MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — A plea agreement could be in the works for a former Mandan police officer charged with felony sex crimes.
Court records show the prosecution has moved to amend the charges against Scott Warzecha and the defense has made a request to cancel his trial which was scheduled to start Thursday.
Warzecha is accused of using his cellphone to record a minor.
Warzecha was a 13-year police veteran and the department’s dog handler. He was placed on administrative leave at the onset of the investigation and fired a few days later.
A change-of-plea hearing is scheduled for April 16.
