A  federal judge has declared unclothed screenings for juvenile inmates unconstitutional.
The ruling stemmed from a situation at the Breathitt Regional Juvenile Detention Center.

It was there that two teenagers were required to strip during intake.

The boys parents sued the guards, the center, the director, and other officials.
Jail policy originally required inmates to be totally unclothed during the process in order to be screened for illness, injury, abuse, or neglect, but officials changed the rules shortly after the lawsuit was filed.
