Police Brutality : Handcuffed and Punched Repeatedly In The Face

A Milwaukee County sheriff's sergeant was convicted Tuesday of beating a suspect handcuffed inside a squad car, where a video camera recorded the entire incident.

Scott Krause, 38, was arrested Oct. 16, within hours of when Ray Calderon had complained to sheriff's officials about being slugged in the face after he asked to use the restroom.

Four days later, Krause was charged with misdemeanor battery and misconduct in public office, a felony. He pleaded no contest to both charges Tuesday, was found guilty, and faces up to nine months in jail on the battery and up to 3½ years in prison on the felony at his sentencing March 5.
