Audio Allowed In Ravnsborg Trial

Audio Allowed In Ravnsborg Trial

There’s a new filing in the criminal case against South Dakota’s Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg of Yankton.

The document confirms Judge John Brown will allow KYNT News to bring you the audio from inside the courtroom when Jason Ravnsborg goes on trial.

The filing is found in an email chain involving the judge, a court administrator and a trial coordinator with the Law & Crime Trial Network which broadcasts trials.

The trial coordinator requested expanded media coverage during Ravnsborg’s trial. Judge Brown responded saying, “Given Mr. Ravnsborg’s previous objections, video will not be allowed. However, audio will.”

Ravnsborg’s trial is scheduled to begin August 26th, nearly a year after investigators say Ravnsborg hit and killed Joe Boever on the shoulder of a Hyde County highway near Highmore.

Ravnsborg faces misdemeanor charges for his driving leading up to the crash. He does not face charges directly connected with Boever’s death.
