My son was shot and killed immediately in a home invasion therefore was not arrested. My son had no prior criminal record, meaning no prior photo on public record. After the obituary was ran, the Jail Report used that photo. I read their guidelines and it specifically stated they legally can run an arrest record/mugshot because it is public record; but my son never had the chance to be arrested. I was given the copyright to his Senior High School photos, which is what I ran in the local newspaper. I am not denying the incident but I would not have ran the obituary photo if I would have known they were able to use it.This question was originally posted under general, I apologize but this is should not be under Wrongful Death. The question is in reference to the Jail Reports rights to run an obituary picture. I will repost this question in the correct category.
