South Dakota impeachment trial will probe AG’s fatal crash

South Dakota impeachment trial will probe AG’s fatal crash

South Dakota senators will hear evidence for the impeachment of Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg over his involvement in a fatal 2020 traffic accident.

PIERRE, S.D. — South Dakota senators on Tuesday begin hearing evidence for the impeachment of Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg, whose account of a fatal 2020 traffic accident led criminal investigators, some lawmakers and the victim’s family to question his truthfulness.

Ravnsborg, a Republican who only recently announced he wouldn’t seek a second term, faces two charges in the state’s first-ever impeachment trial, with conviction on either one triggering immediate removal from office. Senators may also vote on whether Ravnsborg should be barred from holding future office.

Either way, the outcome will close a chapter that has roiled state politics, pitting Gov. Kristi Noem against Ravnsborg and some in her own party who objected to her aggressive pursuit of his removal.

Ravnsborg was driving home from a political fundraiser after dark on Sept. 12, 2020, on a state highway in central South Dakota when his car struck “something,” according to a transcript of his 911 call afterward. He later said it might have been a deer or other animal.

Ravnsborg said neither he nor the county sheriff who came to the scene knew that he had struck and killed a man — 55-year-old Joseph Boever — until Ravnsborg returned to the scene the following morning.
