Overview Edit

The National Conference of State Legislatures maintains a list of pending and enacted statutes relating to the regulation or prohibition of posting mug shots online:

This legislation limits or prohibits reposting booking or arrest photographs (mug shots) obtained from law enforcement websites on commercial websites, some of which charge a fee to have the photographs removed. Some sites will remove photos at no cost for those who can show that charges were dropped or that they were found not guilty; others charge a fee. Once on the web, however, the photographs can be copied and redistributed by other sites, and individuals who had charges dropped or were found not guilty can find it difficult to repair their online reputations.
