Strauss-Kahn Out on Bail

    French former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn leaves at the back of a car after being heard by judges on March 26, 2012 in the northern city of Lille, as he faces an investigation in France over an unfolding prostitution and corruption scandal. Strauss-Kahn was charged today over alleged involvement in a vice ring that procured prostitutes, his lawyers said. Disgraced Strauss-Kahn, 62, considered a favourite for the French presidency, quit the IMF in May 2011, after he was arrested in NYC following charges by a hotel chambermaid that he sexually assaulted.

    DSK is back on the town. The former head of the International Monetary Fund is out on bail after being charged with “aggravated pimping” in a French prostitution ring. Dominique Strauss-Kahn was one of eight people charged in the case. DSK’s lawyer says his client didn’t know the women in question were prostitutes, and he didn’t pay them for their services. It’s a busy week for his lawyers—they’ll also be in New York courts Wednesday battling a civil suit filed by the housekeeper who alleged that Strauss-Kahn sexually assaulted her in a hotel room.
