TAMPA, Fla. - A 28-year-old mother of four has filed a lawsuit against a background check website, saying the company used her attractive arrest booking photo for commercial and advertising purposes, without compensating her or even getting her permission.
In her lawsuit, she says all the exposure has disturbed her peace of mind, invaded her privacy and caused her mental anguish. The suit seeks monetary damages and an injunction to prevent further use of her picture.
The Tampa Bay Times reports that Simmons' image popped up on countless websites where she was branded "a hot convict."
The photo was taken during a 2010 DUI charge.
