We Remove Mugshotsworld.com Mugshots
Mugshotsworld.com purports to be the largest database of its kind. The company links to local mugshot databases in twenty-five U.S. states. The company receives its information from local law enforcement agencies and government agencies. Websites like mugshotsworld.com are the worst fear of everyone who does not want the general public to see their mugshot because it also takes advantage of social media to expand its reaches through Facebook and Twitter.
Why is my mugshot online?
Mugshots are public record. According to the Freedom of Information Act, public records must be made available to anyone who wants to access them. Those things that are considered matters of public record are general events that are documented by a government agency and are not considered confidential. Arrest records and mugshots are considered this type of information. Although this information has always been available to the general public, in the days before the internet revolution, the primary source of their publication was a local newspaper and public knowledge of matters of public record limited primarily to the length of the short term memories of those who read it. However, the internet has made it very easy to make public records easily accessible by anyone who can perform a basic search. Also unlike the days before the worldwide web, information is not thrown away a day or two after it’s read. It will stay on the internet until the person or entity who put it there removes it. This is why your mugshot is online, even if your arrest was years ago, your crime was minor, the charges were dropped, or you were ultimately acquitted.
More and more landlords, employers, prospective mates, even curious friends or family are using the internet to find out information about people. Although sites like mugshotsworld.com publish disclosures that that those people who are arrested are presumed innocent until proven guilty, many people make their own assumptions without taking time to learn all of the facts once they see a mugshot. This is why we exist and can help you. Unfortunately, sites like mugshotsworld.com only post mugshots. They do not provide update as to the status of the cases, so unless whoever sees your mugshot is willing to do a bit of extra research, there is no way for anyone viewing the site to know if you were found not guilty of a crime or if the case was against you was ultimately dismissed.
