SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Prosecutors have dropped a criminal case against a real estate developer and former Utah Transit Authority board member.

The U.S. Attorney for Utah said Monday that a judge’s decision to toss out key evidence doomed their case against Terry Diehl.

Defense attorney Loren Washburn says the charges were unfounded and Diehl is looking forward reclaiming his good name after two years of investigation and prosecution.

Diehl had once been charged with 14 felonies, but prosecutors previously dropped all but one count. He was accused of lying on a bankruptcy filing by not disclosing a company that prosecutors say was listed in his daughters’ names but controlled by Diehl.

His trial was slated to begin Monday, but prosecutors dropped the charge before it started.
