Special prosecutor to announce decision on Greitens’ charge

Eric Greitens

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ The special prosecutor considering whether to re-file a felony invasion of privacy charge against former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens will announce her decision on Friday.

The office of Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker says she will make a statement and offer details at 3 p.m. in Kansas City.

The Republican governor resigned effective June 1. He was indicted by a St. Louis grand jury for allegedly taking an unauthorized photo of a partially-nude woman during an extramarital affair in 2015. St. Louis prosecutors dropped the charge last month and Baker was appointed to consider whether it should be re-filed.

In exchange for Greitens’ resignation, St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner dropped a second felony charge that accused him of using a charity donor list for his political campaign.
