Grand jury disbands without indicting St. Louis prosecutor, Gardner speaks about the case

ST. LOUIS – A grand jury that indicted the man hired by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner to investigate former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens has disbanded, but Gardner may not be clear of scrutiny.<

The grand jury’s term expired Monday without a second indictment.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, citing unnamed sources, reports that an investigation of Gardner continues and a special prosecutor may request another grand jury. Messages left Wednesday with the special prosecutor haven’t been returned.

Gardner hired William Tisaby to investigate whether Greitens took an unauthorized, compromising photo of a woman during a 2015 extramarital affair. Greitens was charged with invasion of privacy in February 2018.

The charge was dropped but he resigned.

Tisaby was indicted last month for perjury related to the investigation. That indictment raised concerns about whether Gardner was complicit.

The conclusion of the grand jury also means that a gag order has been lifted. Gardner called a news conference for Thursday, July 11 at noon to discuss the case.
