Mich. Cop Charged for Inappropriate Contact with Female Prisoner

February 08, 2013  | 

A former Rockwood (Mich.) Police officer has pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges in connection with an allegation of inappropriate contact involving a female prisoner in his custody.

Christian Zieminski, 34, pleaded guilty today in Wayne County Circuit Court to two counts of willful failure to uphold the law, according to a news release from the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.
