Illegal Searches in Milwaukee
Many states have laws requiring that officers carrying out a strip search must be of the same sex as the suspect, and that the location must be sufficiently private. Both men and women have successfully brought lawsuits against city police officers and state troopers for misconduct. If a strip search leaves you naked and humiliated in a jail cell, there is a chance the arresting officer has behaved inappropriately.
