Cop Who Forced Dozens of Anal Cavity Searches For Fun Gets Just Two Years In Prison

MichaelVagnini-mugMichael Vagnini and his buddies molested dozens of victims of all ages, but he’ll be doing only two years in prison.

According to this KOB News report, police in Deming, New Mexico, and some doctors they convinced to help them, conducted no fewer than six manual searches of David Eckert’s anus in the hours after they stopped him on January 2. (His crime: allegedly failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign.) The officers asked Eckert to get out of the car. The lawsuit alleges that after he did so, the officers noted that he “appeared to be clenching his buttocks,” and interpreted this as “probable cause to suspect that Eckert was hiding narcotics in his anal cavity.”
