An Atlantic City casino's former security manager faces charges of promoting prostitution and obstructing administration of law, authorities say.
A grand jury indictment out of Atlantic County alleges that James Curtis, 36, of Brigantine, obstructed an investigation at the Trump Taj Mahal while working as security manager there.
According to the New Jersey Attorney General's office, investigators found that Curtis received an email about the presence of undercover detectives conducting prostitution details.
He's then accused of forwarding the email to a woman that he knew was a prostitute with the hope of thwarting the operation, officials say.
Curtis was fired from his job on the day he was arrested in May of last year.
The Casino Prosecution Bureau of the A.G.'s office and New Jersey State Police detectives coordinated the investigation.
Fourth-degree counts like the two Curtis faces carry a possible maximum sentence of 18 months in state prison and a criminal fine of up to $10,000.
