PIERRE

With Clay County State’s Attorney Alexis Tracy by his side, Vargo successfully argued against Ravnsborg and his counsel, Sioux Falls attorney Mike Butler and impeachment defense expert Ross Garber.
Impeachment trial of Jason Ravnsborg lasts only a day.
The decision was publicly announced just 11 days before the South Dakota Senate will meet as a Court of Impeachment to decide Ravnsborg's fate as attorney general for the remainder of his term.
As the process of impeachment and potential removal from office continues, the adopted articles of impeachment will be served upon Ravnsborg, which will trigger a 20-day waiting period before the Senate can begin a trial.
