State Conducts Internal Probe Of Three Corrections Officials

The state Corrections Department has started an internal investigation of three agency officials convicted of fishing violations in Ohio.

Portage prison warden Michael Dittman, deputy Green Bay warden Steve Schueler, and adult prison official Paul Neevel, Junior were all fined 150 dollars this month for criminal misdemeanors. Officials said they each caught a limit of six walleye, dropped them off at a shoreline, and went out and caught two to six more fish at a site in Ottawa County, Ohio. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says three former Wisconsin corrections officials also went on the trip and got fines ranging up to 300-dollars. Wisconsin corrections' employees must tell their supervisors if they have police encounters outside of work, and two officials reported it -- thus triggering the internal investigation to determine if they broke any work rules.
