    I saw a picture of my mom when she was younger, unfortunately it was a mugshot at mugshots.com - I want it deleted. Can anybody help?

    If they've ignored normal requests then a letter from your lawyer should do the trick. Costly when you are in the Philippines, I imagine. You might need to determine a "maximum spend" before you contact the lawyers.

    If your mother was ok about the photo being taken then she's probably ok about it being "out there". Have you talked to her about it?

    I'm pretty sure they have no legal obligation to remove your mother's picture because it is public information. Most mugshots and criminal records are viewable online on county websites so I don't see how they are breaking any laws.

    Mugshots is not the original photo source anyways, once it becomes public records, anyone can list the photos...
    even if her photo is not on that site, it will still be listed else where, even on other criminal sites that pull photo feeds....

    I'm pretty sure you should post a link to the pic. Just saying.
