    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.

    Dale Malesh, 62, appeared Friday in 37th District Court and was ordered held on a $150,000 bond on two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct. He told the judge the accusations against him are “without merit” and denied the charges ... Malesh retired from the Warren police force in January 2011 after 19 years with the department. He went on to work as a school resource officer at Warren Woods Tower High School, where the victim is a currently a junior.


    It’s not know how long the relationship was going on or where the alleged incidents occurred, but investigators say nothing happened between the two at the school. A complaint was filed on March 21 by the girl and her mother. “A lot of the investigation involved text messages and Tweets and Facebook,” Warren Police Commissioner Jere Green told The Oakland Press. “Based on the evidence that I reviewed, the evidence that’s been presented to date is disturbing.” According to reports, the teen said the charges against Malesh are “overblown.” She reportedly said Malesh was her boyfriend and anything that occurred between them was ”completely consensual.”

    Macomb Daily: Ex-cop's sex case halted when teen too ‘distressed' (May 7 2013)

    The 16-year-old girl, who attends Warren Woods-Tower High School, sat silently for several seconds when asked repeatedly in court about a change in her relationship with former Warren police officer Dale Wayne Malesh, 62. “I’m too emotionally distressed to answer,” said the teen, whose name is not being published by The Macomb Daily.


    Malesh, of Roseville, faces two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison. He retired from the Warren Police Department in January 2011, having spent the last 11 years of his law enforcement career as a school resource officer in Warren Woods Public Schools, where he had the nickname “OD” for “Officer Dale.” After Malesh left the police force, school district officials hired him as a school security contractor.


    According to court records, Warren police and prosecutors allege that sexual penetration occurred in February and March.

    Macomb Daily: Former Warren school security officer faces trial on sex charges (June 4 2013)

    A former Warren police officer who spent more than a dozen years working in one of the city’s school districts was ordered Tuesday to stand trial on sexual misconduct charges, following testimony by a 16-year-old girl. Dale Wayne Malesh, 62, was bound over to Macomb County Circuit Court on four counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct — a 15-year felony — after the teen said in Warren district court that she voluntarily engaged in sexual penetration with him in February and March. The girl — whose name is not being published by The Macomb Daily — is a student at Warren Woods-Tower High School.


    Malesh was employed by the Warren Woods Public schools as a school liaison officer from January 2011 to June 2012. Prior to that, he served as a school resource officer in Warren Woods, with the district and the city splitting the cost of his salary from September 1999 until his retirement from the Police Department in January 2011.

    Daily Tribune: Former Warren school resource officer faces more sex charges (June 12 2013)

    Retired Warren police officer Dale Wayne Malesh, 62, was arraigned Wednesday in a Roseville courtroom on 10 counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct. The offense is a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison. The charges stem from a relationship that police and prosecutors say he had with a 16-year-old girl.

    In a district court hearing in Warren last week, the teenager, who attends Warren Woods-Tower High School, testified she willingly engaged in sexual penetration with Malesh at her home in the city. Judge Dean Ausilio subsequently bound that case over to Macomb County Circuit Court, where Malesh faces four counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct. In the latest case, Malesh engaged in sexual penetration with the teenager last December, according to prosecutors and court records. Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith said the acts occurred at Malesh’s home and at Roseville’s Dooley Park.
