NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – A California woman is suing a car dealership after she says a man who attempted to rape her got her information from the business.
In 2005, police say Karen Sommers came home to find a stranger in her home.
Sommers says she was bound by duct tape, beaten and the man attempted to rape her.
Her attacker was later identified through DNA evidence as Travis Batten, a mechanic at the Newport Beach dealership.
Batten was convicted and sentenced to 107 years in prison for attacking Sommers and another woman.
Sommers told KTLA that she believes Batten was able to get her name and address from the dealership, where she got her car serviced.
Now, she is suing the business for not protecting her personal information.
