(Sioux Falls, SD) — A former South Dakota reporter is pleading guilty to a reduced charge for making a prank phone call using the cell phone number of Governor Kristi Noem. The charge against Austin Goss was reduced to a Class 2 misdemeanor. The court also granted Goss a suspended imposition of sentence so there will be no conviction on his record. Documents say the call came from a website called PrankDial. That site makes it appear the call came from the phone number that belongs to Noem. Dakota News Now & KOTA Territory News terminated Goss’ employment after learning about the case.
