UPDATED: Wednesday August 27, 2008 2:21 PM

10 Investigates on Friday learned that the former scheduler for Attorney General Marc Dann tried to get her job back after resigning.

Jessica Utovich was tied to the sex scandal inside Dann's office when the attorney general admitted she spent the night at his condo on the city's northwest side, 10 Investigates' Paul Aker reported.

Utovich resigned the night before an internal investigation ousted three of Dann's top aides.

According to documents obtained by 10 Investigates, Utovich tried to rescind her resignation, but she said the Attorney General's Office denied her that option and made her quit, Aker reported.

Utovich then wrote in an e-mail, "I'm not proud of my actions in my personal life, but do not deserve to be retaliated for them by the office."

Dann Spends First Day Out Of Office Selling Dishes

Former Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann spent his first day after resigning helping his wife with her business selling dishes online.

Dann's attorney Mike Harshman said that Dann helped his wife, Alyssa Lenhoff Dann, with her side job selling Fiestaware on the Internet.

Dann walked two miles from his suburban Youngstown home Thursday to the office where he took orders and packed dishes.

Harshman said Dann is weighing career options that could include the law, teaching or another run for political office.

Dann resigned Wednesday after acknowledging an affair with a subordinate and ahead of a threat of impeachment.
