attorney, Robert F. Nagel of Madison, said Saturday his client acknowledges her mistakes and expects to resolve the charges with a deferred prosecution agreement by early July if not before. He said he doesn't believe she actually gained any money from her actions.
