NEW YORK — The maid accusing Dominique Strauss-Kahn of assaulting her in a Manhattan hotel room is speaking out publicly for the first time.

Nafissatou Diallo, pictured at left with ABC's Robin Roberts, tells Newsweek she wants the former IMF leader to go to jail. She alleges he sexually assaulted her while she was working at a Midtown hotel in May. Her photo is on the cover of the magazine.

ABC News says it will carry an exclusive broadcast interview with Diallo on three of its programs, starting Monday.

She told the network she never wanted to be in the public eye but had no choice, amid questions about her credibility.

Lawyers for Strauss-Kahn told ABC that the interview was "an unseemly circus" designed to inflame public opinion.
