Female Wisconsin Inmate Ordered To Do Jumping Jacks During Strip Search
[su_right_ad]Corrections officers say they believed she had hidden a bottle of urine in her vagina to falsify a drug test.
The plan was developed and put into action by Capt. Alfredo Garcia based on the accusation of another inmate, according to internal investigation documents released under the open records law. An officer and sergeant said Garcia told them to conduct a strip search of the inmate and order her to jump up and down while naked in hopes of dislodging the bottle they thought she might be hiding.
Another officer said she heard Garcia give the order, as well. But Garcia maintained the staff at the Robert E. Ellsworth Correctional Center near Union Grove, Wis., had misunderstood him.
He said he told staff to make the inmate “squat and cough and spring up real quick like a jumping jack and go back down to squat. I never told her to jump up and down.”
