ATLANTA -- "It was about 12 years ago," said Lindsey Bullard. "I was 14."

It was spring break in Panama City, Fla. for Bullard, who was in middle school at the time in Powder Springs along with a small group of her friends.

But what would happen on that vacation would launch Boyd into the national spotlight.

Bullard quickly became the face of the popular Girl's Gone Wild video franchise.

"We went out for a walk and in the moment, somebody asked me to flash them for beads and I did," Bullard said.

The second flash would come from a photographer.

"Split second decision," said Bullard. "I got my beads, and I went on about my business."

That flash captured a pornographic image for the world to see.

"I had no clue. No camera crew. There were no T-shirts. I didn't sign anything. I had no clue," said Bullard.

The photo, however, would take some time before surfacing.

"Two years later, a friend was like 'You're on the cover of Girls Gone Wild, and I was like 'There's no way I'm on the cover,' and he was like 'Yeah, you are...Come on over here and I'll show you,'" Bullard said.

She made the cover of the DVD and was featured in one of the clips.

"I mean, you can still buy the video online," she said.

The state supreme court just recently heard Bullard's case and the justices are now deciding whether they should send it to a jury.

"I think it's taken so long because the laws are so unclear around everything," Bullard said.

At issue? Whether a minor can consent to being photographed.

"You shouldn't be able to use anybody's image without their consent - especially a minor," Bullard said.

Her personal goals when it's all said and done?

"I'd like to see more laws cover and protect other kids from this happening," Bullard said.

Meanwhile, her attorneys are hoping the case will go to trial.
