High court vacates Annette Bosworth's perjury convictions

The South Dakota Supreme Court this week reversed half of former U.S. Senate candidate Annette Bosworth’s convictions stemming from her unsuccessful 2014 Republican primary race.

The 45-year-old Sioux Falls physician said Thursday that she’s grateful, but said that she needs to speak with her attorney. Bosworth appealed after a jury in 2015 found her guilty of six felony counts each of perjury and filing false documents that she submitted to appear on the ballot.

The high court in a Wednesday ruling vacated the perjury convictions, but upheld her convictions for filing false candidate nominating petitions. Arguments in the case were held in November 2016.

“I’m so grateful that half of them are gone,” Bosworth said. “That’s a blessing.”
