The woman who accused Missouri’s governor of taking nude photographs of her without her consent will testify at his trial, which begins next week, ABC News reported.

Gov. Eric Greitens is accused of taking a nonconsensual nude photograph of a woman he was having an affair with, while she was tied up. He allegedly threatened to use the picture against her if she divulged their affair.

In court filings, the woman is identified only by her initials, K.S., The New York Times reported. She is considered a crime victim by the state.

Lawyers for the Republican governor argued that the woman’s allegations were tainted, but a St. Louis Circuit Court judge rejected those arguments on Monday.

K.S.’s testimony stated that she based her claim that he took the photo on seeing a flash through a blindfold she was wearing and hearing what sounded like a cellphone camera. Greitens has denied that a photo was taken.

Greitens is also currently facing a separate felony charge for allegedly illegally obtaining a fundraising list from a charity he founded.

While Greitens has admitted to the affair — and said in a January statement that he and his wife Sheena have “emerged stronger” after it— he has pleaded not guilty and has refused calls to resign by a bipartisan group of state leaders.
