Weekend Court Filing Casts Doubt on Gov. Greiten’s Accuser
A spokeswoman for the St. Louis Circuit Attorney's office says the latest court filing by attorneys for Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens is another attack on the "credibility of the victim."
Greitens faces trial in May on a felony invasion of privacy charge for allegedly taking a partially nude photo of a woman with whom he was having an affair in 2015 while she was blindfolded and bound. In a court filing Sunday, Greitens' attorneys say the woman testified she never saw Greitens with a camera or phone on the day he is accused of taking the photo. The court filing says the woman also testified during her Friday deposition that she doesn't know if her belief that he had a phone was the result of a dream.
Circuit attorney spokeswoman Susan Ryan says in a statement that the defense "cherry picked bits and pieces" of the woman's nine-hour deposition.
The filing also indicates the woman revealed that she sent partially nude images of herself to Greitens in June 2015 - three months after the encounter for which Greitens is charged.
