It is also barred for Jason Ravnsborg to hold any kind of public office in the future.
During the impeachment hearing that took place on Tuesday, the South Dakota Senate found Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg guilty of two of the charges that were brought against him. As a direct consequence of this, the Senate removed him from his position and made it illegal for him to ever again occupy public office.
The Republican Ravnsborg was removed from office in 2020 as a result of a fatal car accident in which he caused the death of another person. It wasn’t until he phoned 911 and claimed that he had hit a deer or another large animal that he discovered he had actually hit a person. He called 911 and stated that he had hit a deer or another large animal.
An individual named Lee Schoenbeck, who is currently serving as a Republican in the state senate, was overheard saying, “There’s no question that was a fake.” “This individual is to blame for the passing of a South Dakota resident who was not involved in the incident.”
Ravnsborg “definitely observed the individual who he struck in the seconds following,” as the prosecutor in charge of this case in Clay County, Alexis Tracy, stated.
