Roadside body cavity search explained

Posted: Updated:

A Dallas County Grand Jury indicted two state troopers in connection with a roadside body cavity search.

Trooper David Farrell pulled over a woman and her niece in Irving last summer.

He suspected there were illegal drugs in the car which turned out to be not true.

He called for a female trooper to search the two women.

That trooper, Kelley Helleson, is now charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of official oppression.

Trooper Farrell was indicted on one count of theft a bottle of prescription painkillers that reportedly went missing during the search.

Attorney and former police officer Pete Schulte explains his perspective on the issue.
