SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Former Utah attorneys general Mark Shurtleff and John Swallow will make their first court appearances in the coming weeks on a slew of bribery charges and other counts.

Court records show Swallow is scheduled to appear in state court in Salt Lake City Tuesday morning on 13 charges, including felony counts of bribery and obstructing justice.

Shurtleff is scheduled to appear in state court in Salt Lake City on July 30.

He faces 10 counts, including charges of bribery and evidence and witness tampering.

Authorities arrested both Republicans on Tuesday as prosecutors detailed cozy relationships with businessmen who offered gold coins, luxury trips and flights on a private jet, among other allegations.

Both Shurtleff and Swallow have denied any wrongdoing and say the investigation is politically motivated.
