WILMINGTON, Del. — Pageant officials say Miss Delaware Teen USA has resigned.

Melissa King says she is not stepping down because of a sex video that has surfaced. King told The (Wilmington) News Journal that she was aware of the video, but denied appearing in it.

Pageant officials say the 18-year-old King is being represented by Hagerstown attorney J. Gregory Hannigan. The attorney told the newspaper that a statement on the resignation will be issued.

Spokeswoman Dara Busch says the pageant's runner-up will replace King. The pageant's website lists Hailey Lawler of the Newark area as the 2012 runner-up.
