PIERRE, S.D. (KELO) — In a statement released late Tuesday morning, Gov. Kristi Noem (R-S.D.) called for the resignation of Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg. 

Last week, Emily Sovell, the Hyde County deputy state’s attorney, announced she had charged Ravnsborg with three 2nd-class misdemeanors.

“Now that the investigation has closed and charges have been filed, I believe the Attorney General should resign,” Noem said in a statement. “I have reviewed the material we are releasing, starting today, and I encourage others to review it as well.”
