NEW YORK (AP) — A judge says he will clear the way for former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn to get out of jail in his New York City sex case.
It's not clear, however, when Strauss-Kahn will be released.
State Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus said he would sign a release order Friday for the French economist and politician.
Obus had agreed Thursday to release Strauss-Kahn to house arrest with round-the-clock armed guard if he posted $1 million cash bail plus a $5 million bond.
The plan hit a snag after objections from within the apartment building where Strauss-Kahn was initially to stay. Prosecutors say he would be housed temporarily at another location.
Strauss-Kahn faces attempted rape and other charges. Authorities say he attacked a maid at a Manhattan hotel. He denies the allegations.
