Marcus Mumford, Jenson’s attorney, said Chief Deputy Attorney General Kirk Torgensen called in and threatened their office, telling them to watch out.
"Mr. Torgensen advised us that Mumford needs to be careful is what he told us,” said Mumford. “It suggests to me that they've got me in their sights and they have my office in their cross hairs. If they think that's going to have any effect then they have another thing coming.”
Torgenson insisted it was not a warning. He said he just wanted Mumford to be fair and accurate.
“I was saying the A.G. office has done this by the book and I hope they're treated fairly and it won't damage their reputation,” Torgenson said. “It wasn't in a threat context but as a friend to friend."
However, Jenson's attorneys are not backing down from what they heard over the weekend.
“I think it's time for the people of Utah to stop letting their prosecutors to act like thugs,” Mumford said.
Jenson was in court for accusations of fraud. His attorneys are filing motions to disqualify the Attorney General from prosecuting him.
