Wrong Girl

The family of a young woman wrongly identified on the Internet as Kobe Bryant's accuser has hired an attorney in hopes of stopping her image from being used.

But attorney Sienna LaRene says Eagle residents Bob and Beth Matthews aren't looking for financial damages.

LaRene says she has sent ``cease and desist'' letters to several Web sites, asking them to stop using the woman's picture. If sites don't comply, she says she'll get court orders. She also did not rule out the possibility of libel lawsuits.

Similarities do exist between the Matthews' daughter and the alleged victim. But LaRene says some sites have altered photos to put the wrong woman's face on nude bodies.

Others have attached profanity-laden text to the woman's photo.
