TSA Official Not Charged with Sex Crime After Woman Claims Excessive Groping

A TSA official won’t be charged with a crime after a woman accused him of sexually assaulting her during a search at the Denver International Airport, RT.com reports.

Jamelyn Steenhoek, 39, complained in December that she was subjected to a “pretty invasive search” after being stopped at an airport checkpoint. She said the TSA officer cupped her crotch and groped her breasts.

“I felt sick to my stomach,” Steenhoek said to CBS Denver. “Those TSA agents were purposely abusive to me. And there isn’t any recourse. I still feel as if a crime was committed, and as an individual American I am powerless to do anything about it.”

The district attorney said there wasn’t enough evidence to prove sexual assault.

“We would be unable to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt,” said Lynn Kimbrough, spokeswoman for the local District Attorney’s Office.
