Jackley issues official opinion relating to Marsy's Law

PIERRE, S.D. – Attorney General Marty Jackley has issued an official opinion on the implementation of Marsy’s Law as it relates to release of auto accident reports to the public, the release of street addresses where crimes occur, and the names of victims in crime report logs or law enforcement radio traffic requested.

“While there is more work being done, this opinion is intended to help victims and those assisting victims in carrying out our new law,” Jackley said in a press release. “I would like to thank the individual Task Force members for their willingness to serve and for their assistance on these issues that have affected law enforcement and the public statewide."

Jackley says state and local government entities can release crash reports to the public, and can include street addresses where crimes have occurred and the names of victims in crime report logs.
