PHOENIX (AP) — Defense lawyers asked a judge to prohibit the U.S. Marshals Service from releasing a mug shot of the suspect in the shooting of an Arizona congresswoman and 18 other victims.

A mug shot of Loughner was publicly released by the Pima County Sheriff's Office two days after his arrest.

Thursday's request by Loughner's attorneys didn't specify whether the mug shot they are trying to keep from being released is a different image.

In any case, Loughner's lawyers say the Marshals Service intends on releasing a mug shot to an unspecified party in response to a public records request.

Defense lawyers say releasing a mug shot would invade Loughner's privacy rights while not serving any legitimate public interests.
