Former Miss West Virginia Allison Williams is taking the big stick to 59 defendants for allegedly selling a fake sex video of her on the internet. The video - punted via websites showing the real Ms Williams in beauty queen regalia - claims to show the law school student engaged in sex acts in a news truck during a stint as a news reporter.

Williams discovered the material last October "during her first weeks of law school at the West Virginia University College of Law as she was searching the Internet for a favorable newspaper article to give her mother", a press release states. She immediately retained a law firm who last week filed against defendants in Australia, Belgium, Cayman Islands, Canada, The Netherlands, South Africa and the United States.

Williams (seen here on the right next to her alleged impersonator) said: "This has been a nightmare. The woman in the video is not me. She doesn't even look like me. I have never participated in any pornographic video." She further insisted that she had never worked as a news reporter.

Williams donned the Miss West Virginia crown in 2003, and thereafter embarked on an inspirational tour of the state "working with children who are striving to overcome adversity in their lives". Leah Summers, the Executive Director of the Miss West Virginia Organization, said: "It is absolutely ludicrous to think that these videos are Allison." ®
