Legislators now know exactly what the Attorney General knows in regards to the sexual misconduct investigation of State Senator Dan Sutton.
Sen. Ed Olson, R-Mitchell, chairman of the Legislature’s Executive Board, said Sioux Falls lawyer Jim McMahon told the committee what he has learned from criminal-investigation records that were subpoenaed from the attorney general’s office. The panel also talked about what direction the probe will take in the future, Olson said.
Now that everybody knows everything (except the residents of South Dakota) it will be interesting to see how the legislators decide to proceed. Given the time the Attorney General has had to investigate and the fact that no charges have been filed, it appears that they don’t have enough to prosecute Sutton in Criminal court.
