Beauty queen loses her crown after other contestants sue because she has a criminal record and was previously married

Caitlin Cifuentes

A Texas beauty queen has been stripped of her crown after fellow contestants argued she should have been disqualified for having a criminal record and a previous marriage

Caitlin Cifuentes’ reign as Miss Corpus Christi Latina was short-lived after six competitors, including the runner-up, sued the pageant’s director, Kayla Alvarez. 

Citing a contract contestants were required to sign, they argued that the 25-year-old winner’s past disqualified her, although Cifuentes rejected their claims.

Cifuentes is on deferred adjudicated probation for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and probation for a misdemeanor driving while intoxicated case, the Houston Chronicle reported.

After the lawsuit was filed, Acirema Alayeto, president and founder of Miss America Latina, announced Cifuentes would no longer be recognized as the winner.
‘Cifuentes does not have the proper credentials to hold such a title,’ Alayeto said in a statement.

Cifuentes won the pageant on June 11 and was supposed to representCorpus Christi at a state competition in August.
