Mother suing school for strip-searching her daughter over a cell phone

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WKRC) -- A female student was reportedly strip-searched by a school nurse at Milton Hershey Private School in Pennsylvania over a cell phone.

The student's mother, Trina Howze claims the school said because it is a private school, her daughter does not have constitutional rights. The student and Howze are now suing the school, student home affiliate, Michael Randolph, and student home supervisors, Kenneth and Tysha Wilson.

Howze claims a nurse at the school told her daughter to take off her shirt and then "touched [the girl] all over her body, including her chest, feeling for a smartphone." The lawsuit adds, "After
the strip search, [the daughter] feeling violated, was visibly upset, crying and shaken."

No cell phone was ever found.

The lawsuit claims that Tysha Wilson "advised Howze that [her daughter] does not have constitutional rights because she is in a private school and that the school is backed up by the Derry County Police Department."

Lisa Scullin, the school's vice president for communications, claims there are policies to protect the rights of students and the school.

"We take their privacy rights very seriously," she said.
