South Dakota's first impeachment trial, a historic vote

This video is from SDPB's news program, South Dakota Focus.

South Dakota's first impeachment trial of a constitutional officer is scheduled for late June. Earlier this month, House lawmakers narrowly approved the articles of impeachment against Attorney General Jason Ravsnborg. The impeachment focuses on Ravnsborg's conduct after he struck and killed Joe Boever.

SDPB's Lee Strubinger spoke with lawmakers and Boever's family after the historic vote.
