Clearly it's a set-up, I have it on good authority he was hiking the Appalachian Trail when this allegedly took place.

To further revel in the schadenfreude and post more smilies, here is the statute:
Invasion of privacy, first degree, penalty.

565.252. 1. A person commits the crime of invasion of privacy in the first degree if such person:

(1) Knowingly photographs or films another person, without the person's knowledge and consent, while the person being photographed or filmed is in a state of full or partial nudity and is in a place where one would have a reasonable expectation of privacy, and the person subsequently distributes the photograph or film to another or transmits the image contained in the photograph or film in a manner that allows access to that image via a computer; or

(2) Knowingly disseminates or permits the dissemination by any means, to another person, of a videotape, photograph, or film obtained in violation of subdivision (1) of this subsection or in violation of section 565.253.

2. Invasion of privacy in the first degree is a class D felony.

“As I have said before, I made a personal mistake before I was Governor. I did not commit a crime.

With today’s disappointing and misguided political decision, my confidence in our prosecutorial system is shaken, but not broken. I know this will be righted soon. The people of Missouri deserve better than a reckless liberal prosecutor who uses her office to score political points.

I look forward to the legal remedies to reverse this action. his will not for a moment deter me from doing the important work of the great people of Missouri.”

Let's see how the strategy of attacking the prosecutor plays out for him. If Missouri allows women to serve on juries I believe his goose is cooked.

Unless he gets the venue changed, it will be a St. Louis City jury. Not Greitens demographic.

The population was about 49.2% African American, 43.9% White (42.2% Non-Hispanic White), 2.9% Asian, 0.3% Native American/Alaska Native, and 2.4% reporting two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 3.5% of the population.

Argument: The law only applies to peeping toms who take photographs in bathrooms, locker rooms, etc. It doesn't apply to consensual sexual activity. The key language is that the photographs are taken "in a place where one would have a reasonable expectation of privacy." Sorry, but two people having sex in a private place have a reasonable exxpectation of privacy, so the attempt to narrow the statute will probably fail.

Nice try though. Give an extra $2500 to the law review editor fresh out of law school who came up with the idea.

"The whole point of the sexual activity is to be viewed by the other person..."

Ermm...there are plenty of people who really don't like being seen unclothed--it's NOT the whole point.I think they might want to rethink that statement.

People have sex while clothed, or in the dark. And then there is the old blanket with a hole trick.

Some late night dueling statements:
Source --> http://www.abc17news.com/news/crime/gov ... /705970733

UPDATE 9:14 P.M.: Governor Greitens' lawyer, Edward L. Dowd Jr., has released another statement on the indictment:

“We welcome reviewing this issue with the independent, bipartisan committee of the Missouri House of Representatives.

For 40 years as an attorney for the public and for private litigants, I have never seen anything like this. The charges are unfounded and baseless. The Governor is absolutely innocent. Not only is he presumed innocent – he is innocent. This whole investigation is completely unusual.

This statute has never been used like this in Missouri history. In unprecedented fashion, the Circuit Attorney circumvented the local police force and hired her own investigators - we attempted to meet with the Circuit Attorney and make the Governor available to discuss the issues. They refused. She proceeded to file an indictment that has no facts.

We will work with the committee. We will be deposing witnesses and will be happy to share information with you with the Court’s permission.”

Circuit Attorney's office:
After Gov. Greitens and his lawyer released their statements, the Circuit Attorney's Office of St. Louis followed up with their own:

"Despite the Governor’s personal attacks, the Circuit Attorney believes the courtroom is the appropriate place to argue the facts, not the media. Kim Gardner maintains her unwavering confidence in our system of justice to bring this matter to a fair and just resolution.

The lawyers for Governor Greitens contacted the Circuit Attorney’s Office yesterday to meet for a “secret” meeting next week of counsel only. The Circuit Attorney asked if the Governor would be making a statement that is any different from his public statements. His lawyers said they wanted to share the “human” side of his story. The Circuit Attorney makes charging decisions based upon facts and evidence. Without additional facts and information from the Governor, the meeting was not necessary.

It is not unusual for the Circuit Attorney to conduct an independent investigation. There are many examples over the previous 15 years where the Circuit Attorney conducted Grand Jury investigations without the use of the police department."
And a happy bunny :bunny:

Viewed, perhaps. Recorded or photographed? Not without explicit permission.

Revenge porn is bad. This is a law that criminalizes it. That's good :-)

I know he admitted to the affair a while back, but didn't he deny the bondage/photo thing? Now he's admitting to photographing her but denying it was against her will? Court of law aside, I don't see it helping in the court of public opinion.

Greitens resigns from RGA leadership post
Posted: Feb 23, 2018 10:22 AM CST

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The Republican Governors Association says Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens is stepping down from the group's executive committee following his indictment stemming from an extramarital affair.

The association's executive director, Paul Bennecke, said in a statement Friday that Greitens informed the group that he plans to spend the weekend in Missouri after he was indicted on a charge of felony invasion of privacy. That means he won't attend the group's meetings, which were being held during the National Governor's Association meeting.

Prosecutors allege Greitens took a compromising photo of a woman without her consent during an affair in 2015, before he was elected. Greitens has admitted to the affair but says no crime was committed.

Bennecke's statement said the Republican Governors Association looks "forward to a quick resolution of this issue."
Thoughts and prayers for poor Eric. Thoughts and prayers. :lol:
