Why Are Public Arrest Records Online?

Public means Public

 

Most people know someone who has been arrested at some point, or, perhaps they have themselves experienced arrest. Often, the arrest was a one-time incident. Unfortunately, no matter what the reason for the arrest or how long ago it occurred, an arrest becomes a matter of public record. This has long been the case, but for many years arrest records were not easily accessible. To find a record, the average member of the public had to go to the courthouse in the county that the arrest occurred and conduct a search. Finding out whether another person had ever been arrested anywhere in the United States would have been a time-consuming and potentially expensive inquiry. Those days are long gone!

**Records Easily Accessible Online**

Today, it is easy for anyone to run an online search to see whether another person has been arrested anywhere in the United States. The search can be completed in mere minutes. You can blame or thank (depending on your view) two sources for this ease of access: the U.S. government and private companies.

Government Records

Finding public records the “old fashioned” way by going to the place where the record was stored was not only difficult for the searcher, but it was also troublesome for the governmental entity that held the record. The entity had to dedicate employees and other resources to help individuals locate, copy, and process payment for the records. Information technology now allows the government to largely automate that process by transferring the records online and provides users with search, download, and easy payment capabilities.

For these and other reasons, government entities are increasingly publishing their public records, including arrest records, online. Typically, to search government posted records, you still have to go to the individual government’s site and perform the search. This means that researching someone’s arrest record could mean visiting multiple county websites.

Private Companies

Private companies, spotting an opportunity to profit, have stepped in to take over where the government left off, making it even easier to access arrest records. Companies use technology to pull arrest information from multiple government sites and other databases and aggregate that data so that all records can be combed in a single search.

Some of these companies only disclose the arrest records upon payment by an interested individual. Other companies, however, use aggregated data to disseminate individuals’ mug shots and basic arrest information, providing open access through a basic Google, Yahoo, or Bing search. Obviously, the publication of an individual’s mug shot or arrest record is professionally and socially harmful. Erasemugshots.com works to minimize this harm by erasing individuals’ mug shots and arrest records.

Remove Arrest Records Online

Why Is My Mug Shot Online?

 

Many of us have an embarrassment in our past. In fact, it’s a little shocking to discover that 41% of Americans have been arrested at least once by the age of 23. The vast majority of these arrests are utterly minor; most Americans also never go to jail, and many of us get released the next day.

Unfortunately, that means many of us also have an arrest record and mugshot on the internet. And in working to remove your online mugshot, you may feel like you’ve been convicted of a crime by a court you’ve never been in or heard of.

If you’re arrested, the records of that arrest tend to be available to the public. This is not consistent from state to state; each state has different laws about what records and types of records are available to the public. However, as a general rule, anyone can request and receive any public records tied to your name, and that includes the record of your arrest, divorce, bankruptcy, foreclosure, etc.

This technicality has led to the rise of a niche publishing industry focused on arrest records; essentially, these sites are vast, searchable engines that collect and post every publicly available mugshot they can get their hands on. Some will also post the entire arrest record; others will just post the mugshot.

 

Can My Online Mugshot Damage My Reputation?

Unfortunately, the answer is “yes.” Furthermore, it can create a problem where there really shouldn’t be one. For example, some states automatically seal the records of juveniles for most crimes, for the express purpose of preventing youthful mistakes from causing long-term damage to citizens. But if the law enforcement agency places the mugshot online, then it can be copied and posted, even when a background check doesn’t turn up any arrest.

This can cause problems with finding a job, with personal relationships and create a whole host of other problems, especially if your online mugshot is highly ranked in your search results.  The end result is that many people struggle with reputation damage and bigger problems than the actual arrest event in itself.

 

Is Posting My Mug Shot Online Legal?

Everything about this situation feels a bit like reversing the concept of the justice system; after all, we’re innocent until proven guilty in the eyes of the law by a jury of our peers. At the end of the day, these sites are simply reporting a factual event in time, and are making no claims to innocence or guilt.

Individual states are taking action as well, but that can have its own problems. Georgia recently passed a law that doesn’t ban publishing mugshots… but does ban charging a fee to remove them? Unfortunately, this only applies to mugshots posted online by the state of Georgia and is based on public domain laws, so it will be of limited use for taking down an online mugshot. Florida proposed a bill that went even further, putting fines and other restrictions on mugshot websites that leave a mugshot up online after a removal request but that bill was denied.

How to Remove Mugshots From Google

How to Remove Mugshots From Google

What would happen if a potential girlfriend, employer or family member were to come across your mugshot online? Mugshots from years ago are resurfacing on websites and databases, harming the personal lives of millions of people. Even if those charges were dropped or dismissed, mugshots can eliminate employment opportunities, relationships and cause you personal harm.

This is a reality for thousands of people around the Web. Criminal records from as far back as 1999 are now publicly accessible in many states, leaving your mugshot completely visible to users searching your name. This can happen to anyone with a mugshot or a criminal record, even minor offenses, especially now that anyone can access your mugshots or criminal records with a Freedom of Information Act request.

Most people aren’t comfortable with this information floating around freely online, but you can’t just petition Google to de-list your information. It may be difficult or next to impossible for you to find anyone responsible for posting your mugshot, especially if the content was generated by an anonymous user. If you’re feeling confused or frustrated, unable to remove your criminal records from the Internet, read on.

EraseMugshots.com Mugshot Removal Service was designed with you in mind. Since early 2012, we’ve been utilizing our skills in search marketing to protect the reputation of individuals who have been on the receiving end of bad luck or unfortunate circumstances. We specialize in removing harmful content from the Web, and we can do the same thing for mugshots.

 

Removing a Mugshot from Google

Google doesn’t offer a removal service that you can use to take something down or petition for removal. They recommend you contact the owner of the site, but that can be tricky. Technically if you owned the copyright of the image you would send a Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown notice to the webmaster of the mugshot site, but these sites do not accept DMCA removal notices, because the picture is owned by the police department or city/county that took the picture. In addition, site owners who run these mugshot sites tend to use private hosting that masks their identity and makes them difficult to find. Even if they list a contact form, it’s little more than decoration. They aren’t likely to respond to you, even if you make legal threats.

Sites like Mugshots.com host vast databases of criminal records and there is little recourse the average person has to defend himself. The number of states that legally allow mugshots online is also growing. If you live in Florida, for instance, your records from as far back as 1999 might be freely available online for employers and potential business partners to find online. Same with anyone living in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, New Jersey or a whole host of others across the United States.

There are over 300 arrest publications online and we offer a removal solution for all of them.

How to Remove Online Mugshots off Google

A number of recommendations have been released by Google. The first suggestion is to actually contact the owner of the website on which you have seen your mugshot and ask them to remove it. However, this is generally impossible, because it is highly likely that they will deny your request, or even ignore it. Furthermore, most websites that post mugshots don’t have easy to use contact forms, which means you have to find out who their hosting company is and pass a message on through them.

It is also possible to run a WHOIS check on the website in order to find out who owns it. However, if the website uses a private domain registration, this search will actually come up blank.
