Mugshot Publishers (813) 421-8334

There are several major third-party websites that scrape and publish content online in regard to personal information, court records, arrest data, booking information, crime blotter stories, and general information that can be considered public record, they include:

  • Mugshots.zone
  • Arrests.org

Regional Websites and Multi-Site Operators

Some websites scrape information from specific geographical locations, regions, or specific states. These websites will generally only rank for people who are searching in the location for which these websites scrape personal information or arrest records. This means that if a searcher is not geo-located by IP or GPS on a mobile device in that particular area the negative information may not show up online or be visible to searchers who are outside of the area.

Crime Blotter Websites (813) 421-8334

Crime blotter websites try to publish stories about information that can be sensationalized and are typical or tabloids that are focused on crime. These websites focus on crimes that involve high-profile individuals, exotic vehicles, or unusual circumstances. Most criminal activity is not interesting enough to make crime blotter sites, but some sites like Boca News Now will include most criminal stories that take place inside of the South Florida area. The Montgomery Police Reporter is another website that focuses on criminal activity that takes place around the Conroe Texas area. There are also random blogs that publish crime stories related to their areas.

Local New Story

These are the most difficult records to remove or suppress. Most of the time if the local news decides to write about the incident that took place involving an alleged crime or arrest you are at the mercy of the editor. Sometimes editors are empathetic to the individuals who are depicted in their stories when they are no convicted of a crime, other times you will be completely ignored. Lastly, some editors will make an edit to the existing story leaving the negative content online.

Crime Specific Websites (813) 421-8334

Some websites focus on specific crimes or register domain names that are specific to certain crimes. Generally, it would take more effort in order to filter out certain types of arrest records so most likely you will see individuals who have been arrested for all types of crimes on these websites regardless of their title or perceived interest. Some examples of crime-specific websites are drunkdrivers.org and the domestic violence registry.

Sister Sites

These websites are operated by the same individuals and generally will have similar design elements or common text that is shared between the websites. They may also share other digital footprints such as DNS information, CDN providers, or the same IPs. Examples of sister sites would include mugshotssarasota and tbcrimes both of these websites are visually the same except for regional differences although the Tampa Bay area is directly north of Sarasota County.

Municipality, Law Enforcement, or Sheriff Websites (813) 421-8334

Mugshots published on municipality websites run by local sheriffs and police departments cannot be erased by any mugshot removal service. Any company telling you that this is a possibility is lying. Your only option for content removal would be suppression of the arrest record being published. Some municipalities use New World Systems software powered by Tyler Technologies to run inmate search databases. If your image is posted on one of these websites I would advise contacting the law enforcement agency that posted the image in order to see if they have a retention policy in which an inmate record is stored on their database for a certain period of time. Generally, these timeframes range from 30 – 90 days in order to balance the public need to know vs an individual’s right to privacy. Below is an example of the KOOL database, which is the Kentucky online offender lookup tool. This is used to display inmates currently in the custody of the Kentucky Department of corrections.

Factors That Can Effect Removal

Removing mugshots from Google is a pretty straightforward concept but there are many variables that go into the removal of such content. First, you need to understand the mindset of someone who chooses to parade around individuals online for personal monetary gains when there are so many ways to earn money online. Some websites and even removal companies hide their domain information. Some websites lay out a clear removal policy with links, other sites have no information. Some websites are dormant and become zombie sites.

Case Disposition (813) 421-8334

Depending on the outcome of your criminal proceeding you will reach a disposition in your case where an outcome is decided by a jury, a judge, or possibly negotiations between your lawyer and the prosecution or a public defender and the district attorney.

Dismissed, Dropped, Nolle Prosecuti

Basically, the state has decided not to move forward with prosecution.

Acquitted

You were exonerated of your charges.

No Contest

You do not admit guilt nor do you say you are innocent. Generally, a judge is more lenient in cases where the defendant chooses this option which is common for minor traffic offenses.

Sealed, No Record

The resolution of your case has been non-disclosed by the courts.

Expunged

Your case was sealed based upon the laws of the state the charges were brought in.

Pending

If your case is still working its way to a resolution then you may be in a pending status. This is after an arrest but before the court reaches a final disposition or resolution for the charges or alleged criminal activity.

Status

Depending on the website, they remove an image if a person is of a certain status. The statuses listed below are the most common.

Minor or Juvenile (813) 421-8334

Some mugshot websites have scaped the records of people that are juveniles or minors when they were arrested and booked into a facility. If that is the case the website may remove the image and Google certainly will. Check out more information on how to remove content from Google.

Documentation

If you can provide certain documentation and are comfortable doing so some websites will remove arrest records with court documentation regarding the disposition of your case. If you decide to go this route be sure to delete personally identifiable information listed on any of the paperwork you submit. YOu never know who is looking at the documentation submitted and you do not want to place yourself at risk of identity theft.

Certified Letter

Some Mugshot Removal Laws written by states recently require that the person requesting the booking information be removed send a certified letter with a return receipt and tracking. This will of course be needed for proof in the event that a website does not comply with the law and remove the arrest information that is published online.

Zombie Websites

Zombie websites are websites that are no longer being maintained for whatever reason. Sometimes the websites face litigation and shut down. Website operators like Paul Grant get doxxed and decide that they no longer want to risk their personal safety by publishing the arrest records of people getting booked into jail. Some operators like Jason Steen stop operating their websites because they do not rank well and do not become profitable. Other website operators shut down their sites and relaunch under new URLs. Mugshots.zone seemed to mysteriously appear after BailbondsHQ, Rapsheetz, and Rapsheets all went offline.

What To Avoid

You want to avoid using a removal company that accepts kickbacks, partners with, or advertises directly with websites that are publishing images online.
