    Former beauty queen charged with fraud.


    A federal jury found Denise Henderson, 44, guilty of wire fraud and of making false statements and concealing information from the Social Security Administration. Federal sentencing guidelines call for between 2 years and 2 years in prison, prosecutors said. No sentencing date was set. Henderson did not comment.

    A lawyer for Henderson, Mrs. Minnesota International in 1999 and Mrs. Iowa International in 2001, has said she suffers debilitating chronic pain from a 1995 car accident.

    Federal prosecutors noted during the trial that Henderson collected benefits while making over 200 appearances as Mrs. Minnesota International in a year. Henderson, of Woodbury, currently serves as a director for several pageants.

    According to a report she filed in 1997, Henderson said she had continuous back and neck pain and could not move or straighten up, had migraines four or five times a week that lasted most of a day and could not drive for more than 20 minutes at a time.
