SALT LAKE CITY — A judge says she expects two former Utah attorneys general accused of bribery to appear at future court hearings in their cases.

Judge Elizabeth Hruby-Mills wrote in court documents filed Monday that John Swallow and Mark Shurtleff should attend hearings unless she excuses them beforehand.

Two men made initial appearances in July, but were excused them from a scheduling hearing in October. Shurtleff's attorney Richard Van Wagoner said he'll comply with the new order. Swallow's attorney wasn't immediately available for comment Tuesday.

The former top Utah lawmen are facing charges including bribery, evidence tampering and obstructing justice. They are accused of accepting money and gifts like California beach vacations and the use of luxury boats and homes.

Both have denied any wrongdoing.
