  Mugshots.com has tried to hide behind bologna of unpublishing.  I have filed an FTC complaint against Google and the Mugshot progeny (they keep growing in numbers like the plague).  I have retained attorney Joel Stempler (check him out at Avvo) to bring a class action and a pure discovery action against Google to reveal who these bottom-dwellers and where the hell do they live.  

What legitimate business operates in cyberspace.  Check out Chase Johnson, if that is his real name.  I asked him for an address and he said "do you want me killed."   The only way to stop these parasites is by suing them for injunctive relief (take down the sites) and secure money damages from them and Google.  Join the class action by contacting attorney Joel Stempler before the lawsuit is filed next month.

Just Mugshots

AUTHOR: notadouchelikeu - ()

 Same forum - just a different venue- Let's do this, everyone send letters to the Washington Justice Department. We are also filing ethics violations against all of the the attorney's in this case. I'm guessing they aren't supposed to be practicing anymore anyhow. We are going to post there names, addresses, phone numbers, kids names, where they work..wives..they make our life a living hell- well like you have stated- public informatio is out there and so we are going to use it. I'm happy that I have a Master's degree and am smarter than the d*uche bags that own these sites..time to beat you at your own game...good luck in your new world!!

mugshots.com

AUTHOR: blb - (United States of America)

I have asked mugshots.com to remove my information.  Chase Johnson refused. I was arrested in 2005, nolle prosequi, then found not at fault. This was a false arrest, and I sued and was awarded in civil court. I believe my information should be removed and not have to pay for this.  I would like to join the class action law suit in this matter.

Attorneys on Avvo have made the comments below. Would they have made these comments if it was them or their children on Mugshots.com? I don't think so!

"The mugshot is public information. Anyone could have looked it up as soon as the government publicized it. It could have been printed in the paper or broadcast on tv. A radio announcer could have described it."

"Mugshots are public records of the actions of the government. It is lawful everywhere in the U.S., so far as I know, to publish documents and photographs that are public records of the actions of the government. People are apoplectic about the existence of these mugshot sites but they are an unfortunately humiliating byproduct of open government and the First Amendment.
"
"When the police book you and take your photo after your arrest, thatphoto is a governmental document. We live in a democratic country where most governmental documents are not secret and anyone can obtain a copy. "

"Unfortunately, it is public record. There are services where you can pay for removal for a fee. There is not much you can do because it is public record and you were arrested."

"Sorry, but the pictures are public record and they can be posted online. We have had a half-dozen or more questions asking this very same question. The answer is the same and the answer is that this is totally legal. If you want to stop this you will have to change the law in your state. Until then, as long as the pictures are public record there is little you can do."

"it appears to be legal. One way to view it is via 1st Amendment protections that would apply to a newspaper or radio station. In our small community, every non-juvenile arrest goes to the 8:00 AM radio and in the newspapes. Some news stories include the mug shot."

"the website is within its rights to post the mugshot"

"MugShots.com and other mug shot display websites base their existence on the rule that mug shots are public, official records, and that a citizen does not have a state law privacy interest in them. Further, under the First Amendment,
most official, public records can be obtained with permission, third-party release, or proper request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), if they are not already publicly-available documents to begin with. 

If the official mug shot is part of an arrest record, the mug shot could beconsidered part of the public domain in some jurisdictions. Even if a mug shot is not officially considered part of an arrest record, it is generally a photographic record in the public domain and the laws of most jurisdictions allow one to request and obtain these types of records. 

Some states recognize a common law right to privacy, and the Appeals Courts aresplit on whether or not a citizen who is arrested (and of course, presumed innocent until proven guilty) would be entitled to demand that their mug shots be removed from websites if they are later acquitted. 

MugShots.com, in particular, offers a courtesy removal process in certain instances, although they vehemently protect these options as a mere courtesy, and not a legal requirement."

Who owns mugshots.com? Michael Robertson owns mugshots.com - 


Processing payments for organizations that are involved in questionable activity exposes companies like PayPal to serious legal problems, not to mention chargebacks.


Who owns mugshots.com? Michael Robertson owns mugshots.com - Criminal infringes name and likeness copyright for purposes of commercial advantage and private financial gain, 18 USC 2319 & 17 USC 506.


BOISE The Ada County sheriff says its own website is being used to extort money from people who have been arrested. Since 2003, the Ada County Sheriffs Office has been posting daily mugshots of those arrested on their website.  But, Sheriff Gary Raney says recently third party websites have been "scraping" the mugshot and names of those on their website and then placing the information on their own website. Scraping websites, like Boisemugshots.com, has thousands of mugshots of those arrested since early 2011.  The photos on Ada Countys website are deleted after five days. Boisemugshots.com provides a link to another site that removes the information from the Internet for $99. It's really a form of extortion, said Raney. This is something that really goes against the fundamentals of what I sense we should be putting that mugshot out there for. Raney says he is now considering taking down the website to protect those who have been arrested. There's really an injustice that happens to people, said Raney. Raney is also looking into increasing the security on the site to prevent other sites from taking information.
