Im a 40yr old mom that was arrested over 20 years ago for a minor offense in seminole county, FL.  Mugshots.com is trying to extort $400.00 from me to unpublish my mugshot.  I have been married for 16 years and have 3 children. 

This website knows you will pay this so that there is no embarressment of friends, work or fellow church members finding out about it.  It seems as thou they are targeting certain people and not using the website for what it should be for, finding "real" criminals in your area that you need to be aware of.

I wouldn't do it.

"  Mugshots.com is trying to extort $400.00 from me to unpublish my mugshot.  "

   The reason they were able to publish your mugshot in the first place is because it is a public record.    That means any website can publish it.

" This website knows you will pay this so that there is no embarressment of friends, work or fellow church members finding out about it. "

     If you were to pay this website $400, there is no guarantee that your mugshot wouldn't suddenly pop up on another website (which would no doubt offer to remove it for a fee).  

  Since you cannot stop public records from being published, there's no point in paying someone to remove it from their website.  If the posts on this site are any indication, paying them may actually encourage these site owners to publish your mugshot on other sites.
