PORTLAND, Maine — Several female defense attorneys are upset with a new policy at the Cumberland County Jail that requires them to remove their underwire bras before they can meet with their clients.

The Portland Press Herald reported that the women were told the policy was instituted because the bras have been setting off the jail's metal detector.

"It's absolutely outrageous," said attorney Amy Fairfield, who learned of the policy when she went to the jail Sept. 10.
