WXYZ: Retired Warren police officer accused of having sex with a high school student: Teen says 62-year-old is her boyfriend (April 12 2013) Retired Warren police officer, Dale Wayne [Malesh] , of Roseville was arraigned Friday afternoon in 37th District Court on two charges of 3rd degree criminal sexual conduct for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 16-year old high school student. For at least two school terms, 62-year-old [Malesh] worked as a security officer at Warren Woods Tower High School where he met the 16-year-old junior. ... The 16-year-old has spoken exclusively to 7 Action News and insists that [Malesh] was her boyfriend and that they were in love, but now that [Malesh] is charged, the relationship--she says--has ended. The charges stem from Michigan law, which says an adult in a position of authority cannot have a sexual relationship with a student. The victim says she has known officer [Malesh] since she was in middle school and that their relationship grew into in early December. [Malesh] was formerly charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct that carry 15 year maximum prison sentences each. At his video arraignment, the 16-year-old high school junior, who says she was his girlfriend, sat crying in the courtroom. In an exclusive interview with the investigators, she read a prepared statement she had written in her cell phone: “Everything that ever happened between us was always totally up to me, nothing was ever forced. I never felt obligated to do anything with him. It was completely consensual. If I said stop he did right away with no questions asked. He always made sure I was aware of what’s going on and that I was comfortable with it. I am not a victim and he is not a predator,” the student told 7 Action News.
