GA Legislature Passes Internet Mugshot dot com law

Thursday, April 25, 2013

The Georgia Legislature passed a law prohibiting the publication of Mugshots on websites for commercial gain. Many websites that publish mugshots data mined from Sheriff's department websites have set up a system where they charge the arrested person $150 or more to remove their picture. The websites are very adept at optimizing their website so they rank hign in Google search results. This means that if you are arrested and photographed a simple Google search of your name will many times show your mugshot on the first page of search results. This has become quite a lucrative business. I have had potential clients that have told me that they have paid over $1000.00 removing mugshots from these commercial websites.  more
