Strauss-Kahn Case On Verge of Collapse with Doubts about Accuser

Friday, July 01, 2011

In an exclusive story in The New York Times, investigators have serious doubts about the credibility of the housekeeper who accused the former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, of rape and sexual assault in a Manhattan hotel in May.

It's likely that Strauss-Kahn's bail conditions will be eased and he could be released on his own recognizance as early as this morning.
