Cop Sexually Assaults Woman, In Court, Then Arrests Her For Protesting - A woman was in court with her 2 year old daughter finalizing a divorce case when a court marshal took the 28 year old alone into a room to search her for drugs (an unwarranted search). She claims that during the search the Marshall touched her breasts, her butt and forced her to pull up her shirt. When she protested and asked if a female officer could perform the search she was arrested for “making false allegations against a police officer.” While she was getting arrested in court and pleading that she wasn’t lying the female judge turned her back and ignored what was going on. Apparently there is no such charge and only arrested her on those false premises because she accused him of sexual assault. The woman has since filed a complaint and the court Marshall was fired and is being investigated. The Marshall maintains his innocence. Watch the video below.
