South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg has been convicted in impeachment charges and removed from office over the aftermath following a fatal car crash in 2020 he was involved in. Ravnsborg, 46, faced the state's first impeachment trial for his conduct surrounding the traffic accident, in which he struck and killed a pedestrian with his 2011 Ford Taurus. After he was convicted by the state senate of two impeachment charges -- committing a crime that caused someone's death and a malfeasance charge alleging he misled investigators and misused his office -- Ravnsborg was removed from office and barred from holding future office.
