Strauss-Kahn's Lawyer Says Meeting With DA Was Productive

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

Defense lawyers for ex-International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn said they had a productive meeting with prosecutors as they left the District Attorney's office in Lower Manhattan on Wednesday.

Attorney Benjamin Brafman declined to comment further or answer questions from reporters as he left Wednesday's meeting.

Prosecutors are rethinking the case against the French politician after the credibility of the woman who accused him of attempting to rape her at a Midtown hotel was called into question because she was not truthful about her background and the aftermath of the alleged attack.

The charges, which include attempted rape, have not been dropped.

The 32-year-old hotel housekeeper from Guinea told investigators she was allegedly attacked by Strauss-Kahn when she went to clean suite 2806 at the Sofitel Hotel on May 14.
