ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis circuit court judge ruled on pre-trial motions for Missouri Governor Eric Greitens’ invasion of privacy case.

At Monday’s hearing, Judge Rex Burlison said he had not yet determined if Greitens will face a jury or bench trial. The defense team had asked for a bench trial.

Greitens was accused of taking an unauthorized photo of his mistress during a 2015 affair. The defense team said in court Monday that prosecutors had still failed to produce any evidence of the photo’s existence or that the governor transmitted said image electronically.

Greitens’ trial begins next Monday, May 14.

Meanwhile, Missouri lawmakers have approved a special legislative session beginning May 18 to consider impeaching the governor for allegedly obtaining the donor list of a charity he founded for his gubernatorial run.
