It is a matter of public record and needs to be petitioned with the courts in order to be removed. Even if you happen to win, which is not very common, there are many other sites that may have already picked up on the photo. There are many sites that will post mugshots for entertainment purposes that can’t be easily removed. You can spend time in court getting the mugshot removed from public records but you won’t be able to have them removed from these other sites.

The only way to prevent this from happening for sure is to not get arrested in the first place.
