More Exposure for Aiken County Suspects
The Aiken County Detention Center's mugshots are looking a little different these days.
On Sunday, they released this mugshot of a shirtless Paul Smith Jr., who was busted by the sheriff's office for grand larceny. It's the first time we've seen the jail release a photo that exposes so much of a suspect.
Jail officials tell us their fingerprint machine and camera have been damaged, so they have resorted to taking pictures with a hand held digital camera, which may explain the change.
Meanwhile, Mr. Smith is getting a little more exposure than most suspects in the Aiken County facility. But he should be used to getting his mugshot taken. The 20-year-old Aiken man is a repeat offender who was arrested in North Augusta in 2007 for shoplifting.
