Prosecutors dismiss criminal charge against Missouri governor

Prosecutors dismiss criminal charge against Missouri governorSt. Louis prosecutors on Monday dismissed the criminal invasion of privacy charge against Missouri Governor Eric Greitens before his trial got under way but said they would refile the case, which grew out of a sex scandal involving the governor. The office of Circuit Attorney for the City of St. Louis, Kim Gardner, said it will decide to either pursue a special prosecutor or appoint one of her assistants to handle the case. Prosecutors said they dropped the charge after state Circuit Court Judge Rex Burlison granted Greitens' request to call Gardner as a witness.
