A judge ruled Friday that prosecutors have sufficient probable cause to go forward with a case against four Milwaukee police officers charged with conducting illegal strip and rectal searches of suspects.
Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Jeffrey Wagner made his decision at the preliminary examination after about three hours of testimony from Milwaukee police Detective Justin Carloni, who recapped testimony that nine victims gave at a secret John Doe proceedings that led to the charges, filed last month.
The complaint lays out in graphic detail how the primary suspect, Officer Michael Vagnini, conducted searches of men's anal and scrotal areas, often inserting his fingers into their rectums. Vagnini acknowledged performing one of the searches. At least one suspect said Vagnini planted drugs on him.
