SALT LAKE CITY – A second official from the polygamous sect-run town of Colorado City, Ariz., has been indicted on criminal charges for an alleged misuse of public funds.
The Mohave County attorney's office says in a statement that David Darger improperly used a city credit card while serving as secretary-treasurer of the city fire district. Darger faces 13 felony counts of violating the duty of a custodian of public money, participating in a criminal syndicate and assisting in a criminal syndicate. An arraignment is set for Aug. 23 in Kingman's Mohave Superior Court.
A message left after hours for Darger's attorney, Colin Campbell, was not returned.
Colorado City sits along the Utah border and is home to followers of convicted child sex offender and Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints leader Warren Jeffs.
