A Florida woman whose mugshot was used by a website for their background check service is suing.
Meagan Simmons a.k.a. “cute convict” a.k.a. “model inmate” was arrested for DUI in 2010 and shortly after the background check company started using her image in adverts, while not even bothering to get her consent. She claims their actions left her feeling “humiliated and embarrassed” and suffering “mental pain and anguish.”
“It was flattering at first,” she told WTSP-TV in Tampa. “You know, people thought it was pretty. I thought it was awful, but I have kids and people now know where I live.”
