Is it possible to remove arrest records on the internet? Yes, NetReputation has successfully removed thousands of mugshots and criminal records from Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
Whether or not you have ever been convicted of an arrest, individuals are starting to see their mugshot and criminal history on websites 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, like it or not the information within your charges and case documents are public information. Meaning anyone with a connection to the internet is able to access your private information.
Many states are beginning to implement statues and legislation to protect those affected by these publications however we rarely see the courts side with the plaintiffs as the information posted (as long as the website does not demand payment) they are within their legal rights to distribute this type of content.

Some states such as California have stopped releasing the mugshot photos to the general public however these mugshot publication websites continue to post the arrest details without a photo.
The repercussions people face due to these posts can be detrimental to their life. Not for health reasons of course. However seeing a mugshot on the first page of Google may make it difficult to obtain a new job, get approved for a loan, buy a new home, applying to college or even try online dating.
Your reputation is your best advertisement and here at NetReputation, we make it our mission to make you look like an all-star online.
Since these websites do not disclose the legal outcome of any particular arrest, it is left up to the person viewing your arrest online to make the assumption of whether you were guilty or not.
Most people also feel that even if you were convicted of any allegations and have served your time that these publications can severely impact your well-being. Others believe these websites are doing the community around them a favor.
We will let you form your own opinion however we can both agree that payment for removal online is unethical. NetReputation was formed with the sole purpose of assisting individuals to rebuild and restore their online presence through high-quality and engaging content.
Finding Arrest Records
Mugshot publication websites such as BustedNewspaper make it extremely easy for any non-tech-savvy individuals to locate records on the internet. For example, once you reach the homepage for BustedNewspaper you are prompted with a search bar on the right side of the page.
The only thing left to do now is to type in your name or the name of any individual and nine times out of ten you will find their information.
Sites such as BustedNewspaper give those researching the following pieces of information:
- Name of arrestee
- Date of birth
- Address (yes that’s right, they give out your address to everyone!)
- Booking date
- Alleged charges or reason for the arrest

Our team here at NetReputation has managed to lower our mugshot removal timeframe down to roughly 3-4 days.
Once an individual’s information has been removed it typically takes Google, Bing, and Yahoo about one week to update their results to reflect any changes.
Now let’s dive into how you can work to remove arrest records online so you can finally take back control of your online reputation.
My Case Was Dismissed But Still Online! What Gives?!
Here we go, time for the fun stuff. Before you read the following section on how NetReputation can remove arrest records there are some things you should know.
The most important thing to know understand 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 had your charges dropped, sealed or expunged your arrest records are still public information. A typical expungement timeframe is about 6-12 months. During this time these websites are within their legal rights to publish and/or distribution your arrest records across the internet.
- Sealing of Court Records. When a case is sealed in the eyes of the law, it is no longer considered public information. The arrest information will remain on your record however nobody is able to request any forms of documentation regarding those events.
- Expunging Your 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.
