Katherine Rees, Former Miss Nevada, Faces Meth Charges
LAS VEGAS, July 10 (UPI) — Katherine Rees was charged with four meth-related felonies this week.
The 30-year-old former Miss Nevada USA, who was stripped of her crown over explicit photos in 2006, is accused of trafficking in a controlled substance, sale of a controlled substance and two counts of conspiracy to violate the uniform controlled substances act.
Rees was previously charged with resisting arrest after a traffic violation in 2008, and and avoided drug paraphernalia and marijuana charges by pleading guilty to possession of a drug not for interstate commerce in 2012.
“I don’t do drugs,” she said on Australian series “Border Security: Australia’s Front Line” after being questioned for cocaine and meth at Sydney airport in 2009. “I don’t use cocaine. I don’t use any kind of pill, no kind of Xanax, no anything. I don’t use anything.”
