The State Trooper Who Performed Roadside Cavity Search Was Suspended Yesterday

The Texas Department of Public Safety has been mostly quiet about the case of Angel and Ashley Dobbs, who were cavity searched by a state trooper during a July traffic stop. The agency released a statement late Tuesday saying only that the troopers' actions have been investigated and that the findings were passed along to a Dallas County District Attorney's office. The DA plans to take the information before a grand jury in January.

In the meantime Kelley Helleson, the trooper who performed the cavity search, has been suspended. DPS spokesman Tom Vinger told the Morning News last night that Helleson was placed on unpaid leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
