MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Plea agreements could be in the works for two Milwaukee police officers accused of watching and not stopping other officers make illegal strip searches.
Jeffrey Dollhopf and Brian Kozelek were both due in court Tuesday on pre-trial issues -- but their appearances were delayed until Thursday.
Prosecutor Kent Lovern said the cases were both nearing resolution. Dollhopf and Kozelek are now scheduled for trials next week for misconduct in office and charges related to illegal strip searches.
Both officers have asked that their charges be dropped, saying prosecutors were too vague in their allegations.
Officer Jacob Knight was recently sentenced to 20 days in jail after a plea deal in a similar case.
Former officer Michael Vagnini was given 26 months in prison for leading the strip searches, and entering suspects' body cavities to look for evidence.
