MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News)   Two suspended Milwaukee police officers are due in court today, on charges that they failed to stop other officers from illegally strip-searching drug suspects. Jeffrey Dollhopf and Brian Kozelek are scheduled to go on trial next week on charges of misconduct in office, and charges related to illegal strip searches. Today's hearing deals with pre-trial matters.

Both defendants have asked that their charges be dropped. They say the allegations are too vague to give a proper defense.

Officer Jacob Knight was recently sentenced to 20 days in jail 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.
