SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Less than two weeks after being acquitted of two felony charges -- Nancy Workman gets a warning from the District Attorney's Office.

The D-A's office recently wrote a letter to the former Salt Lake County mayor. It says Workman's nearly 175-thousand dollars left over from campaign contributions can NOT be mixed with her personal funds or placed into a personal or business account.

The letter also warns that the money -- under a county ordinance -- can only be spent for "political purposes."

Workman has put the money into a private account. Her attorney says she hasn't spent a penny.

However, yesterday deputy district attorneys said they will NOT prosecute her for depositing the money or spending it as she chooses.

Workman's attorney says he believes she will keep the money in an account and donate it to candidates for the next decade.

Earlier this month, Workman was found "not guilty" of two counts of misuse of public funds.
