Assistant city attorney for Sioux Falls faces Drunken Driving count
44-year-old Keith Allenstein, the assistant city attorney for Sioux Falls is facing a driving under the influence charge.
Allenstein was taken into custody on 14th of June by a Highway Patrol Trooper in Minnehaha. The case is still under investigation as he declined to comment. The state attorney general’s office is handling the case.
Allenstein is continuing to serve in his position as legal adviser to the city police and fire departments according to the City Attorney Dave Pfiefle. He also said that it’s too early to say whether Allenstein might face internal discipline.
The charge is not a felony that’s why the South Dakota Bar Association will not launch an automatic review of Allenstein’s membership.
