Remember that time you had a little too much vodka during a college party, and you were hauled off to the police station for public nudity? Chances are, it’s a night you’d rather forget about. However, mugshot website administrators might want you to remember every single sweaty, nauseating detail. In fact, they might even have photographs of the evening that they’re willing to wave in front of your face. Of course, they’ll preserve your memory loss for a small fee, and they might even accept PayPal payments for their time and trouble.
But should you pay?
And what does it mean if the site has no such removal options?
These are questions many people are asking themselves as the mugshot industry continues to grow and spread, and the number of sites that aren’t publicizing any removal options is also growing larger. It’s a disturbing trend, but thankfully, there are some things you can do to fight back.
