Can a male officer pat down a female minor?
My friend and I got caught shoplifting and the security guard made sure to point out he had two female minors. When the officer arrived he made me stand up and turn around. He then put his hands in my back pockets lingering a few moments longer than necessary. He then proceeded to run his hands along my bra line and between my breasts. Then, he grabbed the front of my bra and pulled it forward. Then, he made me take off my shoes and lift up my pant legs. After this he searched my backpack and my binders. After he was done he searched my friend. He didn't make her take off her shoes or lift up her pant legs and I don't remember him searching her.pockets. he also didn't search her backpack. I get that what we did was illegal, but is what he did legal? We are both thirteen year old females.
