Wayne County - A 46-year-old Canadian woman sued two unidentified female U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents in U.S. District Court in Detroit on Wednesday, saying one of them strip-searched and groped her without justification as the other one watched at the Ambassador Bridge last March.

Loretta Van Beek of Stratford, Ontario, who said she travels to the U.S. regularly to vacation in Georgia, said agents sent her to secondary inspection because she failed to declare raspberries.

She said agents questioned her during a two-hour session, then ordered her to strip. She said one agent aggressively groped her breasts and genital area for an extended period of time while the other watched. Then they photographed and fingerprinted her and sent her back to Canada, the suit said.

Her lawyer, S. Thomas Wienner of Rochester, said she was traumatized by the incident and wants to find out whether there are other victims.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said it couldn't comment on pending litigation.

Michigan MEAP overhaul wins kudos in Washington

Tuesday's decision by the state Board of Education to raise the standard for passing the Michigan Education Assessment Program and Michigan Merit Exam is getting support from U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

"I applaud Michigan for being honest with students on where they stand," he said in a statement.

Under the plan, the state will raise what are called cut scores -- the cutoff point for how well a student needs to perform to pass the standardized tests. The new plan will make the cutoff consistent with the skills students need for college and careers.

Michigan's cutoff has been based on whether students show a basic understanding of the material.

Quick hit

Sentencing: As expected, Brian Molloy, 38, the former co-treasurer of the Livonia City Soccer Club, was sentenced to two years of probation and restitution Wednesday in Wayne County Circuit Court. Maria Miller, spokeswoman for Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy, said the defendant paid the entire restitution amount of $87,000 before sentencing. In January, Molloy pleaded no contest to an embezzlement charge.
