S.D. lawmakers ask for, will receive full briefing on Ravnsborg investigation
PIERRE, S.D. —With the full South Dakota House of Representatives set to convene next week to consider the possible impeachment of Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg, legislators have asked the Department of Public Safety for a full briefing on the investigation.
Ravnsborg pleaded no contest to a pair of misdemeanor charges in relation to a vehicle accident that killed Joseph Boever on September 12, 2020, in Hyde County.
That public briefing is scheduled for Wednesday, April 6, 2022 in Pierre. It starts at 12:00 p.m. MT/ 1:00 p.m. CT in the Capitol Lake Visitors Center. Lawmakers may also attend via Zoom.
The House Select Committee on Investigation, chaired by House Speaker Spencer Gosch (R – District 23), has issued a majority report recommending against impeachment. The two Democrats on the committee issued a minority report recommending the opposite; that Ravnsborg be impeached.
In anticipation of that briefing, DPS has released additional information from its investigative report.
