Does Mugshots.com has an obligation to unpublish expunged records / mugshots once served with expungement papers?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Miami, FL

On their unpublishing policy they say "courtesy". Courtesy or obligation?

    Answered . Agreed. Courtesy. However, I have found them to be reasonable in removing the booking photos of my clients who have had their records expunged or sealed. Generally, I can get them a copy of the Order Expunging the Record and the photo is removed within 48 hours, if not sooner.

    Answered . I agree that it is a courtesy. I have had mugshots removed after I have had my client's case expunged or sealed. However, a firm letter to the mugshot company stating the mugshot needs to come down based on the sealing or expungement of a record doesn't hurt. Good luck. If you have any questions, feel free to call me at (561) 414-8016.
