Meagan Simmons, a.k.a. "Hot Convict," Suing Website For Sexy Mug Shot Meme

Meagan Simmons, a.k.a. the hottest convict in the history of crime, is suing a website for proliferating her 2010 mug shot as a hilarious Internet meme.

Meagan Simmons Mug Shot

She's known across the Internet as "attractive convict" or "hot convict" (Google it!) after she was arrested on DUI charges in 2010 and this pic went viral.

Her photogenic mug shot was posted to an arrest database, and eventually found its way onto Internet image boards. The rest is pretty much history.

The Florida woman initially weathered her infamy with grace, doing interviews and having fun at her own expense. She said she'd even pose for Playboy.

"If [Hugh Hefner] himself contacted me, I think that's an offer I couldn't refuse," Simmons said just a few years back ... before things apparently changed.

Meagan is suing a company, Instant Checkmate (dot) com, who she says has been trying to cash in on her image, and invading her privacy in the process.

She claims that the Internet background check repository used her sexy booking photo for advertising and commercial purposes without her permission.

The suit, which seeks unnamed monetary damages and an injunction to prevent further use of her image, claims the exposure invaded Simmons' privacy

She also alleges that the site "disturbed her peace of mind."

"At the end of the day, this is intellectual property," Simmons' attorney, Matthew Crist, said. "If someone is going to use your image, they need to pay you for it."

Ironic, since only a severe lack of intellectual anything led to the image that spawned a thousand memes ... or the rest of these mug shots, for that matter:

Justin Bieber looks pretty darn happy here in his mug shot, doesn't he? Perhaps that's because he is under the influence of... something.
