In Strauss-Kahn Case, DA Weighs Limited Options

Sunday, 03 Jul 2011 02:36 PM

NEW YORK (AP) — Prosecutors aren't saying what their next move will be now that they have found the New York hotel housekeeper who accused former IMF leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault had a history of lying.

Some legal experts say prosecutors will all but have to abandon the case because the accuser's credibility is seriously dented. But at least one former high-level prosecutor thinks the case isn't doomed.

Prosecutors could go ahead with the current charges, reduce them or try to negotiate a plea deal. It's unclear whether the former International Monetary Fund leader would entertain one.

Or prosecutors could ask a judge to dismiss the case, as Strauss-Kahn's lawyers have called on them to do.

Strauss-Kahn has been released from house arrest. He's due back in court July 18.
