SALT LAKE CITY — Former Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff has asked prosecutors to turn over all information state and federal investigators have collected about him.

Shurtleff's attorney Rick Van Wagoner filed the request in Utah court Wednesday in order to prepare the former attorney general's defense in his bribery case.

Shurtleff and his successor John Swallow were charged in July with bribery and other counts.

Prosecutors say both men accepted gifts and money from several businessmen.

Shurtleff and Swallow have denied any wrongdoing and Shurtleff has requested his case be separated from Swallow's.

The Deseret News reports ( ) Wednesday's request includes records from a 2007 sting operation in which Shurtleff worked with the FBI.

Van Wagoner says the operation targeted an associate of Marc Jenson, one of the businessmen accused of offering Shurtleff favors.
