Woman suing police over unwarranted strip searchMikey 7 comments
Fifteen months ago forty one year old Hope Steffey endured a sickening horror. Her cousin called the police for help to report an assault, saying Steffey had been assaulted by another cousin. When a Deputy arrived he asked for some identification, and Steffey accidentally handed over her dead sisters licence, which she carries around as a memento. When she realised her error and asked for it back the Deputy said "shut up about your dead sister".
Steffey was arrested and the rest will shock you. She ended up spending the night in jail herself but not before being strip searched and assaulted herself.
Steffey was never asked to remove her clothes but was forced to the ground, hand cuffed and left lying in the cell naked for 6 hours. During her ordeal she suffered sever bruising, a bulged disc and a cracked tooth, not to mention the mental scaring she will carry for the rest of her life.
The assault was filmed. Be warned: The following video is not pleasant.
