ST. LOUIS (AP) — An attorney for Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens is urging a judge to halt all evidence-gathering as his trial gets underway on an invasion-of-privacy charge.
Greitens’ attorney Jim Martin said Friday that a special examiner had extracted thousands of images from Greitens’ cellphone “and none were found” of a woman with whom he acknowledged having an affair.
Greitens is charged with taking and transmitting a nonconsensual photo of the woman while she was at least partially nude in 2015.
Martin told St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison that it’s time to shut down the evidence-gathering phase of the trial.
Jury selection entered its second day Friday and is expected to continue Monday.
Greitens has declined to say whether he took a photo but has denied criminal wrongdoing.
