South Dakota's AG charged with 3 misdemeanors in fatal crash
Ravnsborg, South Dakotas Republican attorney general, has been charged with misdemeanor careless driving after he struck and killed a man with his car, authorities said Thursday, Feb. 18, 2021. Ad“At best, his conduct was negligent, which is insufficient to bring criminal charges in South Dakota," Beadle County State's Attorney Michael Moore, who helped handle the case, said. He called South Dakota's manslaughter law “weak” and that he expected his family to take civil action against Ravnsborg. Moore, the state's attorney, said the misdemeanor charges were the “right decision” but that he didn't feel good about it. A crash reconstruction expert from Wyoming and the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation assisted the South Dakota Highway Patrol in the investigation.
