A court clerk at the Somers Town Court has reported that a former Mrs. Westchester has entered a guilty plea on charges of petty larceny. It was alleged by police that the former pageant winner had falsified business records at her place of work to cover the personal expenses she charged to the company. Since the charge was for petty larceny, it can be surmised that the defendant was not suspected of stealing more than a $1,000. The court has ordered that she pay restitution to her employer.
