New Solution for How to Remove Mugshots from Google With InternetReputation.com

InternetReputation.com an online reputation management and Internet privacy firm announces a new solution for removing online mugshot records from the Internet.

DENVER, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- InternetReputation.com an online reputation management and Internet privacy firm announces a new solution for removing online mugshot records from the Internet.

Arrests.org is the latest in a long line of mugshot gallery sites that scour public records for images and make them available for all to see. The damage these sites can cause is incalculable, and traditionally, it's been extremely hard to remove photographs from these sites once they have appeared. Now, InternetReputation.com is proud to announce a new guarantee for their customers, ensuring that photos will be removed from the site within 24 hours of a request from a client.

"We're extremely pleased to offer this new service to our clients," says a company representative. "This site seems to be exploding in recent months, and thousands of new images go up each and every day. We want to ensure that our clients are protected, should they find that their images are included on this distasteful website."

Arrests.org currently operates in multiple states, including California, New Mexico, Arizona, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee and both Carolinas. The group also plans to spread into other states, including Oregon.

"Anytime a state publishes mugshots online, the company can swipe those photographs and place them on their own databases. The photographs are considered part of the public record, and since they are proof of an event that actually happened, an arrest, they're not considered libelous."

Proving libel or defamation often means providing that the incident in question is somehow false. Since mugshots stem from an event that took place, an arrest, and Arrests.org is quick to point out that the images constitute only a record of an arrest and not a conviction, the company is operating within the confines of the law. Unfortunate people who have tried to sue to have their images removed have bumped right up against this law, and their cases have been thrown out.

"We've monitored the site for a significant period of time, and we've found that the contact button rarely allows people photographed to talk to a real person. Often, clicking that button just brings people to a blank page," says an InternetReputation.com representative. "We've found that many users just write comments about their innocence underneath their photographs, just hoping people will read their comments and listen to their stories."

One such user, arrested in Alabama, attempted this tactic and wrote: "This web site sucks. I was never convicted of anything nor was I committing a crime and now employers look up my name and see this. It really sucks." It's hard to know if this comment will help amend the damage this woman seems to be facing due to her inclusion on this site.

The solution provided by InternetReputation.com allows users to fill out a simple form, describing where their images are located and what the outcome of the arrest was, and the company sets to work to remove the images within 24 hours for a small fee. Copies of the photographs are also removed, and any existing links used by search engines are broken and removed.

"This is a complete solution that allows our clients to relax and know that all copies of the photographs are gone and all of the damage they have endured has been amended, once and for all," says a company representative. "We're really pleased to provide this product to the public."
