Full Ravnsborg investigation file provided to Speaker Gosch

PIERRE, S.D. — Governor Kristi Noem and the South Dakota Department of Public Safety provided the full investigation file of the fatal crash involving South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg to Speaker of the South Dakota House of Representatives, Spencer Gosch, Wednesday afternoon.

The cover letter written by Secretary of the Department of Public Safety Craig Price to Speaker Gosch sets out generally what is included within the investigation file.

“This investigation file represents incredible work by our excellent law enforcement officers, and I thank them for their efforts,” said Gov. Noem. “The remarkable detail in this investigation file will assist the House in its important work of considering whether to proceed with impeachment articles for the Attorney General.”

The file also includes a minimal amount of redacted information referring to unrelated investigations and/or security matters.

Back in March, Speaker Gosch said that the House would wait until after “the judicial system is able to do its job” to proceed with articles of impeachment against Ravnsborg.

Many groups like the South Dakota Sheriff’s Association, the South Dakota Police Chiefs Association, and the South Dakota Fraternal Order of Police previously called on Ravnsborg to resign.
