A press release from special prosecutor and Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker:

Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announces decision in Greitens case
For Immediate Release
June 8, 2018

Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today that after a diligent review of evidence, she is declining to file further charges in the Eric Greitens case referred to her office last month.

Baker’s office received a file from the Circuit Attorney of St. Louis on May 22, 2018. Since then, she and a team of assistant prosecutors have exhausted potential leads in examining submitted evidence and enlisting the Missouri Highway Patrol to investigate issues in this case.

As of today, with a statute of limitations set to expire this weekend, Baker stated that her office did not have sufficient evidence to consider filing new charges in the Greitens case. Still missing was corroborating evidence for an invasion of privacy case, Baker noted.

There it is.
