I have recently relocated and have been having a terrible time getting a job. I googled myself to see what potential employers may be seeing and found a mugshot of myself from over ten years ago. The arrest came from a domestic dispute and I was held for a few hours and not charged. Mugshots.com listed I had a bond of $850.00 which is not true. I have contacted them and made them aware that I was a victim of domestic violence and was not charged. I have not heard back.
I have come across a few blogs of people who are encountering similar difficulties with with these types of websites mentioning that a class action should be started but no links or information concerning if one has been started. I would like any information regarding starting one.
Mugshots.com is so inept that they have listed Amy Fisher as killing Joey Buttafuco's wife. It was well publicized that Amy Fischer shot Mary Jo Buttafuco in the head and she lived.
It's not uncommon for the police to mistakenly arrest someone. Now these mistakes will be viewed as convictions. This is the worst violation of due process of law on a grand scale in the history of our justice department and the victims of police officers having a bad day, mistaken arrests, false reports made by an abusive partner and mistaken identity will continue to be victimized.
