Female woman strip search
In California, strip searches of inmates must be conducted in an area with privacy, and with no one of the opposite sex within sight. His office collected the stories of 16 women who said they experienced inappropriate strip searches inside County Jail No. About 90 percent of the women held there have yet to be convicted of a crime, Adachi said. At least 12 women reported that they were strip-searched in locations where they were visible to male deputies. Most of them asked to withhold their names from the formal complaint due to fear of retaliation. One woman described how she was asked to get naked, squat, cough and lift up both breasts within eyesight of several male guards and other female inmates.
