ST. LOUIS (AP) - Former Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens stipulated that there was enough evidence to bring a felony case against him to trial as part of an agreement to dismiss the charge.

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner previously released most the stipulations of the agreement to drop the charge alleging Greitens misused a charity donor list to raise money for his 2016 gubernatorial campaign. As part of that agreement, he resigned as governor last week.

However, the provision where he agreed there was enough evidence for trial had been redacted. The Missouri attorney general's office determined Tuesday the full agreement is an open record that must be made public.

Greitens has denied criminal wrongdoing both on that charge and an invasion-of-privacy charge that another prosecutor is weighing whether to refile.
