South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg has obtained his seventh speeding ticket in seven years. The most recent came in Hughes County on Sunday.
Ravnsborg was charged with speeding while doing 57 miles per hour in a 35 mile per hour speed zone. Ravnsborg has yet to pay the $177.50 fine associated with the ticket, due by September 20th.
The ticket came just four days prior to Ravnsborg going to trial to face three second degree misdemeanor charges for an accident he was involved in last September, that resulted in the death of Joe Boever.
Ravnsborg pled no contest to two of the three charges he faced for his involvement in that accident, and paid fines amounting to over $4,000 while avoiding jail time.
