This website published my picture from a previous charge, my name and a charge that they made up, and there is no physical address, so how can they be sued? For them to demand money for this to be taken down must be illegal. What can be done about it?

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.

AUTHOR: Phoenix - (United States of America)

Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) 

18 USC 1030 - Fraud and related activity in connection with computers

The US Law Enforcement Analysis Portal (Network) is designed by Forensic, Inc. LEAP users sign a contractual agreement with their agency, state and Forensic, Inc that each incident of misuse of the system the user must pay $50,000.00, the agency and state must each pay $100,000.00 to Forensic, Inc. Use of LEAP's is for official purposes only and each search must detail that official function. In addition to a secured database LEAP's uses VPN's for transport.

Government personnel steal government property mugshots means of identification -  (18 USC 1028A - Aggravated identity theft) from LEAP's to place on a public network (internet) owned by the Department of Commerce who contracted ICANN to coordinate. Case in point government personnel use private domains .com, .org, etc. The Department of Commerce who owns all domain names only recognizes .gov as a government domain and only government entities may register a . gov domain.

Birth records, marriage records, divorce records and death records are all public records.

18 USC 1584 - Sale into involuntary servitude Government personnel globally (world wide web) human traffic Americans who are held hostage by electronic means to be used for involuntary servitude.  The individual's daily private life is what promotes and makes money for websites that hold them against their will.

Case in point search engines (Google, Yahoo and msn\bing) do not have individual pages indexed for ebay. I.E. Ford vehicles sold on ebay have no individual page or even a group page, but ever stolen identity website has individual's page and if they use adsense they get high search ranking with search engines.

Bizarre Logic and Reasoning If kidnappers called the ransom amount the returning person fee would it bedazzle the system again? Further, if the kidnappers rationalized their acts with the same logic would the system be mystified by them? Reasoning, they had to go through the hassle of kidnapping someone hence they are entitled to the returning person fee (Ransom Money).

If blackmailers called the extortion amount the unpublish/reputation repair fee would it bedazzle the system? Further, if the blackmailers rationalized their acts with the same logic would the system by mystified be them? Reasoning, they had to go through the hassle of stealing government property, identity theft, stalking people, holding people to involuntary servitude, injuring their reputation, blackmailing them hence they are entitled to an unpublish/reputation repair fee (Extortion Money).
