Managing Director of the IMF Arrested For Sexual Assault of a New York City Chambermaid

Dominique Strauss-KahnA spokesman for the New York Police Department has stated that Dominique Strauss-Kahn, 62 and the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, was taken off of the 4:40 p.m. flight at JFK bound for Paris and arrested on allegations he sexually assaulted a 32-year old female Sofitel hotel worker. Strauss-Kahn was then transported to the Harlem Headquarters of the Manhattan Special Victims Unit, which investigates rape and other sex crimes, where he was formally charged with committing a criminal sexual act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment. Strauss-Kahn is married to wife number three, Anne Sinclair, who is a leading television journalist in Paris who actually dismisses the charges against her husband. According to Reuters, "Anne Sinclair said on Sunday she had no doubt he would be proved innocent of sexual assault."

Earlier that afternoon, at around 1:00 p.m., the hotel worker stated that she had entered Strauss-Kahn’s $3,000 a night luxury suite to clean. Much to her surprise, Strauss-Kahn came out of the bathroom naked, pushed her onto a bed and assaulted her. Before the hotel worker could escape the room, Strauss-Kahn forced her to perform oral sex stated Paul Browne, Deputy New York City Police Commissioner, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times. Browne also notes that Strauss-Kahn does not possess diplomatic immunity.
