PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota’s attorney general who is awaiting his next court hearing involving a fatal crash has announced his promotion in the Army Reserves.

Jason Ravnsborg posted on Facebook that he is now a full colonel in the Army Reserves.

Ravnsborg says he’s has been in the military for 24 years and through three deployments.

Ravnsborg is facing three misdemeanor charges and calls for his resignation after he struck and killed Joe Boever who was walking on the side of a rural highway last year.
