Billionaire Denny Sanford Is Off the Hook in Child Porn Probe
Star Tribune via GettySIOUX FALLS—Billionaire Denny Sanford, South Dakota’s richest man, is off the hook in a long-running child porn probe after the state’s assistant attorney general on Friday found he’d committed “no prosecutable offenses.” The banker and philanthropist has been at the center of an investigation since the summer of 2020, after investigative reporting outlet ProPublica reported that Sanford was under legal scrutiny on suspicion of possessing and distributing sexual content involving children.On Friday, as the long Memorial Day weekend started and few people were following the news, South Dakota Assistant Attorney General Brent Kempema said “there are no prosecutable offenses within the jurisdiction of the state of South Dakota.”Kempema said the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation had wrapped up its investigation into Sanford. South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg is not currently involved, since he has been impeached for a 2020 fatal car crash and is suspended from duty pending a June 21-22 trial in the state Senate.Read more at The Daily Beast.
