MILWAUKEE, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- Two Milwaukee police officers pleaded no contest Monday to disorderly conduct for their roles in illegal strip searchers, court records said.
Jeffrey Dollhopf and Brian Kozelek are expected to resign from the police department, agreeing to resign as a condition of their pleas, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
Attorney Jonathan Safran, who represents the unidentified victim, said the officers' resignations are important so that a "blue wall of silence doesn't continue."
Dollhopf was charged with three felony counts of misconduct, false imprisonment and conducting an illegal body search and cavity search. Kozelek was charged with similar counts. The two officers were accused of being present when illegal cavity searches took place.
Two other police officers, Michael Vagnini and Jacob Knight, have been prosecuted for illegal strip searches. They were both sentenced to prison, Vagnini for 26 months and Knight for 20 days.
