(CBS) -- Beauty queen Caroline Schwitzky has reportedly been disqualified from competition in the Miss Florida pageant after pageant officials discovered she held another title when she was 18 in a competition at a porn convention: "Miss Exxxotica."

According to WSVN-TV, Schwitzky admitted that she posed for revealing photos in 2008, but claims the pics were for a $2,000 beauty contest and not for pornography. The photos did subsequently end up on an adult website.

The 21-year-old was crowned Miss Weston USA on Feb. 20. Once the photos hit the Internet, Tel-Air Productions, the company that represents the Miss Weston pageant, received a flood of e-mails demanding Schwitzky to step down due to immorality, which she did.

Schwitzky said that she regrets her mistakes, but that they shouldn't be held against her.

"I am not this. I am not perfect," Schwitzky told WSVN. "I think we all deserve a second chance." Schwitzky claims she has already been offered to pose for Playboy, but has declined.
