South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg (rouns-berg) of Yankton has been charged with three misdemeanors in connection with a deadly crash last September.
55-year-old Joe Boever (bee-ver) was walking on the shoulder of Highway 14 west of Highmore on the night of September 12th when he was hit by Ravnsborg’s car and found dead the next day.
Beadle County State’s Attorney Michael Moore says Ravnsborg and the Hyde County Sheriff looked around that Saturday night.
Ravnsborg is charged with Operating a Vehicle While Using a Mobile Device, Illegal Lane Change, and Careless Driving. Each of the misdemeanor counts carries a maximum penalty of 30 days in county jail, a 500-dollar fine, or both.
