Michael Vagnini Sentenced to 26 Months for Illegal Cavity Searches
In June of 2013, MPD officer Michael Vagnini was charged with having conducted illegal body cavity searches. Facing a total of four felonies and four misdemeanors, Vagnini pleaded no contest on all accounts. Regardless of the situation, law enforcement personnel are legally unauthorized to break arrestees’ and prisoners’ rights. Misconduct and abuse should not be tolerated, no matter the status of the accused. The offending officer Vagnini’s excessive force has denied multiple Milwaukee County citizens their dignity.
Since Vagnini’s incarceration, over 20 plaintiffs have finally felt comfortable enough to step forward, sharing the humiliation they endured and seeking retribution for the injuries and humiliation they suffered.
