Victoria Larson is looking on the bright side of this not-so-regal news.
Days ago, the Bachelor contestant, who has come to be known as Queen Victoria on Matt James‘ season of the dating series, made headlines when her 2012 mug shot from a shoplifting arrest reemerged. At the time, the then-19-year-old was accused of stealing just over $250 worth of merchandise from a Publix supermarket. She was charged with first-degree petit theft and pleaded no contest. Larson was ordered to six months of probation after serving two days in jail.
The reality star has now spoken out about the resurfaced situation—and her reaction is more positive than you might have expected. “I feel liberated, like everything’s exposed,” she said in an interview on Good Morning America. “I can tell my future husband, ‘Google me. I have no secrets to hide.'”
When the news first broke, Larson seemingly responded when she shared this quote on Instagram: “Every saint has a past & every sinner has a future.” The 28-year-old also cited the Bible verse, John 8:7, which reads, “And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, ‘Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.'”
