Women Sue Over Highway Strip Search

Two South Texas women have sued after an alleged strip search along a highway in plain view of other travelers.

The federal civil rights lawsuit was filed June 8 by Brittah Williams and Jessica Mascorro of Refugio over Dec. 31, 2009, incident.

The lawsuit names Refugio County, Sheriff Robert Bolcik, a male deputy and a female deputy.

Bolcik didn't immediately comment. County Judge Rene Mascorro and County Auditor Diana Moss declined comment Tuesday.

The Victoria Advocate reports the lawsuit said Mascorro was driving when the car was pulled over, Bolcik approached and said he had information that a man Mascorro dated was smuggling drugs. The lawsuit said no drugs were found in the vehicle.

Some acquaintances later told the two women of driving by and witnessing the strip search.
