SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Sacramento County's prosecutor has rejected a report from the state attorney general on $20 million hidden by state parks officials and says she will not consider pressing charges against anyone.

The attorney general had forwarded the report for possible prosecution, but District Attorney Jan Scully said in a letter Thursday that investigations involving state officials have historically been handled by the attorney general. The report also listed no suspects or potential crimes.

The attorney general found that senior officials at the Department of Parks and Recreation helped keep millions of dollars secret from state finance officials for more than a decade.

Scully said it would be difficult to prove criminal wrongdoing, however, as the funds were disclosed to the state controller, no one profited, and the money was never spent.
