South Dakota AG Ravnsborg charged with 3 misdemeanors in fatal crash

Jason Ravnsborg, South Dakota’s Republican attorney general, has been charged with three misdemeanors for hitting and killing a man with his car last summer. Ravnsborg, who avoided serious felony charges, could face up to 30 days in jail and up to a $500 fine on each charge. Relatives of the victim said they were disappointed but not surprised that Ravnsborg was only facing misdemeanor charges.

I am a bit surprised he got a misdemeanor, as even the argument of negligence seems rather weak.

No information on the blood alcohol of the guy whose truck was in a ditch and he was walking in a roadway at night. Why?

I remember reading about this when it came out. The driver was sober, and the pedestrian was walking on a roadway late at night. The driver even examined the roadway just moments after the collision. I'm not trying to poopoo the victim but common sense dictates that non-motorized traffic should not be mingling with motorized traffic.

I guess it helps when you are the boss. Why is he still in his job?
