WHAT IS A MUGSHOT?

A mugshot is a booking photograph taken during investigation. A mugshot isn't an accusation nor an admission of guilt. Regardless of the final case disposition, the arrest (or other incident with the law) has happened and a booking photograph was taken. This is true and factual and this is what a mugshot represents, all mugshots are 100% public record and received from law enforcement agencies in the public domain. A mugshot does not represent a case resolution, guilty plea, or not guilty plea.



DOES OFFENDERDATA.COM PUBLISH RECORDS ON PEOPLE WHO HAVE RECENTLY BEEN ARRESTED?

Your arrest data will never be reappear on OffenderData.com unless you are arrested again.



WHY SHOULD I HAVE MY ARREST DATA REMOVED FROM OFFENDERDATA.COM

You should do so to avoid your arrest data from being copied from our site and posted other websites which we have no control over, some other websites do not give you a record removal option and can keep your arrest data online forever. Arrest data is also frequently copied from OffenderData.com frequently and we have no way of preventing this.



IS EVERYONE LISTED ON OFFENDERDATA.COM GUILTY OF A CRIME?

No. All subjects are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. For the latest case status, contact the appropriate court circuit clerk or originating law enforcement agency for case status update.



I WISH TO REMOVE MY ARREST DATA FROM YOUR SITE BUT THERE IS NO RECORD REMOVAL BUTTON OR OPTION ON THE ARREST RECORD PAGE.

If there is no Record Removal button this means that OffenderData.com will never remove the record and it's a permanent record. If there is a permanent record that you wish to have removed please contact us and we'll explain why we will not remove the record.



MY RELATIVE IS LISTED ON YOUR WEBSITE. CAN I PAY FOR HIS RECORD REMOVAL?

CAN I USE SOMEBODY ELSE'S CREDIT CARD TO PAY FOR MY RECORD REMOVAL?

You can use somebody else's credit card only if you have the cardholder's permission. Anytime a credit transaction is received and the cardholder's name does not match the name on the record to be removed then we flag the transaction, we will place the removal request on hold until we contact the credit card holder to confirm that you do in fact have permission to use their credit card. If we cannot make contact with the credit card holder within 24 hours we will cancel the record request and return the funds to the credit card used. Additionally, we will consider this to be a fraudulent transaction and make the offender's record(s) permanent and non removable in the future.



OK, I PAID FOR MY RECORD(S) TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFENDERDATA.COM, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

You will receive a payment confirmation email and payment receipt within 24 hours, the email will confirm that your payment was received and that the arrest data removal process from OffenderData.com and our social media sites has been completed.



AFTER I REQUEST THE RECORD TO BE REMOVED HOW LONG DOES IT ACTUALLY TAKE FOR THE DATA TO BE ACTUALLY BE REMOVED?

The record(s) will be permanently removed from OffenderData.com within 24 hours from the time that you make your payment. OffenderData.com then immediately sends link removal requests to Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines. It can take anywhere from 1 to 3 days to be completely removed from the cached search engine results. We guarantee that the OffenderData.com arrest data will be 100% removed and will never reappear unless you are arrested again. OffenderData.com uses a 3 step removal verification process to insure that your data has been removed from our website and search engines, we also take steps to insure that your arrest data doesn't accidentally reappear in the future. The only possible way for your arrest data to reappear on OffenderData.com is if you were to get arrested again or failed to appear in court for the same case.



I PAID FOR THE RECORD DATA REMOVAL AND THEN DISPUTED YOUR CHARGES WITH MY CREDIT CARD COMPANY.

That was a very big mistake. OffenderData.com only offers one removal opportunity to remove an offender's record in our database. Our database will automatically repost the disputed data within 24 hours from notification of the disputed charges. Once the data is reposted it is flagged and automatically becomes an archived record and there will no longer be a removal option by anyone for this specific record.

If you have any credit transaction concerns or issues then we ask that you contact us first by email so that we can assist you in resolving your issue. Contacting your bank or credit card company first will only void your transaction and cause the data to be immediately restored online without ever having a future removal option.

OffenderData.com has partnered with EraseMugshots.com, InternetReputation.com and CleanSearch.net. These are the only reputation management companies that can assist you with your arrest record removal on OffenderData.com.

OffenderData.com is in no way affiliated with the above reputation management companies, these are well known reputable companies that can and can provide removal options for a magnitude of publications. Any other reputation management company or individual who claims that they can remove your arrest data from OffenderData.com is either lying to you or is seriously misinformed.
