KANSAS CITY, Mo. — 41 Action News has obtained the un-redacted dismissal agreement former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens made with prosecutors in order to get one charge against him dropped.

In the original document released to the media, two items on the agreement were blacked out. 

The un-redacted version shows that those items state that Greitens admits prosecutors had sufficient evidence against him to take the case to a jury.



Greitens was charged with computer tampering. He was accused of using a donor list from a non-profit he founded to fundraise for his 2016 campaign for governor.

Greitens resigned from office on June 1 but maintained that he did nothing wrong. 

He remains under investigation for allegations that he attempted to blackmail a woman he admitted to having an affair with using a compromising photo. Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker was selected as a special prosecutor in the case.
