COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Ohio Attorney General's office is suing a man accused of texting thousands of unwanted sales messages to people, including many on the National Do Not Call registry.

The lawsuit alleges that Darren Sizemore used an automated dialing system to send the unsolicited text messages to consumers across the country in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

The lawsuit filed in Lorain County court Tuesday also alleges that Sizemore directed individuals to websites to claim prizes or obtain free or discounted services.

Sizemore is accused of misleading consumers about the prizes and the conditions needed to win them.

The phone number for Sizemore in northeast Ohio is disconnected.

Attorney General Mike DeWine is seeking unspecific damages and an order directing Sizemore to stop sending the texts.
