The operation was filmed for a segment of "America's Most Wanted." Nelson, 20, posed as a young teen in chat rooms, where she said men would begin sending her instant messages.
The undercover sex sting that used Miss America as bait may be in trouble after the beauty queen told prosecutors that she does not plan to testify against the men she helped arrest.
Lauren Nelson, 20, of Lawton, Okla., posed as a teenager and lured men into chatting online and meeting her at a home, where police and crews were waiting. Eleven men were arrested in the sting. But one or all of the cases could be in jeopardy after Nelson told prosecutors she did not plan on returning to Long Island to testify, said Suffolk District Attorney Thomas Spota.
