SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — The same day the South Dakota Supreme Court released search warrants that identify T. Denny Sanford as the implicated individual in a child pornography investigation, Sanford’s lawyer Marty Jackley said in a statement that the S.D. Attorney General has said the first page of those search warrants contain inaccurate information.
Jackley also points out what Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg said in his Oct. 28 news release, in which Ravnsborg questioned the accuracy of information from anonymous sources that have been providing the information on this investigation.
Ravnsborg said in his Oct. 28 news release that “an August 24, 2021, story published by the Associated Press attributed certain statements to law enforcement officers and the Attorney General. Those anonymous statements are inaccurate and do not properly reflect the position of our Office.”
Here is Jackley’s full statement:
“The Attorney General through his October 28, 2021, press release, has now called into question the accuracy of the anonymous sources that have been providing the information on this investigation. Irrespective of the anonymous sources, what we do know is that an investigation involving search warrants began in December of 2019, and it was thorough in that it included five search warrants. The Attorney General has further acknowledged in the Court filings the headings on the first page of each of the search warrants being released today contain incorrect information. The ultimate fact remains that the investigating authorities have not found information to support criminal charges.”
