Local Man Facing AIDS-Related Charge

Posted: Updated:

A man who served more than four years in prison for sexual assault and corruption of a minor is now charged with transfer of body fluid that may contain H-I-V, the virus that causes AIDS.

42-year-old Scott Bethke, formerly of Minot and now with an Upham address, is accused of knowingly being H-I-V-positive, and having sexual relations with another person.

He entered a not guilty plea to the charge in district court yesterday.

Bethke faced the same charge back in 2006, although he was found not guilty of the charge at the same time he was convicted of other charges including sexual assault.

He received a five year prison sentence in 2008 and was released from prison in 2012.

The new Class-A Felony charge accuses Bethke of having sex with another person between February 9th and Marth 3rd in Minot.

A pre-trial conference has been scheduled for January 15th in the case.
