MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- Muskegon County Prosecutor Tony Tague says on Friday he will release the findings of an internal investigation involving members of his office.

Assistant Prosecutors Marc Curtis and Kathryn Norton are suspended with pay following claims they accepted gifts from a Muskegon bail bondsman.

During the investigation Tague says he discovered a connection to the Muskegon County Sheriff's department as well. 

WZZM 13 contacted Sheriff Dean Roesler who says an employee in his department took a trip in February to Las Vegas with bail bondsman Tommy DePung. Roesler says DePung, who has been a long time friend of the sheriff, invited him and others along on the all-expense paid trip. The sheriff says he couldn't go, but told an employee in his department about the opportunity.

Roesler says DePung had recently won the lottery and he wanted to share his good fortune with friends.

Tony Tague says he will release his findings at 9 a.m. Friday.  We will have continuing coverage online and on WZZM 13 News beginning at noon.
