SD Supreme Court: Fired DCI Agent Appeals


A former agent for the Division of Criminal Investigation is appealing his firing for unbecoming conduct. The South Dakota Supreme Court heard the case on Monday, Oct. 3.

Former DCI agent Mark Black was discharged for inability to control his emotions, poor judgment, and dishonesty, leading to an end to his eight-year career with the state's top law enforcement agency.

SDPB's Victoria Wicks reports that some accusations against Black come from information posted on the Internet.

The SD Supreme Court is holding its October term at Northern State University in Aberdeen. It continues hearing oral arguments on Tuesday and Wednesday. The court issues opinions at a later date.
