A former Miss Delaware Teen USA who resigned her title after a sex video surfaced is due in a Maryland court next month to respond to a theft charge.

Police in Ocean City, Md., charged 18-year-old Melissa King last summer with taking money from the cash box of a city bus, reports the News Journal of Wilmington. King is also accused of underage possession of alcohol.

A judge last week rescinded a warrant for her arrest and set a court date for April 22.

King gave up her crown last month amid allegations that she appeared in an online sex video. King denied appearing in the video.
