MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Former Milwaukee police officer Michael Vagnini won’t have to register as a sex offender, but he is off the job.

Vagnini had faced 25 criminal charges due to eight strip searches and cavity searches. He reached a plea agreement Monday.

The state is going to recommend the 34 year old former officer get some prison time when he is sentenced June 21st. Three other officers charged in the case are scheduled to go to trial in June.

According to Wisconsin state law, only medical personnel are allowed to perform cavity searches and only after a search warrant is issued.

Vagnini pleaded no contest to four felony charges and four misdemeanors.
