Should You Smile in A Mugshot?

The two women are not smiling in their mugshots, but I noticed that four of the men arrested for felony charges were smiling during their photo shoot at the Angelina County Jail in Lufkin, Texas.

According to Find Law every criminal defense lawyer they could find who has addressed people smiling in mugshots says the same thing. Do not smile.

Why Do People Still Smile In Mugshots When Arrested?

Reasons range from defiance, being drunk or high, suffering from mental illness, or because they think they were arrested for an absurd reason.

Most of the people smiling in these mugshot photos were arrested for controlled substances or assault.
