Of course. That's why we bother to have trials in the first place. Up to that point it's all speculation. I'm not "convinced" either.
If they find her DNA on him, or vice versa, that will pretty much seal his fate. And if the housekeeper is lying, that will be easy to determine too.
Nevertheless, given that he has a history of such actions, until that information is available, Occam's Razor suggests that he likely was at it again.

Apparently, his attorneys are already publicly floating a "it was consensual" defense. If so, then it is a pretty good bet that they expect for there to be DNA evidence.

How? If she was a doing it for pay there would still be evidence of sex. Not sure how one can prove a rape claim is true or not unless their are witness and extreme physical damage. Sadly, false rape charges are common (around 30%). Of course, in this particular case I think past history is a pretty good indicator that rape did occur.
There won’t be a trial. I’m assuming he’s guilty. Accept that as a given for the moment. He will take a plea..probably get 3 years, possibility of parole after 2 years,and then, because of the international ramifications ( like if he got shanked while in Attica) he will be transferred to federal custody and do his time at a mid-level security Fed prison..

Not only is he guilty, but all of France is, too.
