And in Houston, Texas, prosecutors have dropped criminal charges against a pair of Harris County Sheriff’s deputies who are accused of conducting a roadside strip-search of 21-year-old Charnesia Corley, in an incident her lawyer calls “rape by cop.” Video of the June 2015 traffic stop released Monday shows a pair of deputies shoving Corley face down onto the pavement after pulling her over for allegedly running a stop sign. Corley says the officers removed her pants, threatened to break her legs, and penetrated her vagina without her consent as they searched for marijuana. Corley’s lawyer is calling for the appointment of a special prosecutor to reinvestigate the case.
