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:
Juvenile Records (under eighteen at time of arrest)
The mugshot of my brother who is a minor is published at mugshots.com. Is it illegal or legal? Please help.
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.
