After being arrested for allegedly driving drunk, a year-old mother of three was taken to an Illinois jail, where she was held down and forcibly stripped naked in front of male officers, according to recently obtained videos. Now, after more than a year of fighting for her freedom, Harrison is still facing five to seven years in prison for a variety of charges, including aggravated battery, driving under the influence, resisting a peace officer, and improper lane usage. She says the encounter not only impacted her psyche—she has recurring nightmares—but also caused her to lose custody of her kids.

The first video, obtained from the jail in April through a Freedom of Information Act request, shows security footage of three corrections officers, two males and one female, restraining Harrison by kneeling on her neck and back and holding down her legs. They eventually tase her as they remove her sweater and handcuffs from her, according to police. A second video , which was released last month, takes place hours later.
The year-old was attacked by four men who smashed down a kitchen door at Linhope Close, Heaton Mersey. A terrified woman was pinned to a bed and stripped of her jewellery after robbers burst into her home. The gang grabbed the woman and took her into the bedroom where she was pinned down on a bed before jewellery was snatched from her arm. Police have appealed for witnesses and describe the robbers as four white males wearing black balaclavas and dark clothes. They fled over a fence in the direction of the nearby Tesco store. The woman was left shaken and with grazed arms.
