IN: Female CI doing a controlled buy is allegedly digitally penetrated by def looking for recorder, and he’s charged with rape

No search issue here; just a cautionary tale for police:

A female CI came in for a controlled buy on defendant. He feared she was wired and made her strip to her underwear, and she did. Then he told her to take her underwear off, and he placed his fingers in her vagina looking for a recorder, apparently. He scratched her vagina, and she bled. She reported it back to the police, and he was charged with rape on the CI. This appeal is a on a bail issue. Johnson v. State, 2018 Ind. App. LEXIS 443 (Nov. 29, 2018).*
