SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors say no criminal charges will be filed against Santa Ana's mayor for a land swap deal with a businessman.

The Orange County District Attorney's Office said Friday a previous fine imposed by the state was enough.

The state Fair Political Practices Commission fined Mayor Miguel Pulido $13,000 and found he committed six state violations including voting on a contract for a businessman who swapped land with Pulido's family.

Prosecutors say there was no evidence Pulido benefited from the land swap and vote.

Pulido's lawyers say they're pleased with the outcome.
