The alleged owners of Mugshots.com might find their own mugshots on the site soon.
This includes domain name investor Sahar Sarid.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced charges of extortion, money laundering, and identity theft against the four alleged owners yesterday. Sarid was arrested in Florida and his mugshot is available here.
According to the Attorney General, Mugshots.com posts mugshots of people who are arrested. If they want the mugshot removed they have to pay a fee, even if they were never charged or were arrested in error.
Sarid is based in Florida and the state of California wants to extradite him to California to face the charges.
