Strauss-Kahn Sex Charges Dropped
NEW YORK - What started more than one hundred days ago has finally come to conclusion for former IMF chair Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Strauss-Kahn is heading home to France. New York Judge Michael Obus dropped the sexual charges filed against Strauss-Kahn on Tuesday.
The maid, Nafissatou Diallo, attempted one last defense for her case by requesting a special prosecutor, however, the court of appeals denied the request within hours.
Prosecutors say Diallo's story had flaws and didn't match up with what she had originally said. Diallo also has had a past with lying to authorities. She claimed a group of men sexually assaulted her in her hometown of Guinea years ago. Diallo has not spoken out about the charges yet.
