South Dakota's attorney general has been charged with three misdemeanors after hitting and killing a man with his car last summer.

Jason Ravnsborg was driving home when he hit a man walking on the shoulder of the highway. He initially called authorities and told them he thought he hit a deer or some other sort of animal.

The victim's family says they are disappointed in the legal system but not surprised that the attorney general isn't facing more serious charges.
