DENVER, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The mugshot website NewMexico.Arrests.org provides instant access to sensitive mugshot photographs and arrest records that originate within the state of New Mexico. Currently, the site only provides photographs taken within Santa Fe, but it's likely that other counties will be added in the future, and more documents will be available on the site for public consumption.
InternetReputation.com is proud to announce a new program that can provide immediate and permanent record removals from NewMexico.Arrests.org.
Understanding why this new service is so important means digging deep into the nature of crime in New Mexico, and the laws that might strip accused people of their rights to privacy within the state.
"According to records provided by the U.S. Department of Justice, violent crimes are relatively rare within the state of New Mexico. Property-related crimes such as vandalism and theft are far more common than crimes like murder or assault," says a representative from InternetReputation.com. "Arrests for these property crimes can be serious, of course, but most people agree that people who commit property crimes can learn from their mistakes and enter society once more. NewMexico.Arrests.org could keep people from doing that."
The site shows people in their prison garb, staring out of photographs with sullen faces and sad eyes. The impact of these photos can be felt on a visceral level.
"These people just look guilty, and they look like they might be guilty of really bad offenses," says an InternetReputation.com official. "The fact is, though, that charges get thrown out of court in New Mexico all of the time. Some people are innocent, but they can be condemned in the court of public opinion when they end up on this site."
No matter the damage the site can cause, however, the fact remains that New Mexico's laws stand firmly behind the website's developers.
"New Mexico's Inspection of Public Records Act allows the site to obtain any information about an arrest and use that information as it sees fit," says an InternetReputation.com official. "The site might be distasteful, but it is considered legal."
That's why InternetReputation.com sprung into action to develop a program that could remove records from NewMexico.Arrests.org. It might be the best or only way people can remove these damning records and move forward with their lives.
"We wanted to do something to help people get their lives back on track, and our program allows people to remove records from this site in mere minutes," says an InternetReputation.com representative. "It's real help, and we've received amazing feedback on our work thus far. We hope more people will sign up soon."
