Former Mandan officer accused of felony intercourse crimes might change plea

MANDAN, ND (AP) – A settlement could be reached on a former Mandan police officer charged with sex crimes.

Court records show that prosecutors changed the charges against Scott Warzecha and moved the defense to cancel his trial, which was due to begin Thursday.

Warzecha is accused of recording a minor on his cell phone.

Warzecha was a 13-year-old police veteran and dog handler for the division. He was taken on administrative leave at the beginning of the investigation and released a few days later.

A hearing to amend the plea is scheduled for April 16.
