Strip Search Legislation Introduced

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - New legislation just introduced at the Capitol aims to allow strip searches for anyone put in jail for a misdemeanor without probable cause.

The bill,  which was introduced by Senator Rick Jones, would aim to create safer jails and reduce unnecessary lawsuits.

Jones and Oakland County sheriff Mike Bouchard say the only way to know if a jail is safe is to know that no one is bringing anything dangerous in.

But some think strip searching without suspicion is degrading and unnecessary.
