SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah) - Former Chief Deputy Attorney General, Kirk Torgensen, was placed on paid administrative leave Wednesday "pending further internal investigation."

A search warrant released Tuesday show investigators are looking for evidence in a "pay for play" scheme against Attorneys General John Swallow and Mark Shurtleff.

The search warrant says former Deputy Attorney General Kirk Torgensen could have had text messages on his phone from Shurtleff and now the phone is considered key evidence.

The warrant was issued in January, but released this week.

The Attorney General's Office released this statement:

"Mr. Torgensen was placed on paid administrative leave today pending further internal investigations. We will not comment further at this time on such investigations or any other external investigations that may be proceeding. We emphasize that there is a presumption of innocence for any of our employees during an internal investigative process."
