Investigation of billionaire T. Denny Sanford remains open

January 12, 2022

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The South Dakota attorney general’s office and the lawyer for billionaire banker and philanthropist T. Denny Sanford have confirmed in recent court filings that an investigation into Sanford for possible possession of child pornography is still ongoing.

It was not clear whether the investigation into Sanford had concluded. But both sides filed documents last week fighting a South Dakota Supreme Court ruling that would allow some information related to search warrants in the case to become public.

As part of his argument, Sanford lawyer Marty Jackley said the probe revealed that his client’s email accounts were hacked.
