Concerning mugshots of me online...

Asked over 1 year ago - Aiken, SC

I was arrested for the first and only time in November of 2012; of course, my "mugshot" is all over the internet. Also, if you do a Google search of my name plus my city/state, it brings up my arrest info. Well, I was put on Pre-Trial Intervention and successfully completed this. I will soon have that record expunged. What I need to know is whether it's possible to have my mugshots/arrest information removed, without charge, from Google, etc.? There's almost no point in paying for an expungement when anyone can Google my name and see my past, especially a potential employer. Any advice?
