NEW YORK, Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Unfortunately, the reality is that arrest records are public, which means that anyone is able to get these records by putting in a Freedom of Information request. But there is a difference between that and having your mugshot plastered all over the internet. This is why you may need the services EraseMugshots.com that can get to work on removing the online copies of your mugshots and arrest records.
It is important to understand what EraseMugshots.com can and cannot do. While it is possible to have arrest records and mugshots removed from the internet, they cannot be removed from the courthouse filing cabinet. After all, this is public information and anyone can go to the government records information depot or to the courthouse and request a copy. However, Google or the internet as a whole, is not a court house, which means the mugshots can be removed from there.
How to Get Your Mugshot Deleted of Google Search
A number of recommendations have been released by Google. The first suggestion is to actually contact the owner of the website on which you have seen your mugshot and ask them to remove it. However, this is generally impossible, because it is highly likely that they will deny your request, or even ignore it. Furthermore, most websites that post mugshots don't have easy to use contact forms, which means you have to find out who their hosting company is and pass a message on through them.
It is also possible to run a WHOIS check on the website in order to find out who owns it. However, if the website uses a private domain registration, this search will actually come up blank. Tracking down the actual owner is nearly impossible.EraseMugshots.com has spent years researching and contacting these website owner's.
So, with Google's solutions being nearly impossible to achieve, it would be better to actually enlist the services EraseMugshots.com which specializes in mugshots and arrest records removal. They have an excellent track record of actually getting the job done and do so quickly. They will also go beyond Google and check the other search engines as well, just in case those who are interested were to delve a little bit deeper.
In 2013, a number of new laws came into effect across a range of states. These laws were agreed upon in order to protect people who have been falsely arrested. Essentially, it means that their records are expunged and their mugshots are removed. However, these new laws often only apply to dismissed cases and otherwise expunged records.
