RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - South Dakota’s attorney general will be promoted.

Jason Ravnsborg, who currently serves in the Army Reserves, posted on his Facebook page that he will be promoted to colonel.

The post also says “only 34% of those eligible” were promoted.

Ravnsborg is facing three misdemeanor charges connected with hitting and killing a Highmore man last September.

We reached out to the Army Reserve Public Affairs Office and received the following statement:

“Army Reserve leadership is aware of the tragic incident allegedly involving LTC Jason Ravnsborg and is following applicable Army regulations and policies. Soldiers pending investigation by civilian law enforcement authorities and/or civilian criminal proceedings may still be eligible for selection for promotion, but the Army Reserve retains discretion regarding actual promotion. In this case, relevant Army Reserve leaders will monitor the ongoing civilian proceedings and make further decisions at the appropriate time.”
