    California’s attorney general said Wednesday he has filed extortion and money laundering charges against owners of the website, accusing them of posting mugshot photos and then charging those pictured money to remove the the photos from the internet. ... The site posted mugshots taken from law enforcement websites even if the people who were arrested never had charges filed against them or later had them dropped. The mugshots can make it harder for them to get jobs and housing, Becerra said. The site would not remove the mugshots until a fee was paid to a secondary website called,...

    An Ohio man pleaded not guilty to chasing a family member with a hatchet in Toledo Municipal Court on Friday. Noel E. Dawson, Jr. was charged with assault and domestic violence, both first-degree misdemeanors. He was also charged with criminal damaging, a second-degree misdemeanor, as well as failure to disclose personal information, a fourth-degree misdemeanor. Municipal Court Judge Robert Christiansen set a $50,000 bond earlier this week. Dawson allegedly chased a family member with a hatchet, swinging it at him. He hit the man's truck instead. A large dent was left in the vehicle's hood. Police say Dawson refused to...
  • Texas Man Says He Was Choked for Smiling in Mugshot

    Christopher Johnson was arrested on July 29, 2015, on the suspicion that he was driving while intoxicated, the lawsuit filed Wednesday states. When he was posing for his mugshot, he was allegedly choked by two Harris County employees while being booked into the county jail because he was smiling for the photo. The lawsuit does not specify who the two employees were or what their jobs were. “It was a willful violation of his civil rights and civil liberties, he should have the right to smile,” Andre Evans, Johnson’s attorney, told ABC News Friday. Evans hopes to “send a message...

    After police began circulating his mugshot, they say Pugh himself sent them a different photo, with a caption that reads, "Here is a better photo that one is terrible." The department released the Pugh's self-selected photo on its Facebook page. Though police and potential tipsters may now have a more flattering photo of Pugh, he remains at large. "We thank him for being helpful, but now we would appreciate it if he would come speak to us at the LPD about his charges," the Lima Police Department wrote on its Facebook page.
  • Vintage Mugshot PHOTO … Circa 1924: Pep, “The Cat-Murdering Dog”

    1924: Pep, “The Cat-Murdering Dog” Pep "The Cat-Murdering Dog" was a black Labrador Retriever admitted to Eastern State Penitentiary on August 12, 1924. Prison folklore tells us that Pennsylvania Governor Gifford Pinchot used his executive powers to sentence Pep to Life Without Parole for killing his wife’s cherished cat. Prison records support this story: Pep’s inmate number (C-2559) is skipped in prison intake logs and inmate records. The Governor told a different story. He said Pep had been sent to Eastern to act as a mascot for the prisoners. He and the Warden, Herbert “Hard-Boiled” Smith, were friends. Pep was...

    Leadership: Texas Gov. Rick Perry smiled confidently for his mug shot, as if to signal he would prevail over politicized big government. In fact, that may resonate as a campaign theme for voters weary of the same abuses. Until now, the prevailing "narrative" was that a governor under indictment on two counts of "abuses of power" would be political toast. Because even if the charges were baseless, as these are, the mug shot and the screeching headlines would bring certain opprobrium. It certainly happened that way for now-exonerated House leader Tom DeLay, whose career was ruined by the same tactics...

    A Texas judge opted Monday not to issue an arrest warrant against Gov. Rick Perry, but the Republican still faces the unflattering prospect of being booked, fingerprinted and having his mug shot taken — and has assembled a team of high-powered attorneys to fight the two felony counts of abuse of power against him. "This is nothing more than banana republic politics," Tony Buzbee a Houston-based defense attorney who will head a cadre of four lawyers from Texas and Washington defending Perry, said at a news conference. A grand jury in Austin, a liberal bastion in otherwise largely conservative Texas,...

  • Scientists Reconstruct Faces From DNA Samples

    Sometime in the future, technicians will go over the scene of the crime. They’ll uncover some DNA evidence and take it to the lab. And when the cops need to get a picture of the suspect, they won’t have to ask eyewitnesses to give descriptions to a sketch artist – they’ll just ask the technicians to get a mugshot from the DNA. That, at least, is the potential of new research being published today in PLOS Genetics. In that paper, a team of scientists describe how they were able to produce crude 3D models of faces extrapolated from a person’s...
  • Genetic mugshot recreates faces from nothing but DNA

    A MURDER has been committed, and all the cops have to go on is a trace of DNA left at the scene. It doesn't match any profile in databases of known criminals, and the trail goes cold. But what if the police could issue a wanted poster based on a realistic "photofit" likeness built from that DNA? Not if, but when, claim researchers who have developed a method for determining how our genes influence facial shape. One day, the technique may even allow us to gaze into the faces of extinct human-like species that interbred with our own ancestors. It's...

    Authorities say Internet escort Amy Shoemaker and her friend, Thomas Hudgins, were hoping to repeat a previously successful armed robbery scheme: Shoemaker sets up a prostitution date and Hudgins robs the John. But their plans went to pot when they discovered their intended target was actually an undercover Gretna Police officer working a prostitution sting. "They didn't realize there was a police officer in the room and officers were outside conducting surveillance," said Gretna Police Chief Arthur Lawson. The date-turned-robbery-turned-bust occurred on July 11.Lawson said investigators were working an ongoing investigation into prostitution conducted via the Internet. They set up...

    She had been arrested for missing a court appearance that merely concerned a speeding ticket. So she called him into her office. Did she berate him for finding her picture? Did she plead that she was just a good person who made a mistake? Let Varner take up his story: "And she was like, 'You said I got arrested for DUI.' And I was like, 'I think you got arrested for DUI'." Miller was undeterred. She knew the law. So she reportedly asked a policeman to arrest Varner. You might be wondering what she asked the policeman to arrest him...
