FARGO, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says he doesn’t favor a proposal that would limit law enforcement authorities from using college students as confidential informants in drug-related investigations.

Stenehjem’s remarks to KFGO-AM (https://bit.ly/1NPu5YW ) come over a year after the death of a North Dakota college student who was working for a drug task force as a confidential informant a few months before he died. The body of 20-year-old Andrew Sadek was found June 2014 in the Red River with a gunshot wound to the head.

His mother, Tammy Sadek, maintains the task force pressured her son to work with them and that he was murdered. She is proposing the measure banning college students as informants.

Stenehjem says a better option may be for authorities to have a uniform policy and fully explain informants how they would be used in investigations.
