Simply for completeness' sake, what percentage, if there is one, of the time is contraband actually found this way?
This situation is so horrifying as to boggle the mind. Better physical security to prevent someone from somehow getting stuff out of their crotch or backside and handing it to the prisoner would seem to be in order to make this abuse even less justifiable.
Security is important but this is sexual abuse absent real, arguable suspicion someone might do this, i.e. seasrchw arrant time.
When did prisons get redesigned so as to permit physical contact between visitors and convicts anyway? Very silly idea since some people will smuggle in drugs etc given the chance.
There is no need for virtue if there is no temptation possible.
