Prosecutors still waiting on debris testing in September AG Ravnsborg crash

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — A team of prosecutors say that they are waiting for forensic testing results on a piece of debris that may help to show where the South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg‘s car was when he struck and killed a man along Highway 14 near Highmore back in September.

A decision on whether to charge Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg in the Sept. 12 crash has been delayed for more than three months. Governor Kristi Noem said earlier in December that the Hyde County State’s Attorney’s Office should have made a decision by now whether or not to indict Ravnsborg for the death of 55-year-old Joe Boever.

Local authorities have said that Ravnsborg was distracted before drifting onto the shoulder, striking and killing Boever. No further details have been provided in the case.

Crystal Johnson, the Minnehaha County State’s Attorney who is assisting in the case, says that she does not have a time frame for the results, but that they may indicate where Ravnsborg’s car was at the time of the incident.
