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. Strauss-Kahn has stepped down from his position while the IMF investigates the charges, which he has consistently denied. According to law enforcement officials who spoke with Times, there are questions surrounding the asylum application of the housekeeper, as well possible links to criminal activities, including money laundering and drug dealing. 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.

How hard is it to sit confined in a multimillion dollar apartment? For a first-hand account, we speak to Nicholas Casale, former detective for the NYPD. Nicholas was assigned to watch over Bernie Madoff when he was under house arrest.
