(ST. LOUIS, Mo.)   A St. Louis grand jury has indicted Missouri Governor Eric Greitens.

He is charged with a felony count of invasion of privacy.

According to the indictment, it alleges Greitens took a picture of a woman either fully or partially nude without her knowledge or consent and then transmitted that image so he could have access to it at a later time.

The charge comes following revelations Greitens had an extramerital affair before becoming governor. There were accusations he had threatened to blackmail the other woman in question by releasing nude photos of her unless she kept quiet about the affair.

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner launched an investigation in January after Greitens admitted to an affair that began in March 2015 before he was elected governor in November 2016.


A Gardner spokeswoman says Greitens was taken into custody and then released on his own recognizance.
