KAYSVILLE, Utah (AP) -- A prosecutor in Utah is declining to file criminal nepotism charges against officials in Kaysville City Hall.

The Standard-Examiner of Ogden reported Thursday the Davis County attorney's office reviewed a resident's complaints about nepotism in Kaysville over a 25-year period.

Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings says too much time has elapsed and that exceptions to rules and statutes of limitations prevent prosecution on criminal nepotism charges.

Resident Margaret Brough says she took complaints to Rawlings after the issue was brought to her attention in a letter.

Brough says she'll keep trying to change nepotism laws through the Legislature and initiative petitions.
