South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg has endorsed legislation to end presumptive probation in drug related cases.  Senate Bill 19 would end the practice of suspects at sentencing for a class 5 or 6 felony, often low-level non-violent drug offenses, receiving probation rather than jail time.  Proponents say it is a tough on crime measure, specifically drug crime, which is what Ravnsborg ran his campaign on, while critics say it is excessive incarceration that will lead to millions of more dollars spent on corrections.  According to the ACLU, ending presumptive probation could result in the need for a new facility to house these extra prisoners at the cost of an estimated $224 million.
