ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — A former security manager at an Atlantic City casino stands accused of obstructing an undercover investigation that targeted prostitution.

James Curtis of Brigantine was recently indicted on charges of promoting prostitution and obstructing the administration of law. He was arrested in May 2012, but that was not made public until details on the indictment were disclosed Friday, two days after an Atlantic County grand jury issued the indictment.

State authorities say Curtis, who worked at the Trump Taj Mahal casino, received an email in June 2011 about the investigation. They say he then forwarded the message to a prostitute he knew.

Curtis was immediately fired after being arrested. If convicted, he could face up to 36 months in prison.

A telephone number for Curtis could not be found Saturday.
