Timothy Lawson had been held since Dec. 12 on charges of interfering with criminal cases and intimidating witnesses.
Prosecutors say he worked as a go-between for Shurtleff and a convicted fraudster.
He is the first person facing charges as part of an ongoing investigation into allegations of wrongdoing at the Utah attorney general’s office.
The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/1m6FzN0) the 49-year-old Lawson bailed out of the Salt Lake County Jail on Friday.
He’s due back in court on Feb. 3.
