MILWAUKEE (AP) - Two suspended Milwaukee police officers are due in court on charges that they failed to intervene as fellow officers conducted illegal strip searches and body-cavity searches.
Jeffrey Dollhopf is charged with felony misconduct in public office and being party to the crime of illegal cavity search. Brian Kozelek is charged with illegal strip search and misconduct in office.
They're scheduled to make pre-trial appearances Tuesday morning. Their trials would begin next week.
Both men have sought to have the charges dropped. They say the counts are too vague to allow them to present proper defenses.
Similar charges have resulted in criminal penalties against two other officers. Michael Vagnini was sentenced to 26 months in prison and Jacob Knight was sentenced to 20 days in jail.
