There is no type of pageantry that doesn’t take place in Brazil…
The annual Miss Criminal 2015 beauty pageant held yesterday at the Talavera Bruce women’s prison in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
27-year-old Michelle Neri Rangel who has been behind bars since 2010 is this year’s winner.
Michelle was sentenced to 39 years for robbery with an additional six years added on for prostitution inside the prison.
The purpose of the contest -which is carried out like every other beauty pageant- is to boost the self-esteem of female inmates and is supported by community and church groups.
