The quickest way to get a mugshot taken down from a website is to contact the owner of the website with a polite message.
However, this may not often be possible and some owners don’t allow mugshots removed and if they do, they perform tricks to keep them live according to VelSEOity.com. However, here are some tips to help you remove them for free.
MugshotsOnline.com – Free Mugshot Removal
If your photo appears on MugshotsOnline.com’s website, you can easily get it removed. All you need to do is follow the “Remove This Mugshot” hyperlink, which should be directly below your photo. You will be taken to a form that requires you to enter some basic personal information. Once you fill out the form and click submit, your mugshot will be instantly removed from the website. You will not be required to submit any documentation or payment information.
Mugshots.com – No Cost Mugshot Removal
You can get your mugshot removed for free from Mugshots.com for any one of the following: no information, seal, identity theft, not-guilty, expungement, acquitted, dismissal, pardoned, exonerated, adjudication withheld, no file, and/or nolle prosequi.
All you need to do is find your mugshot ID from their website and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your documentation.
You can find out more information about the removal process here: https://mugshots.com/record-maintenance.html
If you get a non-favorable response to your removal request, they will still update your mugshot with case disposition information and your documentation if requested. However, we would advise against that. The reason being that any update to your mugshot could cause it to rank higher in image search results. Instead, we would advise you to take steps to bury the image in image search results for your name. Learn how to do that by CLICKING HERE.
Rapsheets.org – Free Mugshot Removal
You can get your arrest record page removed from Rapsheets.org (without Compensation) for the following reasons: sealed, expunged, death or non-disclosure.
A removal of your arrest record URL will be performed within ten days subject to the following conditions:
– You submit the following information by email or registered mail:
- Your full name.
- Valid ID, eg. Passport, Drivers License, etc.
- Disposition sheets/equivalent documents plus page URL of your arrest record.
Note that the website has a simple form you can fill out with that information at: https://www.rapsheets.org/opt-out/
Like the previous website, Rapsheets.org will update image information with details about your case disposition. Therefore, again, we would advise against this. Any update to the page URL containing your mugshot could cause your image to rank in a higher position. Instead, take steps to bury your image from search results for your full name and any well-known nicknames.
