Charneisha Corley, was handcuffed and told a female deputy that she didn’t have any underwear on.
The female deputy replied that it didn’t matter, pulled Corely’s pants down and then told her to bend over.
“I bent over and she proceeded to stick her fingers in me, and I popped up immediately and I told her, No! What are you doing? You can’t do that to me.”
The deplorable incident occurred during a traffic stop at around 10.30pm on June 20, 2015, Harris County. A male sheriff’s deputy pulled Corely over and searched her car after exclaiming he got a whiff of ganja.
After finding nothing, he called a female officer out to strip search and digitally probe Ms Corley, and in full view of the passing public at a Texaco gas station.
The incident which took place left Ms Corely wrought with so much distress, she instantly knew she was a victim of racial discrimination, and all because she was Black.
The deputy told her that she could do what she wanted because it was a narcotics search. After Ms Corley resisted, another female deputy was called to complete the unimaginable internal digital search.
Her attorney, Samuel Cammack III, said that what the deputies did in the middle of a parking lot was unconstitutional.
“It wasn’t a strip search, it was a manual cavity search.”
The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that it was unable to comment on the matter “until the completion of an ongoing internal affairs investigation, and pending the status of civil litigation.”
