File: John Swallow and Mark Shurtleff make their first appearance in 3rd District Court

Prosecutors are accusing John Swallow of yet another crime in the corruption case against Utah’s former attorney general. 

In the amended filing made Wednesday in Third District Court, prosecutors with the Salt Lake County Attorney’s office added money laundering to the list of alleged crimes committed by John Swallow. The charges now total 14.

The prosecution also submitted a list of witnesses they plan to call when the preliminary hearing begins on June 8. 33 people are named, including former employees in the Attorney General’s office, Swallow campaign staff members, and St. George businessman Jeremy Johnson.

Swallow resigned from office in 2013 amidst several investigations into allegations that his office was essentially for sale. Swallow has said he’s innocent of all charges.
