(KSL News) Attorney General Mark Shurtleff gave awards today to three public servants who he says have a passion for protecting the people of Utah.

Assistant Attorney General Steve Mikita, who fights for the rights of the disabled in our state, received the Lifetime Achievement Award.

He talked of his first hero, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, whose pictures he saw in a magazine his parents showed him.

"It only took one American president in a wheelchair to give someone who was 4 years old the hope and tenacity to dream and to dare to achieve his dreams from his wheelchair," Mikita said.

Assistant Attorney General Paul Amann, who has prosecuted hundreds of Internet predators, was named the 2007 Attorney of the Year.

Scott Morrill, who helped develop and oversee Utah's Web site for identity theft, received the 2007 Employee of the Year.
