Portions of Greitens' Deal With Gardner Unredacted

The governor knew there was enough to mount a case

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) -- Eric Greitens' deal with the prosecutor admitted Kim Gardner's office had the evidence to prosecute him on the felony computer tampering charge.

What was first a blacked-out part of the deal has now been released and un-redacted by Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner.

It shows Greitens and his lawyers conceded the state had enough evidence to mount a case against him on the charge he illegally downloaded a donor list from The Mission Continues, the veterans charity he founded, for campaign purposes. It doesn't admit guilt, just that the the evidence was there.

Another clause now made public asked that the admission there was enough evidence be kept sealed, unless Greitens commits a new offense or talks about it himself publicly.
