    A Houston lawyer has released dash-cam video that appears to show a sheriff's deputy removing the pants of a handcuffed woman pinned to the ground to perform a body cavity search.

    Attorney Sam Cammack called Wednesday for an independent prosecutor to consider sexual assault and official oppression charges against three Harris County deputies.

    He's filed a federal lawsuit accusing the deputies if violating Charneshia Corley's constitutional rights during a 2015 traffic stop.

    Corley was charged with marijuana possession and resisting arrest. Those charges eventually were dropped.

    Warning: Video Contains Disturbing Imagery

    A woman suing Texas' Harris County Sheriff's Office over a roadside strip search says newly-released dash cam video will prove her case. The dash cam video was recorded two years ago, but Charnesia Corley said she still feels the pain of what happened that night.

    A grand jury later indicted two of the deputies on official oppression charges, but the Harris County district attorney's office decided not to prosecute.

    The video shows Corley on her stomach as a female deputy removes her pants and pushes her legs upward.
