elgin_jones_web_13.jpgMUGSHOT REMOVAL
The Legislature is considering a bill that would make it illegal for so-called “mugshot” websites to charge people to remove their booking photos from those sites. It targets companies that obtain such photos from law enforcement agencies and put them online along with the person’s name. The companies then charge arrestees to remove them. Under the proposed law, an individual could obtain a court order for removal of the photos and the website would be subject to a $1,000-a-day fine if it doesn’t comply. The bill could end up impacting the media, as well.

In coming months, the public will learn more about the devices that can track the locations of their cell phones and other devices and even intercept calls. The devices are, for all practical purposes, portable cellular towers. One example is StingRay, a patented device the size of a small toaster, that is used to intercept wireless communication, including phone conversations and text messages. An escalating fight is taking place in Tallahassee over such devices and their uses. There are concerns that the public may be able to purchase the devices because the new technology they use may not be covered by current laws or regulations.
