Leaf-Chronicle puts an end to daily gallery of arrest mugshots

In 2011, The Leaf-Chronicle began collecting and publishing, in an easy-to-access format, booking mugshots from the Montgomery County Jail. It was part of a national trend among journalism websites, and it built a lot of excitement as another way to drive online readership and engagement.

These mugshots have been available to the public on the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office website since 2005. But The Leaf-Chronicle was able to republish them in a manner that would make them easier to click through, packaging them with other crime news in a one-stop location at TheLeafChronicle.com. 

It was a service to readers we were glad to provide, and it proved quite popular.

Six years is a lifetime in digital years, and during that time, a lot has changed:

Daughter of Manhattan ballet couple arrested for burglary – Daily Mail

The daughter of a Manhattan ballet power couple has been arrested for theft after she was caught on surveillance camera, wearing all black, with an accomplice near the site of one of a string of burglaries in an affluent Maine town.

Talicia Martins, 21, and conspirator Jacob Flanagan, 20, are accused of breaking into three local businesses in Camden, Maine, between July 30 and 31, stealing more than $1,000.

Martins is the daughter of former New York City Ballet principal dancer Darci Kistler and the company’s current ballet Master-in-Chief Peter Martins.

She was arrested Thursday and charged with burglary and felony theft after authorities reviewed surveillance footage from the street near one of the burglaries, which revealed Martins and Flanagan – both dressed in dark clothes – walking nearby.  

The two were caught on surveillance camera on the second night of the burglaries, on July 31

50 Cent’s Connecticut mansion was swarmed with cops Tuesday after a burglar forced his way onto the 17 acre property.

The break-in left the 41-year-old rapper more amused than upset, however, sharing online that he didn’t even know he still owned the multi-million dollar home.

“You’ve got a young lady who was arrested on the statement of a 17-year-old kid with no corroborating evidence. This isn’t a guilty person sitting there like they just got caught,” Nassour told the TV station. “When everything’s fleshed out it won’t be as it appears.”

Mugshots and arrest information on Sebastian Daily.

SEBASTIAN, Florida – If you are arrested in Indian River County, chances are your mugshot might be published on Sebastian Daily.

There are a few exceptions in Sebastian, Fellsmere, and Vero Beach. Unlike other media outlets that publish all mugshots on a daily basis, we are selective on what we believe is newsworthy. We also publish this information for community awareness.

The articles we publish are based on the original affidavit provided by the arresting officer and witnesses. The mugshot and affidavit were made public by the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office. We retrieve records from the county each day. Please don’t blame our media outlet for your arrest or mugshot.

All persons arrested are charged, but are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. There are some arrests we do not report on such as single count marijuana/cannabis and DUI.

We try not to report on domestic disputes, especially if children are involved. But, there are some cases when we do. For example, if the husband and wife are having a food fight.

The agencies we follow are

Daily Mail Cruelly Compared Woman’s Mugshot to a Zombie from Walking Dead

(Credit: Pixabay)

The Daily Mail should be ashamed of itself after comparing a woman to a zombie from the AMC television series, The Walking Dead. The woman, who appeared to have just one eye, was likened to a zombie by the Mail, making a mockery of journalism ethics and fairness and marking a new low for the Mail. The photo of the woman, and hook for the Mail‘s story, was a mugshot taken after she was arrested and charged with prostitution. But her arrest only served as a window for the Mail to exploit and mock her appearance.

The cruel Dec. 8 story, written by Emily Crane, was headlined. “Would you have sex with a zombie? One-eyed hooker who looks like an extra from the Walking Dead is arrested in grisly prostitution bust.”

iMediaEthics will not name the woman in question because we believe it is unfair to further link her to the insensitive Mail story, and the comparison suggested by it, as she already has been throughout the web. Thus, we will redact her name below. While the headline called it a “grisly prostitution bust,” there is no such grisly nature described in the article. Unless one
