First Published Dec 16 2013 07:12 am • Last Updated Dec 16 2013 01:29 pm

A close associate of two former Utah attorneys general is facing six felony counts, including obstruction of justice and a pattern of unlawful activity.

Tim Lawson, known as Mark Shurtleff’s "fixer" who reportedly traded more than 680 calls and texts with John Swallow, was arrested last week on charges filed by Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill and Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings.
