2/26/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


A contestant on "Survivor: Kaoh Rong" failed to outwit, outplay and outlast the feds ... because she pled guilty to felonies for falsifying Hurricane Katrina water test results ... TMZ has learned.  

Debbie Wanner, a 49-year-old chemist from Reading, PA, was arrested in 2010 and charged with 3 counts of falsifying test results from Hurricane Katrina water samples.

Wanner worked for a private lab that did testing for various Pennsylvania counties and private companies. Her company was hired to ensure water met various environmental standards.

According to legal docs, Wanner took on clients when she knew her company did not have the proper equipment to provide accurate results. The criminal complaint alleges she falsified water test results.

Wanner pled guilty to 3 felonies for falsifying results. She was placed on 1 year probation.

Stephanie Seymour DUI Mug Shot More Like Supermodel Candid

Exclusive Details

0120-stephanie-seymour-splash-02Stephanie Seymour escaped her DUI without one of those embarrassing celebrity mug shots, but it's not what you're thinking -- cops say she just got lucky due to a glitch.

TMZ broke the story ... the supermodel got arrested last Friday in Greenwich, CT. The State Police just released her booking photo, and quite frankly ... it looks like a happy candid shot taken while she's sitting and chatting with friends.

Cops tell us the photo was snapped as an officer was booking her and it's NOT a mistake. This is how CT State Police take mug shots now -- with a camera on an officer's desktop computer -- however cops say she should have been looking into the lens.

We're told it's unclear if human error or a computer glitch is behind the pic being taken at the wrong moment -- they've had "issues" with the new computerized system.

Either way, it worked out for Seymour.

Tip for DMX -- get arrested in Connecticut more often.

No telling if the sentence will be one too.
