SALT LAKE CITY -- Republican Salt Lake County Mayor candidate Mark Crockett has been found in violation of campaign finance rules. Now the district attorney is telling him to return some big campaign donations or face a criminal charge.

Crockett has been ordered to return $5,500 in campaign contributions.

The candidate contends it is a misunderstanding about how to interpret the county’s campaign finance rules.
