Ex-FBI agent hired by Gardner in Greitens case faces March trial

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A former FBI agent hired by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner to help investigate then-Gov. Eric Greitens is scheduled to go on trial next year on charges of perjury and evidence tampering.

Defense attorneys for William Don Tisaby, 67, of Alabama, and special prosecutor Gerard “Jerry” Carmody have agreed to a March 30 trial date, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

Tisaby was hired by Gardner, whose office charged Greitens with invasion of privacy for allegedly taking an unauthorized, compromising photo of a woman during a 2015 affair. The charge against Greitens was later dropped after Greitens agreed to resign.

The indictment charging Tisaby alleges that he lied last year during a deposition in the case. Defense attorney Jermaine Wooten has said Tisaby is “absolutely 100 percent innocent.”
