Supreme Court OKs Jailhouse Strip Searches After Challenge
After a challenge from a New Jersey man, a split Supreme Court has ruled that jailhouse strip searches are okay, even for minor offenses.
FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern reports from Washington:
The 5-4 ruling puts security ahead of privacy, the Court saying jails can strip search inmates regardless of why the inmates are locked up. A New Jersey man, arrested during a traffic stop for an unpaid fine, was strip searched at two county jails.
Justice Anthony Kennedy, in the majority opinion, writes courts must defer to the judgement of corrections officials if inmates are in general population. Justice Stephen Breyer, in a dissent, writes those arrested for minor offenses should not be subjected to serious personal privacy invasions.
