Former FBI agent William Tisaby turned himself in on Monday as a perjury indictment against him was unsealed regarding his role in the investigation of Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, the Washington Times reported.
Tisaby was hired by St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner last year to look into allegations that Greitens had taken a compromising photo of his hairdresser in 2015 and threatened to release it publicly if she exposed their affair.
After the case went to trial, Greitens’ attorneys asked police to investigate whether Tisaby had lied under oath in the case. Tisaby had claimed that he didn’t take any notes during his investigation, but a video showed that he had taken notes.
Gardner then dismissed the charges against Greitens when she was called to testify against Tisaby, citing a conflict of interest. Greitens later resigned as governor because of investigations into other matters.
Tisaby faces six counts of perjury and one count of tampering with evidence. Tisaby’s attorney said Tisaby feels he is being “used as a scapegoat” and is a “decent man.”
