Mugshots Gainesville is a handy little website that, in its own words, "records those taken into custody by local law enforcement". Local being Gainesville, Florida, in the good ol' US of A.

And why has this particular site been brought to our attention? Because of this gem:

mugshot thomas l edwards

Yes, Thomas Lewis Edwards hasn't just been booked six times - for offences ranging from hit-and-run, leaving the scene of a crash and refusing to submit to a DUI test - but he's also a criminal lawyer. Whose job it is to help the kind of people who end up on Mugshots Gainesville. And hence his law firm's ad is appearing on the website... right alongside his very own mugshot.

Oh, dear. Although we hasten to add: the website says it "makes no assumptions or representations about guilt or innocence... Information on this site should not be used to determine any person's actual criminal record."

It can, however, be used to have a jolly good laugh.
