South Dakota House consider their options of impeaching the Attorney General

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- The next step for South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg may be an impeachment trial before the state legislature.

Senator Art Rusch of Vermillion says the rules of evidence are much different in an impeachment.

Ravnsborg was found guilty of two misdemeanor traffic violations in connection with the death of Joe Boever last September near Highmore.

Rusch says each House of the Legislature has a role.

Rusch says each body could be called separately into special session for the impeachment.

Rusch is a former circuit judge and current Chairman of the Judiciary Committee.

House Majority Leader Kent Peterson of Salem says the Attorney General should step down.

Peterson says its time to resolve the issue.

Peterson says discussions about impeachment are continuing.

The Department of Public Safety turned over the entire investigative file of the case to House Speaker Spencer Gosch.
