Prosecutors may return $10,000 in cash seized from former Utah Attorney General John Swallow when agents raided his house last summer.
In documents filed in 3rd District Court, Swallow's attorneys wrote that Assistant Salt Lake County District Attorney Chou Chou Collins stipulated to their request that the $10,000 be returned.
Judge Elizabeth A. Hruby-Mills has not ruled on the request.
Swallow is charged with 11 felonies and two misdemeanors, including multiple counts of receiving or soliciting bribes, accepting gifts, tampering with evidence, obstructing justice and participating in a pattern of unlawful conduct. His predecessor, Mark Shurtleff, is charged with 10 felonies, including receiving or soliciting bribes, accepting gifts, tampering with witnesses and evidence, and participating in a pattern of unlawful conduct.
Both former attorneys general say they are innocent.
