John Swallow's court date moved to July 30
Former Utah Attorney General John Swallow's initial court appearance on bribery and other charges has been delayed about a week.
Swallow originally was to appear in 3rd District Court on Tuesday. With the rescheduling, to 8:30 a.m. July 30, he will be seen with co-defendant Mark Shurtleff, also a former Utah attorney general.
Shurtleff, who served 12 years as the state's top law-enforcement officer, was charged this week with 10 felonies. Swallow, his handpicked successor, faces 11 felony and two misdemeanor counts.
Both men have proclaimed their innocence. They are accused of receiving or soliciting bribes, accepting gifts, tampering with evidence, and participating in a pattern of unlawful conduct.
