Utah Attorney General John Swallow is resigning amid mounting investigations that have hounded him since his first days in office this year.

Lawyer Rod Snow says the investigations have taken a toll on Swallow and his family. He says Swallow is planning to resign at some point in the next few days.

The Utah lieutenant governor's office is getting close to completing its investigation of campaign disclosure accusations against Swallow. But Snow says Swallow's resignation is not the result of any deal tied to those findings.

The Utah House is in the midst of its own inquiry of Swallow, and two county prosecutors are also investigating whether the Utah attorney general's office broke any state laws.

Swallow, a Republican, has previously denied all wrongdoing.
