An Oklahoma City man who claims he was falsely listed as a sex offender has filed a $1 million Oklahoma City federal court lawsuit against two Internet companies that provide criminal background search information.
“It’s amazing what I’ve been through,” Tony Lee Green, 33, told The Oklahoman. “I ended up basically homeless. I was kicked out of my neighborhood. I was ostracized from all my friends. … People just completely abandoned me.”
Green alleges Confi-Chek Inc., and Criminal Searches Inc., libeled and slandered him by falsely reporting he was convicted of a sex offense involving children and other “horrendous crimes” that he did not commit.
Repeated efforts to reach company officials for comment were unsuccessful.
