傑森-拉文斯伯格南達科他州檢察官因肇事逃逸而被趕走

南達科他州的立法者們已經投票決定對該州的總檢察長進行彈劾和免職,因為他在2020年的一場車禍中殺死了一名男子。

傑森-拉文斯伯格說,他以為自己在2020年9月12日晚上開車回家時撞到了一隻鹿,直到第二天才知道那是一個人。

但他的運氣在州議會中用完了,他在4月被眾議院彈劾了。

周二,參議院判定拉文斯伯格犯有導致他人死亡的罪行,並以誤導執法部門和濫用職權的瀆職罪對其定罪。

此舉引發了他的自動免職。議會還一致投票決定禁止該檢察官今後在該州擔任職務。

檢察官說,他當時以67英里/小時(108公里/小時)的速度行駛,比限速高出2英里/小時,而且記錄顯示他在撞車前約1分鐘鎖定了手機。

調查人員在車禍發生後的第二天趕到現場,發現了一個仍在工作的手電筒,它離路面只有幾英寸,地面上還有骨頭的刮痕。


South Dakota lawmakers have voted to impeach and remove from office the state's attorney general over a 2020 car crash in which he killed a man.

Jason Ravnsborg has said he thought he struck a deer while driving home at night on 12 September 2020 and did not know it was a man until the next day.

But his luck ran out in the state legislature, where he was impeached by the House in April.

On Tuesday, the Senate convicted Ravnsborg for committing crimes that caused someone's death, and on a malfeasance charge for misleading law enforcement and abusing the powers of his office.

The move triggers his automatic removal from office. The chamber also voted unanimously to bar the prosecutor from holding future office in the state.

Prosecutors say he was driving at 67mph (108km/h), 2mph over the speed limit, and that records show he had locked his mobile phone about one minute before the collision.

Investigators arriving at the scene one day after the crash found a working torch, which was still on and only inches from the road, and bone scrapings on the ground.
