(KSL News) -- A man running for mayor in Cedar City might not get to take office, even if he's elected.

Ernest Miller is a convicted felon. He was found guilty of counterfeit controlled substance charges in 1988.

Since then, his voting rights have been restored, and according to state law, that means he's eligible to hold public office.

But the Utah Attorney General's office says they won't allow Miller to serve if elected.

According to Miller's campaign office, the attorney general's office says it will file suit to keep the ex- felon from holding office.
