MUSKEGON COUNTY — Another criminal investigation is under way of a Muskegon County employee: this time, a Friend of the Court worker suspected of stealing public funds.
The employee was placed on administrative leave and escorted from the Michael E. Kobza Hall of Justice Friday by sheriff’s deputies. Her name has not been publicly released.
A criminal complaint was to be turned over to the prosecutor’s office within a day or two, Muskegon County Sheriff Dean Roesler said Monday afternoon.
The investigation concerns allegations the employee stole money, Roesler said. Further details were not available Monday.
Patricia Steele, 14th Circuit Court administrator, said only that “a court employee” had been placed on administrative leave and was being investigated. “We are awaiting a report from the appropriate authorities,” she said. “We will take whatever action we deem necessary and appropriate at that time.”
Also on Monday, the sheriff’s office was turning its criminal investigation of fired Deputy County Treasurer Dan Joslyn over to the prosecutor’s office, Roesler said. “It should be reaching their desk by the end of the day,” the sheriff said. FULL STORY
