    What is Mugshots.com?

    Mugshots.com is a "Google for Mugshots". The website is a search engine for Official Law Enforcement records, specifically booking photographs, mugshots. Originally collected and distributed by Law Enforcement agencies, Booking records are considered and legally recognized as public records, in the public domain. Mugshots.com republishes these Official Records in their original form ("as is") under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, the freedom to publish true and factual information. Our intent is to provide a legitimate and useful service for both the private and public sectors.

    How do I unpublish a mugshot from Mugshots.com?


    While Mugshots.com is perfectly within its rights to publish Official Records, protected by the First Amendment to the U.S constitution, we've made the ethical decision to accommodate a number of situations where a case has been concluded. Those situations are specific and limited to the following:

    Hahahaha one of the more entertaining posts in a while.


    Why do you want it removed? His name is already public and in the press, so he needs a sexy brooding picture, one that makes him look hard, to get in the chicks that love a hardened guy. Especially if he's done something like pistol whipping someone.

    His mugshot, if he remembered not to shave that day and where a string vest could be the making of him. There are many women, out there and waiting with whips, ready to give him the thrill of his life.


    I say, sit back and let him enjoy it.

    hi, it is not illegal but it is unethical to post mugshot on websites for earning money of any individual whether the individual is convicted or not, and whether he is adult or minor. These posted mugshots are doing nothing just damaging the lives of victims.
