Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn pleads not guilty

Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has pleaded not guilty to charges related to the alleged sexual assault of a housekeeper in a New York City hotel room.

Strauss-Kahn, who was considered a front-runner in France's next presidential race before his arrest, faces seven charges, including criminal sexual acts and sexual abuse.

Authorities say he sexually assaulted a housekeeping employee at New York's Sofitel hotel on May 14.

  1. Anthony's Case Posts

    Anthony's frustration level with her parents, particularly her mother, was rising around the time Caylee disappeared, friend Amy Huizenga testified Tuesday.

    "I remember she told me her mom had told her she was an unfit mother. She was extremely upset about that," Huizenga said.

    But Anthony also was agitated at her mother because she had to cancel plans "fairly frequently" when no one was available to watch her daughter, Huizenga testified.

    In late June, Huizenga said, Anthony told her that she was keeping Caylee away from her parents, as they were having marital problems and were considering divorce, and "she wanted to keep Caylee out of the drama."

    'Fessing up

    On Thursday, Melich described the day Anthony was finally forced to admit her lies, at least in part. On July 16, 2008, Melich worked with Universal Studios to scour the employee database.

    Anthony was in the database, but she hadn't been affiliated with Universal for years. Melich also found no record of Gonzalez or Lewis.

    A Jeffrey Hopkins was found, but never worked for the company at the same time as Anthony. Gonzalez's supposed apartment had also been found vacant.

    Anthony voluntarily met Melich at Universal Studios to discuss the matter. Melich testified Thursday that he watched Anthony try to enter the park without a badge, then attempted to lead him to her office before being forced to admit she didn't have one.

    I'm not going to believe that Strauss-Kahn is guilty until it's absolutely proven.
    I had an experience where a hotel housekeeper accused me of exposing myself to her. I had never even seen her.
    Another time, I paid my hotel bill in cash, received a stamped receipt, and then the bookkeeper (who had pocketed the cash) tried to say I'd stamped it myself. I had people from the police and the mayor's office come.
    A hotel in Los Angeles tried to put a call to the Middle East on a large bill, thinking I wouldn't notice.
    Of course, none of this was true, and it cost me nothing but inconvenience.
    We have courts to catch false accusers.

    Ignore the trolls if they bother you.
    The amount of copy from ACP could indicate that it's only flak from conservatives to prevent a liberal propaganda organ's functioning.

    He could always attack, RUFFNUTT. "Do" is something else.
    I think it was consensual. I could give myself lots of wounds and then claim that one of the trolls did it.
