A second Texas State trooper has been suspended without pay for being involved in a roadside cavity search that subjected two women to humiliating searches of their genital regions.
The two troopers are now facing a lawsuit by the women, who claim they were searched unconstitutionally without probable cause. The Department of Public Safety (DPS) announced Thursday that State Trooper David Farrell has been suspended without pay effective Dec. 21, after Trooper Kelley Helleson was suspended without pay on Dec. 19, pending the outcome of the investigation.
The two victims, 38-year-old Angel Dobbs and her niece, 24-year-old Ashley Dobbs, claim they were traumatized from what they consider a case of public sexual assault. After Farrell pulled them over on the side of a highway for throwing a cigarette butt out the car window, the trooper called his female colleague to search the women’s bodies and vehicle for marijuana.
No narcotics or contraband were ever found during the vehicle search
