Plea deals reached in illegal Milwaukee strip search case

by

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Two Milwaukee police officers struck a plea deal Monday morning, just before they were scheduled to go on trial for not stopping illegal strip-searches. 

Jeff Dollhopf and Brian Kozelek both pleaded no contest to reduced charges of being parties to disorderly conduct. 

Prosecutors recommend that both officers get fines, and that Dollhopf be required to perform community service. 

Both are also expected to resign. 

Dollhopf and Kozelek were accused of watching while former officer Michael Vagnini illegally strip-searched drug suspects -- and looking into some suspects' cavities. 

Over a dozen suspects have filed lawsuits in the matter. 

Vagnini is serving a 26-month prison term.
