A former FBI agent hired to investigate Eric Greitens, a Navy SEAL veteran, governor of Missouri, has been charged with damages.
William Tisaby was accused of six counts of perjury and a counter of manipulation with physical evidence in charge that was unsealed Monday. He had been examined by a special lawyer accused of looking at allegations that he lied during a 2008 hearing.
Tisaby, 66, was employed by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, after Greitens, a 45-year-old Republican, admitted having an affair with a hairdresser in 201
The accusation says that Tisaby lied under oath about "cases that could significantly affect the course or the result of the Greitens case." He was accused of manipulating evidence of allegedly holding documents in the case of Greitens defense lawyers.
Last May, prosecutors lost a crime of invasion of privacy against Greitens, a former Rhodes teacher. Despite this, Greitens ended up abandoning in June last year.
Former lawyer Scott Rosenblum tore off prosecutors and accused them of misdemeanor in last year's highly publicized case.
"Eric Greitens still had to be governor," Rosenblum said. "This was a misleading prosecution from the beginning. It is one of the worst cases of prosecution I have seen in my 36-year practice criminal defense law."
Gardner's office is continuing to investigate the specialist adviser.
