No plea deal, no guilty plea, attorney for Strauss-Kahn says

Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn won't accept any plea bargain and "won't plead guilty to anything," William Taylor, an attorney representing him in a sexual assault case, said Thursday.

Strauss-Kahn, 62, is accused of having attempted to rape the maid when she entered his suite at the Sofitel off Times Square on May 14 to clean it.

On Wednesday, attorneys for Strauss-Kahn said that the defense team had a "constructive meeting" with prosecutors, who maintained that they are not ready to drop sexual abuse and attempted rape charges even after questions were raised about the accuser's credibility.

"The investigative process is continuing, and no decisions have been made," said Manhattan District Attorney spokeswoman Erin Duggan.

The two-hour meeting came just days after prosecutors disclosed credibility issues regarding the hotel maid who accused Strauss-Kahn of sexually attacking her.

      Chris:

      All men lie too. What you just said only proves that there are men in this world (like you) who have to be kept in prison to prevent them from destroying the fabric of society through repeated attacks on defenseless mothers, sisters, and daughters.

      All judges lie, except for the guilty part.

    An unauthorized trip by DSK to the French Riviera will be in his best interest. He will voluntarily return after his accuser is tried by the feds for money laundering, tax evasion, and then deported. Her new charges filed while in Guinea will get her gang banged again and possibly experience a second female genital cutting(FGC).
