Janklow cited for speeding in Clay Co.

Former South Dakota governor and U.S. representative William Janklow was cited on June 27 for speeding on a state highway, for which he was required to pay a fine of $59, plus court costs.

The South Dakota Highway Patrol made the traffic stop.

The charge was filed with the First Judicial Circuit Court of Clay County, and the case was disposed of July 25.

In August 2003, a vehicle driven by Janklow struck a motorcyclist near Flandreau. The man � Randy Scott � crashed into the side of Janklow�s car and was killed.

Prosecutors later alleged Janklow�s vehicle was traveling at least 70 mph in a 55 mph zone.

Janklow resigned his House seat in 2004 as a result of the incident; soon after he was convicted by a Moody County jury of second-degree manslaughter.
