When Florida A&M University professor Barton Christner walks the halls he feels as if there’s a shadow looming over his head. Recently, his mugshot began circulating among students in the School of Journalism. Christner is among thousands of Floridians trying to remove a digital tether that clouds his reputation as a father, professional and instructor. A Florida law passed in 2017 sought to crack down on the mugshot publishing industry but it hasn’t worked as intended.
