DENVER, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- In the United States, 1 in every 100,000 inhabitants is arrested, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. After an arrest, people visit the police station, where they're photographed and otherwise "booked." Often, these photographs pop up on MugshotsOnline.com and BustedMugshots.com. It's alarming to people who are arrested. Having a mugshot removed from online databases can often times be a difficult and stressful process.
InternetReputation.com can help. The company is now offering a guaranteed record removal from both of these sites.
MugshotsOnline.com: Difficult to Fight Alone
MugshotsOnline.com is a free service that allows users to view mugshots from all across the country, and by clicking on the photographs, users can open up a new window with a variety of sharing options. With one click of the mouse, they can share the photograph via Twitter, Facebook, Digg and email.
"This is, in part, why people should take immediate action when they have a mugshot on one of these sites," says an InternetReputation.com official. "When photos can so quickly be shared, they can quickly go viral and the damage to reputations can be intense. For example, a man who looked pretty handsome in his mugshot became part of a meme that's currently trending on quickmeme.com. It happens all of the time, and MugshotsOnline.com makes that sort of thing really easy."
MugshotsOnline.com is also dangerous, as the site provides no way for users to remove their own mugshots.
BustedMugshots.com: Paperwork Required
This website does provide a free record removal option for people who have been acquitted of their crimes or otherwise proven not guilty. Experts suggest that about 90 to 95 percent of people who are charged of a crime plea down to a lesser crime, but many of these people are found guilty of at least something. As a result, these people wouldn't be eligible for a free record removal, and if they were, they would need a significant amount of paperwork to prove that they qualify. Some people would find it difficult or impossible to come up with that paperwork.
"Many people who work with us were charged with a very minor crime, like neglecting a seatbelt or failing to appear in court," says an InternetReputation.com expert. "These people are guilty and were charged accordingly, but they're certainly not a menace to society. Unfortunately, they're treated that way because they can't get their arrests removed from BustedMugshots.com. We are here to help people arrested for a large scale of different offenses."
A New Solution
InternetReputation.com can remove records from both sites, and no proof of innocence is required. The photos and all of the arrest details are deleted, and the links in Google go dead, so the photos won't show up in searches. Then, programmers check the work in order to ensure that the photos are gone for good, and the client is notified when the process is complete. In some cases, the photos can be deleted in one business day. Visit www.internetreputation.com to find out more.
