Mayer honored as SD prosecutor of the year

PIERRE (AP) — Deputy Attorney General Robert Mayer has been honored as South Dakota's prosecutor of the year.

The South Dakota State's Attorneys Association has given the award annually since 2002.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says Mayer has been prosecuting crime for more than 30 years throughout the state and has worked tirelessly to seek justice and advocate for the rights of victims. Jackley says Mayer is very deserving of the award.

Jackley and Spink County States Attorney Vic Fischbach, the association's president, presented the award at the annual meeting in Deadwood last week.

Minnehaha County States Attorney Aaron McGowan will become president of the association in September, and Union County States Attorney Jerry Miller will sit as vice chairman.
