Attorney General’s Office to seek different prosecutor for Marc Jenson case

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – The Utah Attorney General’s Office announced Wednesday it will remove itself from the prosecution of the criminal case against Marc Jenson.
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) – The Utah Attorney General’s Office announced Wednesday it will remove itself from the prosecution of the criminal case against Marc Jenson according to a news release from the AG’s office.

Jenson and his co-defendant, Stephen Jenson, are charged with multiple counts of communications fraud and money-laundering in conjunction with the failed business venture in Beaver County known as the Mount Holly Club.

The AG’s office says there is “no legal or factual basis to disqualify the office,” but the state acknowledges that the defendant’s allegations have disrupted the proceedings thus far and has created the appearance of bias on the part of the AG’s office.

A substitute prosecutor is being sought, and will be announced at the next court hearing scheduled on August 5 if the judge permits the voluntary recusal.
