Pursuant to both California and federal law, there are extensive protections for media publication of public record information, including arrest records and mug shots. Arrest records and mug shots that are “newsworthy matters of which the public has the right to be informed” are protected speech and may be published without risk of legal ramifications. (See, e.g., Coverstone v. Davies (1952) 38 Cal.2d 315, 323; Kapellas v. Kofman (1969) 1 Cal. 3d 20, 38.) As the Elk Grove Laguna News posts information regarding recent local crimes and arrests for the use of Elk Grove residents, these records are clearly newsworthy to local residents who have a right to be performed of crime occurring locally. Arrestees and suspect’s privacy rights are not violated by “prompt and accurate public reporting of the facts and circumstances of his arrest.” (Loder v. Mun. Ct.(1976) 17 Cal. 3d 859, 865, 553 P.2d 624, 628.)
Mugshots and arrest records are considered public domain pursuant to the California Public Record Act Section 6254(f). While there is no legal obligation that we remove the mugshots and identifying information upon request, we do so as a courtesy to those involved.
