According to CBS News:

Prosecutors in St. Louis dropped a felony invasion-of-privacy charge against Greitens earlier this [month] that accused him of taking a nonconsensual photo of an almost entirely naked woman with whom he acknowledged having an affair in 2015. Prosecutors have said the charge could be refiled.

Greitens also faces another felony charge alleging he tampered with computer data by disclosing the donor list of The Mission Continues to his political fundraiser in 2015 without the permission of the St. Louis-based charity he founded.

Greitens has said he would not quit over the allegations.
