Sixth Circuit Urges Law Enforcement & Corrections Officers to Avoid Strip Searching Arrestees in View of Others Absent a Compelling Reason

In 2009, Tynisa Williams was arrested for driving with a suspended license in Cleveland, Ohio.  Her license had been suspended for failure to pay a traffic ticket.  Ms. Williams made arrangements to pay her fine, but was still processed into detention in the City of Cleveland House of Correction, a local jail facility.  Ms. Williams was ordered to strip, shower, and submit to a visual body cavity search and delousing in front of corrections officers and other inmates.  During the delousing, officers sprayed delousing solution onto Ms. Williams and into a body cavity. 

Mr. Shawn Bealer was subject to similar treatment at the City of Cleveland House of Correction in 2008 and 2009 for driving with a license which had been suspended due to failure to pay a fine.  Mr. Bealer further alleged that corrections officers permitted other detainees not only to observe his delousing, but that other detainees were actually allowed to give him the “hose treatment” by spraying his body and genitals with delousing solution.
