STANTON, N.D. (AP) - Trial for a former Beulah Lead police officer who prosecutors say admitted to sexual contact with a teenager has been rescheduled for March.

A trial that was to have started Thursday will now begin March 8 for 36-year-old Dustin Pekas at the Mercer County Courthouse in Stanton. The Bismarck Tribune says court records show the discovery process is not yet complete, so the trial was reset.

Pekas is charged with felony sexual assault. The former officer lost his motion last month to have statements made to state investigators in September thrown out because of lack of counsel.
