Utah Attorney General
The True Story of a Real fake - The Scourge of Identity Theft
Mark Shurtleff was elected as the Utah Attorney General in November 2000. Since taking office, the number of meth labs have been decreased by two-thirds and he has talked to thousands of students and parents about the dangers of drugs.
He has also toured the state to warn about the predators on the Internet. The AG's Office investigates and prosecutes child pornographers who use the Internet to abuse children and has a 100% conviction rate. Shurtleff set up Utah's AMBER Alert, helped pass the state’s Do Not Call Bill and stopped the federal government from legally taking control of millions of acres of public lands in Utah. Previously, Shurtleff served as a Salt Lake County Commissioner and prosecuted cases as an Officer and Attorney in the U.S. Navy Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps.
