(JACKSON COUNTY, Mo.) Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Bakers announced Friday that she will not re-file charges in the Eric Greitens case.

Baker stated that her office did not have sufficient evidence to consider filing new charges in the Greitens case and that corroborating evidence for an invasion of privacy case was still missing.

Greitens resigned June 1 after 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.

Baker noted that the statue of limitations was set to expire this weekend.

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.
