Hughes County States Attorney asked to supervise the investigation into Governor’s use of the state airplane

PIERRE, S.D.(KCCR)- Hughes County States Attorney Jessica LaMie will have a front row seat to the investigation into use of the state airplane by South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem.  Interim Attorney General Mark Vargo, who was appointed by Noem following the impeachment and removal of Jason Ravnsborg as A-G, asked LaMie to supervise the investigation of the complaint.

LaMie doesn’t believe her assistance in the investigation of the complaint will impact her regular duties prosecuting crimes in Hughes County.

With the investigation coming in the middle of an election bid for Noem; LaMie knows the eyes of South Dakota will be on her office.

LaMie says its too early to determine a timeline for the investigation.
