A Fresno woman is suing People magazine for breach of contract because her image was in a photo it published of Scott Peterson and his girlfriend. Sherina Vincent sold the photo to People. She says the magazine promised to remove a photo of her in the background when it published the picture of Peterson and his girlfriend, Amber Frey.
The suit was filed in federal court in Fresno on Thursday. A spokesman for People magazine declined to discuss the case in detail.
Scott Peterson is accused of killing his wife, Laci, and their unborn child. He has pleaded innocent.
Vincent says she sold four photos to People for $15,000. She says she has only been paid $5,000 because some of the photos appeared on other news outlets.
