Frequently Asked Questions

Is a mugshot public domain?

Your mug shot is a public record and someone scraped information from the arresting agency’s website and republished it on their website in order to get clicks and advertising revenue. An arrest record that is generated while being booked into a facility is considered public information almost anywhere in the United States. This unfortunately allows people to become branded as criminals without any context into the situation.

Is it legal to post mugshots online?

Currently, it is legal to post an arrest record or mugshot on the internet. Many states have begun to enact laws against charging to remove the image. This still leaves websites with the ability to publish the image and not charge a fee for removal or not offer any kind of removal at all. Most websites claim to have at least some type of removal option or the ability to have the arrest record updated. This new option allows most website operators to skate around the law which currently has not seen any meaningful enforcement action. This is why it is important to build up your web persona online.

How long does a mugshot stay online?

A mugshot can remain online indefinitely. If you take no action to remove or suppress a mugshot it can appear at the top of search results in all major search engines. If people search your name and click on the image and interact with the page containing your arrest record and information about your case that search result can persist indefinitely. That is why it is important to attack mugshots immediately in search engines with a team that is experienced in search engine optimization and reputation engineering.

Why are some mugshots not online?
