Two former MPD officers ordered to pay fines in illegal strip search case
MILWAUKEE -- Former Milwaukee Police Officers Jeffrey Dollhopf and Brian Kozelek were each ordered to pay $300 and perform community service as part of a plea deal in the illegal strip search case.
Both former officers witnessed illegal strip searches by former officer Michael Vagnini. They failed to report illegal procedures like forcing a man to defecate in a box inside a police station. Court documents also say they witnessed Vagnini perform unauthorized body cavity searches on people he suspected of possessing illegal drugs.
Vagnini is serving a two year prison sentence after pleading no contest earlier this year.
