Washington, March 1: A woman from UK - dubbed hot convict after her image surfaced on internet - has filed a lawsuit against a background check website, saying that the company used her arrest booking photo for commercial and advertising purposes, without compensating or even getting her permission.
Meagan Simmons, of Zephyrhills, Florida, filed the lawsuit in Hillsborough County Court against InstantCheckmate.com, CBS reported.
In her lawsuit, she said that all the exposure has disturbed her peace of mind, and invaded her privacy, causing her mental anguish.
The 28-year-old mother of four is seeking monetary damage and an injunction to prevent further use of her image.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, Simmons' image popped up on countless websites where she was branded "a hot convict."
The photograph was taken during a 2010 DUI charge.
Simmons said that it was nice and funny at first, but then started getting scary. (ANI)
