Shon Douctre Arrest and Mugshot information
Attorney Shon Douctre is a licensed Florida Attorney. Prior to learning useful and cheaper methods for Mugshot removal, Mr. Douctre founded his own criminal defense firm called Private Counsel, LLC, a private law office, with sections dedicated to DUI and CRIMINAL DEFENSE. Defending persons charged with DUIs has long been Mr. Douctre’s passion and he is fondly called “the Duke of DUI” among peers, the DHSMV, and many of his clients.
In defending so many good people over the years since 2002, Mugshot postings has become an increasing concern for his clients and for the general public at large. No one seems to care about a Mugshot until it happens to them! However, no one is immune from being arrested and YOU could be next.
Over the years more and more private websites are popping up to capitalize on the misfortune of people who have been arrested; wrongfully or otherwise. Once upon a time, a person just needed an expungement/sealment attorney to repair their record, now they need a “Mugshot removal attorney” too! Times have certainly changed.
This Mugshot posting epidemic just seems to be getting worse each year for a person arrested for anything at all. Coming face to face with an ever growing problem, Attorney Shon Douctre set out to offer a solution to his clients and the general public to combat this growing national problem.
This was one of the reasons why MUGSHOTREMOVALATTORNEY.COM was founded. In addition, since no other lawyer was really stepping forward to inform people in such a comprehensive way with this issue, Mr. Douctre set out to be the first and pave the way. Attorney Douctre also owns the sister site MUGSHOTREMOVALLAWYER.COM too. Both websites are jointly dedicated to one thing – Mugshot removal and giving the public as much useful Mugshot removal information as possible from a lawyer’s prospective.
Being the first real attorney to take charge of this situation in this manner makes Shon Douctre a unique Mugshot removal attorney, if you will, in Florida.

News: Mugshot Removal Scams
Mugshot websites claim they are protected by the “First Amendment” in that the information contained on the site is originally gained from public records. This is true….to an extent. A person’s mugshot is only on the jail’s website for the brief time while the person is in the facility. As well, not all jails have websites that post pictures of their current inmates. Those jails that do have websites are the foundation and start of the problem. So, the longer a persons sits in jail, the greater the likelihood for a person’s image to be copied (or scraped) from the jail’s website and pasted into the various private companies databases/sites for profit.
For example, under Florida DUI law, a person must sit in jail for at least eight hours after arrest (drunk or not) prior to being released, even if they have their bond posted immediately. For other charges, the duration a person sits in jail can be much shorter. The key is to post bond/bail as soon as possible to limit the chances your mugshot gets leaked out to the internet. Once your mugshot gets copied to any new media website or private mugshot site, chaos ensues. Furthermore, the longer you do not take action to delete the mugshot, the greater the probability your image gets shared from site to site through the “mugshot site community” and among stalkers.
Privately owned mugshot websites will usually then charge you to “unpublish” fee to simply delete your material from their website. This can get very expensive, so Attorney Douctre sought to find a more inexpensive approach. While presently there are no laws to prevent this in the State of Florida, something needs to be done. Attorney Douctre is of the position that legislation needs to be enacted and/or case law made to protect the victims of Mugshot posting and removal sites. This needs to be done to prevent Mugshot sites from keeping a person’s image (and charges) after the company is expressly told to take it down and delete it by the person or his/her legal representative.
While this “method” of getting money from people upsets those affected, it is still legal in most states because the sites make decisions as to which mugshots to include and which to unpublish. Unpublishing is another major problem because even when the mugshot is “unpublished,” Google (and other search engines like Bing, Yahoo, etc.) may still have the page link or image indexed for days later. Consequently, until the mugshot information becomes stale, the page link is cached and still pops up upon a search of the Mugshot victim’s name. The only difference is that the mugshot image does not appear once deleted from the page by the webmaster. Thus, even paying a site to remove your mugshot, may not delete all information about the arrest as fast as one may like. More needs to be done after the mugshot is removed to remove the dead link pages.
With the ever growing number of predator Mugshot sites and crazy cyberstalkers out there, time is of the essence. Mr. Douctre has the knowledge to represent you in this subject area. Your first phone call upon release from jail should be to a Mugshot Arrest Attorney - specifically Attorney Shon Douctre.
An even bigger scam is that some of the internet removal companies are committing fraud. While many are legit businesses (call for a list), many are the actual owners of the mugshot sites themselves! Thus, a person is paying these companies thousands of dollars to delete a picture from their very on site that they jointly own. These fraudulent companies make multiple mugshot posting sites and then make a fake ”Internet” mugshot removal company/site that advertises a monthly or flat fee to remove Mugshots and restore ones internet reputation. Sometimes both the Mugshot Poster and the Mugshot Remover are one in the same. You will never know. Furthermore, sometimes they take down a mugshot and then create a new site under a different name and populate it will all their other sites images to “double dip” and get the victim to pay a second time! This is clearly a fraud on the public and is actionable in not only civil court but perhaps under the criminal RICO statutes too. This type of internet scam is deplorable and needs to be stopped.
