EL PASO — A former Miss El Paso title-holder has pleaded guilty to shoplifting charges.

Lorena Tavera entered her plea on Monday afternoon at the County Courthouse in downtown El Paso.

Tavera was arrested last year after police said she stole a shirt from the Dillard's on Sunland Park.

A judge gave Tavera nine months of probation, and fined her $1,000. Tavera also has to perform 80-hours of community service.

As part of her probation, Tavera is not allowed back in that store.
