MugShots.us.org is going to start including information about whether or not people featured in mugshots have been convicted of the crime they were charged with, the company said yesterday.
“One thing that many people don't understand is that mugshots are taken when people are arrested,” a MugShots.us.org spokesman said. “That does not mean the person has been convicted of or is even guilty of the crime they were charged with. We think it's important for people to know if the charges were dropped or if the person eventually ended up behind bars. That's only fair.”
MugShots.us.org said that they don't want to give people information that could lead them to a wrong conclusion when they find out that a mugshot exists for someone they know.
“Conviction and trial information is public information,” he said. “Therefore, it is simple for us to upload that data to our database and provide it to customers when they order their background check. We think that people will appreciate the extra information, because it puts the mugshot into context.”
The company realized that customers were confused after several called up customer service to ask how much time the people in their mugshots had spent in jail, he said.
“If even one person was confused by our service, it seemed to us like we should clarify the information,” he said. “We don't want to accidentally damage anyone's reputation.”
