Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Thanks for choosing Just Answer.
Without knowing all the facts, it sounds like you were treated improperly. There may not be anything you can do over being arrested and booked by male officers, but making you stand naked where other prisoners can see you, making sexual remarks, and leaving you standing naked for over ten minutes is definitely wrong. I would contact a local attorney to discuss a potential case against the police for sexual harassment and cruel and unusual punishment. Find an attorney that offers free consultations, and they will be able to tell you within a few minutes if the case is worth pursuing.
Such treatment may be grounds for a civil suit, but will not have any bearing on the outcome of your criminal case.
I hope this information has been helpful. If you need further assistance please let me know.
