It’s the media frenzy encompassing both sides of the East Coast as the trial of former French Finance Minister, Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his accuser, a hotel maid working at the Sofitel hotel near Times Square continues.
Leaving his hotel on May 14, Strauss-Kahn headed to JFK airport where he would fly home to France and eventually announce his presidential candidacy against Nicolas Sarkozy; however, Strauss-Kahn did not fly home that day. While waiting for his flight, Strauss-Kahn called the Sofitel Hotel to see if he had left his mobile phone. The hotel asked about his whereabouts and soon enough, officials were at JFK arresting Strauss-Kahn for his alleged rape of a Sofitel employee.
Since the trial has begun, Kahn continues to plead innocent; however, the Associated Press revealed this week that DNA testing found on the maid’s uniform was a match for Kahn, linking him and the maid for the first time in the trial. Strauss-Kahn’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman commented on the DNA find, stating the evidence “Will not be consistent with a forcible encounter.” The evidence could be used as a defense for Kahn, showing that the sexual act was consensual.
Is Strauss-Kahn Innocent?
Dominque Strauss-Kahn has been described as a loving family man and with his aspirations for French presidency, why would Kahn jeopardize his political career?
More DNA testing continues, but in the meantime, the accuser, the shaken-up Sofitel maid, shares her story of the sexual abuse she faced.
