Video: Troopers Indicted for Roadside Cavity Search

VIDEO: Roadside Cavity Search In Texas

A Dallas County grand jury has indicted two Texas Department of Public Safety troopers on criminal charges stemming from a roadside cavity search of two north Texas women in July.

Trooper Kelly Helleson has been charged with two counts of official oppression and two counts of sexual assault. She searched Angel and Ashley Dobbs at the request of Trooper David Farrell, who has been charged with two counts of official oppression and two counts of sexual assault. Farrell also allegedly stole a bottle of hydrocodone from the women's car while searching for marijuana, reports CBS DFW.

Helleson, who was recorded on dash cam searching the women vaginally and anally, was fired in January. Farrell was suspended.

The women filed a lawsuit in December, claiming the troopers conducted a non-consensual search of their vehicle. No drugs were found.

This is incredible. I don't know what's stronger, my contempt for the troopers actions or the compassion I have for these victims; and yes I called them victims.

And we wonder why the US Supreme Court hands down some of the ruling that hinders us!

Any more of this and citizens will start resisting LEO's more than they already do.

Violating them like that is bad enough, but they did it in PUBLIC!!! And then for Farrell to (allegedly) steal the Hydrocodone from the vehicle, was very wrong. He should have been terminated as well.

These two are just plain stupid and should never have been hired in the first place. I take it that agency doesnt do psych evals on their recruits. These two are deeply disturbed. The female cop gets fired and the male cop is suspended, what's wrong with this picture!

All Texas Peace Officers must undergo a psychological exam before a state Peace Officer license can be issued. However, there are stupid officers in every agency. Unfortunately, their actions do affect all of us that are still working. Two idiots without a doubt. From a 32 yr. Texas LEO.
