Missouri governor Eric Greitens has been indicted on a charge of invasion of privacy, according to KMOV-TV.
“The charge says Greitens knowingly took a photograph of a woman in a “state of full or partial nudity without the knowledge and consent” of that woman. The charge goes on to say the photograph was taken “in a place where a person would have a reasonable expectation of privacy, and the defendant subsequently transmitted the image contained in the photograph in a manner that allowed access to that image via a computer.”
Invasion of Privacy in the 1st Degree is a Class D Felony in Missouri.”
UPDATE: Missouri Gov. Greitens has been taken into custody by police, according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
In a statement, Greitens’ attorney says that the charges are “baseless” and that Greitens is “absolutely innocent.”
