From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
ST. LOUIS, Mo. — A former FBI agent, William Don Tisaby, 66, of Trussville, has been indicted on six counts of perjury and one count of tampering with evidence, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Tisaby had been hired by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly M. Gardner to investigate claims that Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens had committed invasion of privacy by threatening to make public partially nude photos of his hairdresser.
The case against Greitens was eventually dropped, but he resigned from office. Greitens, a former Navy SEAL, served about 18 months of his term as governor before his resignation.
The indictment of Tisaby was handed down on Friday and unsealed Monday, according to the Post-Dispatch.
The indictment accuses Tisaby, among other things, of lying under oath during a deposition. He is accused saying he did not take notes when interviewing the hairdresser and did not receive information from Gardner, the St. Louis Circuit Attorney. A video of the interview later surfaced, which showed Tisaby taking notes and referring documents.
Tisaby was released on his own recognizance and told not to leave Alabama except to attend trial in St. Louis.
