Former Miss America Bess Myerson took the Fifth Amendment in a New York state court hearing on charges that she and boyfriend Carl Capasso spirited away property from the Long Island home Capasso once shared with his wife.

She was indicted in October on charges that she tried to bribe state Supreme Court Justice Hortense W. Gabel in an effort to reduce the alimony in the Capasso divorce case.
