Troopers Indicted After Roadside Cavity Search Of Two Women

DALLAS (CBS 11 NEWS) - CBS-11 has learned two state troopers involved in a controversial roadside cavity search of two North Texas women have been indicted on criminal charges by a Dallas County Grand Jury.

CBS-11 has learned that one of the troopers, Kelley Helleson, who left the courthouse after testifying Friday, is charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of official oppression.

She was seen on dashcam video searching the body cavities front and back of the two women along an exit ramp of the Bush Turnpike in Irving last summer.

The Texas Department of Public Safety fired Helleson.

CBS-11 has learned the other trooper in the case, David Farrell, is charged with theft after one of the women said her prescription bottle of the painkiller hydrocodone was missing after the search.

Farrell initially stopped the women after seeing them throw a cigarette out of their car window.

5. Now that is what I call GOOD NEWS!

How dare they preform a cavity search for no reason on a public highway! :grrr:
Officer Farrell should be fired too. He's the one who requested the cavity search.

7. Are you kidding? The woman officer didn't bother

To change her gloves?

Hope someone gets kicked off the force and thrown in jail for a while.

15. I was even more astounded

to see her check "the back" before she checked "the front" cavity. Even IF she had changed her gloves, she still could have passed a nasty infection. So glad she's been fired. That is a start.

These arre males who were raised to disrespect women and to use POWER to their advantage. They abused their oath to serve and protect and the failed in their manhood.

30. Gross behavior, of course, but more importantly

criminal behavior.

Both of these turds need to found guilty -- and the video of the crime negates any need for the word "alleged" here -- found guilty and registered permanently as sex offenders.

(I wonder, in passing, how many of their brother officers were as horrified as we regular citizens by this assault. That and how many just grinned and laughed about it, just like that little slug in Steubenville? I don't want to see the book thrown at these fools. I want the book slammed shut with both of them inside. Hard jail time and life forever after stigmatized as a sex offender. Both of them. She who probed and he who watched and acquiesced -- and stole the prescription pills.)

26. Thanks for posting,

although there is no way that I can watch that video. I am disgusted to the max just reading about it. My first feelings were, why did they do that right out in the open at the side of the road? Why not haul those women in to a private location if they were that confident that there was something to be found.

29. I'm not sure I would have complied on the side of the road

if you are not compelled to submit to a breathalyzer test, do you have to consent to an invasive finger on the side of the road? The whole incident just seems ridiculous.

31. Good point.

But I have been in northeast Texas, and those cops are really intimidating.....not sure if it would be a good idea to be in a private place with them, if you know what I mean.

You are right, though.....I would not have complied either.

18. Good to hear that this is happening back home

There are parts of the country where prosecution of such police abuse would be a matter of course, but in Texas, it doesn't happen very often. Maybe this is the start of something. DPD has a lot of good people in it. I know some of them. But it also has attracted rotten apples, as does most any PD at some point or other. It's the willingness to go after the dirty cops instead of sweeping their rotten behavior under the rug that makes one proud or ashamed of one's local constabulary. This may not make the Dallas PD the envy of the London bobbies, but it's a small step in the right direction.

24. Won't Ms. Helleson have to register as a "sexual offender" in the state of Texas?

And won't Mr. Farrell be sent to prison for a drug offense?

What was going through these folks' minds!

33. Since one cop stole prescription painkillers, I wonder

whether hunting for drugs for their own use might have been at least one goal of the stop and search.

35. Bust up and defund. Run this element the hell out and break the blue line.

Take away the pensions, the cars, the health plans, and cut those wages.

Fuck em, where was the solidarity as their brothers and sisters went down?
