MILWAUKEE (AP) — Two Milwaukee police officers accused of failing to intervene when an officer conducted illegal strip and body-cavity searches have reached a plea deal.

Suspended officers Jeffrey Dollhopf and Brian Kozelek pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct as a party to a crime Monday. Prosecutors recommended the men receive fines and Dollhopf be ordered to do community service as part of his sentence.

Both also are expected to resign from the Milwaukee Police Department.

Court documents described both officers as watching while another officer, Michael Vagnini, strip-searched suspects. More than a dozen victims have file lawsuits.

Dollhopf was originally charged with felony misconduct in public office and being party to the crime of illegal cavity search. Kozelek was initially charged with illegal strip search and misconduct in office.
