SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Sanford Health’s CEO is responding to reports of a child pornography investigation involving long-time donor T. Denny Sanford.
Kelby Krabbenhoft sent a letter to all Sanford employees acknowledging the investigation and wrote that he is “deeply concerned about these reports.”
According to the Sioux Falls Argus Leader, the investigation centers on an electronic device owned by Sanford.
It started in South Dakota last year and expanded to Arizona and California where T. Denny Sanford has other homes.
In his letter to Sanford Health workers, Krabbenhoft wrote: “I want you to know that this matter does not involve our health system and we have not been contacted by law enforcement.”
T. Denny Sanford’s attorney, Marty Jackley, said “authorities responsible for investigating allegations obviously did not find information or evidence that supported or resulted in any criminal charges.”
T. Denny Sanford has donated around $1 billion to the Sanford Health system since 2007.
