Meghan Breanna Alt: Beauty Queen Mom Busted On Child Porn Charge, Sold Pic Of 4-year-Old, Cops Say

Meghan Breanna Alt is a 25-year-old mom-of-three from Orange County, California, who gave birth to her first baby boy after two little girls just last month. She is said to be an active member of the Mormon church, and a volunteer at a church-run child-care facility in San Clemente, California.

Alt is even a beauty queen — a winner of the 2014 “Mrs. Orange County” pageant who also was a competitor for the title of “Mrs. California” in June of last year.

But according to police, unknown to her husband, Meghan Alt until Wednesday was leading a dark double life, a life, investigators say, of prostitution and pornography — and even child porn. It was that sickening charge that got her arrested on Wednesday, a charge of producing child pornography and selling it to a United States Marine.

“Alt is suspected of using a four-year-old family member to manufacture child pornography and electronically distribute it for financial gain and/or gifts,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

Alt was arrested at a traffic stop in San Diego County, with her husband the car. But police believe that the husband was simply in the dark about his wife’s bizarre secret, and had no knowledge of her involvement in child porn, according to a report on KTLA-TV in Los Angeles.

Sheriff’s Department Lieutenant Jeff Hallock described the charges against the mother-of-three as “pretty egregious allegations at this point.”

But police did specify what the exact relation of the 4-year-old to Alt actually was, whether the girl was Alt’s own daughter, or a member of another branch of the family. But the images of the little girl that Alt allegedly sent to the Marine — who has not been named publicly because he has not faced any charges — were described as sexually explicit.

Because Alt volunteered in a child-care facility, police are worried that the beauty queen may have claimed more victims in her child pornography operation. When the mom was arrested, her three children remained in the custody of her husband, without Child Protective Services needing to be called in, according to a report in The Orange County Register.

Police said that under questioning, Alt admitted that she did indeed send the sexually explicit images of the 4-year-old to the Marine, whose activities were discovered by the Navy Criminal Investigative Service, and that she received money and “gifts” in return.

But the child porn is not the only thing that cops believe the mom was selling for “cash and gifts.” Though she has not been charged with prostitution, police say that they suspect Meghan Breanna Alt of placing Craigslist ads, offering herself for sexual acts in exchange for cash.

In fact, in their statement, the Orange County Sheriff’s investigators said that at least one of her sex-for-cash transactions happened with her kids present.

On her Facebook page, Alt claims to make her money working for a Utah-based health company, Young Living Essential Oils. She also claims to be a personal trainer and “raindrop technique specialist.”

The Meghan Alt case is reminiscent of another case in 2013, in which a wealthy Dallas, Texas, area socialite and grandmother was found guilty of trading child pornography. Erika Susan Perdue, age 43 at the time, was sentenced to 14-years behind bars after pleading guilty to distributing child pornography, which she would download off the internet.

But unlike Perdue, Alt is actually charged with creating child pornography — with a 4-year-old family member.

The Orange County investigators say they are still investigating the activities of Meghan Breanna Alt, who is being held on $100,000 bail on charges of producing and distributing child pornography as well as lewd and lascivious acts with a child.
