SALT LAKE CITY — Prosecutors have filed a new money laundering charge against former Utah Attorney General John Swallow.

Court records show that prosecutors also dropped a charge against Swallow on Wednesday, leaving the number of counts against him at 14.

Along with his predecessor, former Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, he is accused of accepting money and gifts like California beach vacations and the use of luxury boats.

Both have denied any wrongdoing.

Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill says that prosecutors aren't bringing up new wrongdoing, but the already-filed allegations fit the new charge.

Prosecutors are expected to present their evidence against the 52-year-old Swallow at a hearing set to begin June 8.

Defense attorneys Stephen McCaughey and Jeremy Delicino weren't immediately available for comment Wednesday.
