The Jail Report is a crime-fighting publication established in June 2009 in the Augusta-Aiken area. The weekly newspaper includes mugshots and arrest information, wanted people, crime news, dumb crook stories and opinion columns.
Published by veteran journalist Greg Rickabaugh, The Jail Report is a family-run business which expanded in 2010 to the Greenville-Spartanburg region of South Carolina.
The paper’s motto is “Fighting crime through knowledge.” That simply means that this crime newspaper hopes to arm you with information that will help you make decisions to protect you, your family and your property. By knowing the names and faces of people accused of committing crimes in our neighborhoods, readers can make more informed decisions on the people they associate with and allow into their lives.
Not everyone will agree with the release of this public information to such a wide audience. They will argue that not everyone pictured is guilty.
The Jail Report makes it clear these are accusations only, and we believe the public benefits through the knowledge of those suspects who’ve been formally charged.
Suspects featured on our pages are innocent until proven guilty. All content on this website and in the print publication is deemed to be in the public domain. Information is compiled from public records for public consumption.
If someone published in these pages is found not guilty and wishes their verdict to be publicized, contact us through email at [email protected], or by phone at 803-487-3224. We also hope you make the same call to the sheriff’s office if your mugshot was placed on their website.
If you have a comment and want it published in an upcoming issue, we currently accept feedback by email at [email protected].
