Removal of Name/Photo From Publication
Justified Newspaper is often contacted in reference to withholding the names and/or images of individuals that have been arrested from publication.
Justified Newspaper has established a non-preferential policy of publishing images and information of all persons arrested as provided by each agency or booking facility during the reporting period prior to each edition. This information is obtained each week by Justified Newspaper within the provisions of Article 228 of the Louisiana Code of Criminal Procedure.
