The Department of Public Safety says he remains suspended pending the outcome of its administrative investigation.

The troopers were searching for illegal drugs, but didn’t find any.

The women testified before the grand jury Friday, but declined comment.

Their attorney, Scott Palmer says he believes the troopers broke the law.

“There is no textbook that would mandate or authorize this type of search. We’ve said it before, and we will say it again, this is so outlandish and so outside the bounds of what police officers are allowed to do.”

The women filed a lawsuit against the troopers and the head of the Department of Public Safety.

Helleson’s attorney, Robert Baskett, says his client is not guilty and didn’t assault or fondle the women.

He says Helleson passed a polygraph test, and is in the process of appealing her firing.

The Department of Public Safety would not comment Friday on the indictments.
