  • BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's retired state prison warden won't be allowed on state Corrections Department property after revelations that he didn't inform federal prosecutors a decade ago that a State Penitentiary inmate had downloaded child pornography.
    Corrections Director Leann Bertsch tells The Bismarck Tribune she has banned Tim Schuetzle from the prison and other facilities. She says, "I don't know how he sleeps at night."
    Schuetzle said in a letter to the federal court that he purposely declined to alert authorities because he was unhappy about the way the state handled crimes at the prison. Federal prosecutors say they could have charged Schuetzle with a crime over his decision to keep the matter in-house if the five-year deadline hadn't passed.
    Schuetzle told the Tribune that he doesn't remember the case.
