Was Lindsay Lohan Strip Searched Before Entering Jail? Inquiring Legal Motion Wants To Know
A lawyer in a lawsuit over strip searches at the women's county jail facilities has filed a motion to determine if Lindsay Lohan received special treatment in the form of being able to skip the invasive search that all female inmates must endure.
A request has been filed to order Lohan to be deposed in the suit over the searches at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood. Attorney Colleen Flynn wants to know if the 24-year-old star was subject to a full-nude search, including a possible visual body cavity probe, in the parking lot outside the jail.
All female inmates are apparently subject to the parking lot ritual on their way into the facility.
The suit claims that the searches violate the inmates' Fourth Amendment guarantee against unlawful searches and seizures and are not necessary for security reasons, as jail officials have argued.
Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said "it seems like exploitation" to target Lohan instead of 60,000 other inmates. Otherwise he had no comment.
