SALT LAKE CITY - (July 15, 2014) Gov. Gary R. Herbert issued the following statement regarding the arrests of former Attorneys General Mark Shurtleff and John Swallow:
"This is a sad day for Utah. The entire situation, regardless of how the legal process plays out, is a black eye for our state. While we respect the rule of law and due process, this serves as a reminder that nobody is above the law and, if anything, public servants must be held to a higher standard."
