This will protect anybody having a similar name. Somebody with the same name as me (no a relative) was recently arrested in a prostitution sting and everybody kept calling my family. If the mugshot had been published, it would have prevented a lot of those calls and allowed us to say "look at the mugshot" to anybody who did call.

If you go to the riverside county sheriff website and go to the press release section it has the pictures of those arrested. On a side note i understand this is a crime but think it would be better to publish mugshots of those arrested for dui rather then soliciting. Yeah they post the pictures but i feel having this charge is embaressing enough for future job interviews and backround checks. And no i would never get a hooker but think there is more things to do with tax money such as dui check points every friday and saturday. Guy in palmdale killed a 16 year old sleeping just last night.

If you want to pay for sex, buy a ticket to Miley's concert. By the way, the PE used to be the news media of choice, but the Valley News is doing a much better job and has come a long way from when it used to consider a news story was the opening of a Stater Bros.
