ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Attorneys for Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens say in a court filing that a grand jury has not been presented with evidence indicating that Greitens transmitted a compromising cellphone photo of a woman with whom he had an affair -- a key element in determining if he committed a felony.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the argument that the grand jury never heard evidence that a felony was committed came in a Monday request to move up the trial to April 3 from May 14. Prosecutors oppose expediting the trial.

A St. Louis grand jury in February indicted Greitens on fourth-degree invasion of privacy. Greitens has admitted to the affair in 2015, before he was elected, but denies criminal wrongdoing. He has not said if he took a photo.
