NBC News reports that a St. Louis grand jury Thursday indicted Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens on a felony invasion of privacy charge for allegedly taking an intimate photo of a woman he was having an affair with in 2015. The case was brought by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner. Greitens pushed back against the charges, saying, "I made a personal mistake before I was Governor. ... I did not commit a crime." Greitens has also argued his relationship with the woman was consensual. The indictment, however, states that the compromising photo was "transmitted ... in a manner that allowed access to that image via a computer." The penalty for first-degree invasion of privacy in the state is up to four years in prison, the report states.
