EL PASO, Texas (AP) - A former beauty queen in West Texas has been put on probation for shoplifting a $69 shirt from a retail store.

Lorena Tavera of El Paso on Monday pleaded guilty to theft. A judge then sentenced the 2008 Miss El Paso USA winner to nine months of probation.

Tavera also must abide by a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, do 80 hours of community service and undergo regular alcohol and drug testing.

El Paso police last August arrested Tavera after store workers noticed the theft and followed her outside the business. Tavera was accused of slipping the shirt into a shopping bag and walking away.
