Is it possible to remove arrest records from the internet? Yes, NetReputation has successfully removed thousands of criminal and arrest records from Internet sites like Google, Bing, or Yahoo.
Whether or not you have an arrest or conviction in your past, more and more individuals see their criminal record history exposed on search engine results across the web. Regardless of the outcome.
This has created an epidemic in the online world as individuals have nowhere to turn for help. Until now!
If you have an arrest record, like it or not, the information and case documents are public information. Meaning anyone who has access to the internet is able to access your personal information.
Many states have already begun to implement statutes and legislation to protect those affected by these publications. However we rarely see the courts side with the plaintiffs.
As long as there is no court order of removal, any website or search engine can distribute your criminal charges, even those dating back years ago. As long as the website doesn’t demand payment, it’s within its legal rights to distribute this type of content.

Some states such as California have stopped releasing the mugshot photos to the general public. However many of these arrest records mugshot websites continue to post arrest details without a photo.
The repercussions people face due to these posts can be very detrimental. And not only for their online reputation, but for both their personal and professional life too.
Criminal records or mugshots appearing on the first page of Google make it difficult for anyone to obtain a new job or get approved for a loan. Also, it becomes almost impossible to buy a new home, apply to college, or even try online dating.

We will let you form your own opinion, however we can all agree that payment for your removing your criminal case online is unethical.

Cases Dismissed, But Files Still Appearing On Search Engines Results!
Here we go, time for some fun stuff!
But before you start reading the following section, there are some things you must know. The most important one is that there is a grace period between when the initial arrest occurs, and when the judge finalizes your case. Whether you were innocent or guilty, or were eligible for criminal record expungement, your “crimes” are still public information.
A typical time frame till files are expunged or sealed, is about 6-12 months. During this interval, websites have the right to publish and/or distribute your arrest records across the Internet.
- Sealing of Court Records. When an arrested case is sealed in the eyes of the law, it is no longer considered public information. The information will remain on your record, however nobody is able to request any forms of documentation regarding those events.
- Expunged Records. Filing for expungement is taking it to the next level when compared to sealing court records. An expungement essentially erases any trace of your arrest from your criminal history and within the court/legal system.
