SD Judge Stops Release of Information in AG Fatal Crash

A South Dakota judge has blocked Governor Kristi Noem from releasing documents and video in the investigation of the state’s Attorney General for striking and killing a man with his car on September 12.  Defense attorneys for AG Jason Ravnsborg of Yankton argued that the release of video of his interviews with investigators and other documents violated his right to a fair trial.  The judge ordered Governor Noem to halt plans to release more information from the crash investigation.
