The good news is, Miss America will take the witness stand after all.
Lauren Nelson, who at first would not testify in the online sex-predator cases for which she served as “bait” of a sort, will testify after all. This will provide needed follow-through for these cases and defuse the criticism that this was an empty publicity stunt for the TV show “America’s Most Wanted.”
Brief recap: Nelson, who said she was propositioned online when she was a teen, pretended to be a teen again for an online sex-predator “sting” conducted in Suffolk County, on New York’s Long Island. Guys who showed up allegedly expecting a night of illegal sex instead were greeted by cops, camera crews and an indignant John Walsh, host of “America’s Most Wanted.”
