I’ve been asked, “How do I get my mugshot removed?” You can make a request in writing to any website that depicts your mugshot. You must also send this as certified mail along with a copy of your identification to prove you are the person in the mugshot. After 10 days, if the mugshot is not removed, the website depicting your mugshot can be subject to civil penalties. This is under Statute 901.43. If there is a website that does not charge for the removal of your mugshot, you may never be able to remove it if they have no option to do so.
There is a more efficient way to clean up your record online and that starts with getting your case sealed or expunged. If you want to know more about how we can help you seal or expunge your case, give us a call at (561) 671-5995.
