Sparta Tn Mugshots !EXCLUSIVE!
Arrested in Nashville, Tennessee? One of the routine procedures in the booking process is taking a mug shot. Here in Nashville, your picture appears in a magazine called Busted where all your friends can see your picture. Some newspapers even publish the mug shots like The Expositor in Sparta, Tennessee. The New York Times ran a story on the the sordid business of posting mugshots for profit. I thought I would share a celebrity mugshot. I think they are different from Joe Citizen since they are in the public eye.

These websites, newspapers and magazines rush out and publish these mugshot photos hoping to make a buck. Some police departments even publish the mugshots. The Nashville Police Department has, at times, published the photos of those arrested in a prostitution sting. It is my opinion this is done in hopes that publicly shaming the individual will prevent the person from doing it again or sends a message to others that if they do it, they run risk of having picture posted for all to see.
News groups are fighting any laws that limit the restriction on mugshots. Why? Mugshots of a famous person sells papers and drives website traffic. They do not want to stop a mugshot from being released because doing so could mean losing money.
