S.D. Attorney General to speak about prosecuting murderer of AIM activist in 1975

Thirty five years after the body of American Indian Movement activist Annie Mae Aquash was found in a ravine on the Pine Ridge Reservation, John Graham, fellow AIM activist, was convicted of her murder. South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley will recount the decades-long investigation into Aquash’s murder and the eventual prosecution of Graham during a presentation at the University Center-Rapid City Thursday, March 20 at 4 p.m.

Prosecutors say Graham and two other AIM activists, Arlo Looking Cloud and Theda Clarke, killed Aquash in December 1975 because they suspected she was a government informant. After decades of investigation, federal agents brought down an indictment in March 2003. Graham was convicted to life in prison in 2010.

In 2009, Jackely was sworn in as the state’s 30th attorney general. Jackley served as a law clerk for former Chief Judge Richard Battey in federal district court. He joined the Rapid City law firm of Gunderson, Palmer, Nelson, and Ashmore where he focused on criminal law, civil and business litigation, construction/engineering law and real property disputes. During that time, he also served as special assistant attorney general for South Dakota prosecuting controlled substance felonies. In 2006, Jackley was appointed by the U.S. Senate as U.S. Attorney for South Dakota. He was named the South Dakota Prosecutor of the Year in 2008.

The event is free and open to the public.
