Arrest.org can cause serious issues. From the moment that you are arrested, the information is entered into a criminal database that is available to the public. This means that anybody can access the information online in order to find out if you have a criminal record. The American legal system provides that arrest records are public property and that a record needs to be kept of every person who has been arrested and fingerprinted.
An arrest record can have a negative impact on many aspects of your life including your ability to rent a property, apply for a loan and even get a job. People are quick to make negative character judgements based purely on information or mugshots that they have viewed online.
The ease of access to this information can have long-lasting consequences that can keep you paying for past mistakes, especially if the arrest never actually resulted in a conviction. So what can you do to reduce the negative impact that an arrest or criminal record has had or will have in the future?
How To Restore Your Reputation Online and Remove Arrest.org Content
First, run a quick online search to identify if and where the information is available.
Simply having your name published as a party to a criminal case can be harmful to your reputation. Most people are at a loss as to what they can do about this. It can be even more stressful if your name appears in connection with an arrest or criminal conviction. Few people are aware that there are a number of solutions available to repair their online reputation.
However, these solutions are largely dependent on a number of factors such as the nature of the crime, the time that has elapsed since the crime was committed, whether an arrest resulted in a conviction and media coverage of the event. Every individual case will therefore need to be treated differently in order to assess whether or not a record or a mugshot can be removed or suppressed. A mugshot removal service may be required.
Suppression And/Or Removal Of Content from Arrest.org
When expunging a record is not an option, you can still have the online information pertaining to your arrest or conviction suppressed or removed. This can however be a complicated process and a costly affair. News media sites and other websites displaying arrest information are not often willing to remove the information. It may be necessary to hire a lawyer to pressure them into removing or suppressing the information.
Content suppression does not remove the information pertaining to an arrest or criminal record but rather makes the information less visible. The information still exists online but is not the first result that is returned when you search your name. This is also not a long-term solution and the information is likely to resurface at the top of a results page after a period of time. This means that you will need to employ the services of a content suppression expert on an ongoing basis.
Arrest.org Removal of Content
Removing mugshots, an arrest or criminal record is a far better and permanent solution than content suppression.
