Attorney General Scott Pruitt released an opinion Thursday saying mug photos taken by law enforcement agencies are open records.
Mug shots of people arrested by law enforcement officers must be released to the public when requested, according to Pruitt.
Pruitt issued an opinion based on a request by state Sen. Ron Justice,
R-Chickasha, and State Sen. Jim Halligan, R-Stillwater, asking if the photos are open record and whether they must be released in electronic format.
Pruitt said the answer to both questions is yes.
