I have contacted mugshots.com several times, and they have removed my photo at least twice.  They now have posted my photo at the top of a search engine and will only remove it if I pay them $899. Even then, they cannot guarantee that it won't appear on one of their sister websites.  I was falsely arrested. I was falsely arrested for "Tresspassing" at an emergency room, while my husband lay unconcious and in need of his medical record being provided to the attending physician.  This was one of the most bizarre and unbelieveable nights of my life.  The arresting officer assaulted me and falsely arrested me.  This was proven and the charges were dropped.  My attorney is now working on  an expungement,  that is only necessary because of this website's harassing, extortion techniques.  I don't want to see other hard working, honest people extorted for thousands of dollars to remove damaging information from internet searches.

Welcome to the information age

AUTHOR: Lisa Garnette - (USA)

The operation mugshot sites are likely protected by the First Amendment, since the information contained on the site is public records. Mugshot sites will often charge to unpublish material from their site, and they have the right to do so. While this practice upsets those affected, it is again legal since the sites can make decisions as to which mugshots to include, and which to unpublish. Unpublishing is a major issue in the  publishing world and it doesn't start or end with one site or another (Google "Unpublish" or "Unpublishing"). This is simply the cost of living in the Information Age, when public information is readily available.

AUTHOR: lex talionis - (United States of America)

Mugshots.com is an LLC registered in the state of Deleware and has a registered agent to recieve service of process:
https://delecorp.delaware.gov/tin/controller
This is not exortion in a court of law but they are still liable under state civil laws like "use of personal likeness for commercial gain" or "economic damage  by use of personal likeness. The IRS would probably be interested also. They make thier money by "skiming" new information available under freedom of information laws and generating webtraffic to get money from google for advertising on thier site. They may also be persued for unautherized practice of law since the "venders" offer expungment service for like $3000. The relationship between venders and lawyer may be unautherized "feeder agreements" under bar ethics rules so you might even be able to go after the lawyers who do business with these people trying ever so hard to hide the money trail and identity of the man behind the curtain,
NOTE: The "approved venders" from the website can be sued as well (and should be)but also operate in anonymity be not disclosing any company information other than the name of the website. The transactions through paypal are somewhat anonynous at first but you should be able to subpoena the bank and routing information.
There is an attorney in SW Florida who claims represents the owner of the website in some capacity...hi Marc ; )~  : Marc Gary Epstein. Here is his profile from the florida bar website:
http://www.floridabar.org/names.nsf/0/C6C4B9EE28A58C6285256A830073C611?OpenDocument
The domain name is registered to a fake address with a dedicated number that is answered by a woman that claims to sell insurance. Follow up calls will show this is just a ruse.
Prior to reorganizing as Mugshots.com, LLC in Deleware, The website Mugshots.com appears to have been owned owned and operated by Moniker Privacy Services LLC, located 20 SW 27th Avenue, Ste 201, Pompano Beach, Florida 33069.  Phone number 954-984-8444.    Email:  [email protected] (This is according to other internet reports)
The manager of Moniker was listed as:  Domain Systems, Inc., which now appears to be desolved or inactive and they may also do business as SolutionsHome.com, Inc, and HitDomain.com, Inc. (Yes, moniker was sued for displaying underage porn...here are the court documents:
http://blogs.miaminewtimes.com/riptide/2011/04/bieyanka_moore_moniker_privacy_services.php
Hope this helps, go get em. And seriously, the operators of the site probably posted this question themselves. And FYI, they create bogus accounts to post misleading information on the internet. They found a clever way of making money but completely disregard hurting people and try to hide themselves from liability.Public information ceases to be protected when they harm other and use that information for comercial gain.

Back to the craphole you crawled out of

AUTHOR: Stop Star Nine Ventures - (USA)

Don't let this bozo lie to you.

"Related to defamation is public disclosure of private facts, which arises where one person reveals information that is not of public concern, and the release of which would offend a reasonable person. Unlike [with] libel, truth is not a defense for invasion of privacy."

These people try to come off as having the authority of law. This is not a business- it is a scam. Don't let them fool you in to believing it is anything more. They cower when lawsuits are mentioned and avoid the press.

I feel your pain but, arrest records are public records, whether you were found guilty or not (but you already knew that didn't you?). And no one owes to remove any public information once published, for fee or for free.
