A judge in St. Louis Monday ruled Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens will stand trial before a jury on charges of invasion of privacy.
CBS affiliate KMOV reports Judge Rex Burlison denied Gretiens’ request for a bench trial, in which a judge alone would hear evidence and render a verdict.
The governor is set for trial on May 14 for the charge of felony invasion of privacy for allegedly taking a photo of a nude or partially nude woman without her permission. Prosecutors alleged Greitens also allowed that image to be transmitted to a computer.
Earlier, the same judge denied Greitens’ motion to move the trial up to April.
