Turner student claims she was strip searched
The girl went to the Buckingham Correctional Center in Dillwyn, Va. Peerman is the girlfriend of the girl's father and went with her to the prison. She was told to sign a consent form for the girl's strip-search even though the form can only be signed by a child's legal guardian, which she was not, according to the New York Post.
Peerman told the paper she and the girl had been circled by a Virginia Department of Corrections dog trained to sniff out contraband.
