Just announced on TV . . . no article yet
This warrants Breaking News how??
he’ll walk across the bridge into Mexico, and be FREE
Tell him to be sure and say hello to Roman Polanski!!
Great. A Roman Polanski for this generation!
STRAUSS-KAHN: Brrring... brrrrinnnng......
STRAUSS-KAHN: Hey Roman, it’s DSK!
STRAUSS-KAHN: They just granted me bail.
POLANSKI: NO WAY!!!!
(They both start snickering)
STRAUSS-KAHN: So, can I crash on your sofa tomorrow?
STRAUSS-KAHN: They’ll never find me there.
(They both start snickering)
Big mistake. If I were writing this movie, he would figure out a way to escape back to France, where he would be untouchable. I wonder how you say “nanner, nanner, nanner” in French. I hope they have thought to freeze all of his assets.
I feel so sorry for his victim. I can imagine all the pressure that will be put on her to recant. The French probably have a line on her family back in Africa..this guy is ruthless. She has to stay locked away and he gets to roam Manhattan and enjoy whores at his apartment.
If the victim has AIDS, this rutting pig may not get off so easy.
You have to look real hard to find a judge that stupid.
now he’s just an International Mo Fo.
That was my thought.
It’s news, and it was just announced. If that is not breaking news, I’m not sure what is.
He’ll be back in France in no time at all. I heard the bail was $1 million - he could spend that on breakfast and not notice it.
Poor lady. If only I knew where to send her my sympathy. I’m so worried this creep will abscond and New Yorkers - again - will hold the bag for bad Europeans who have always used this great city as a sewer and whorehouse. If we could get the UN OUT of New York (I know, I know, he wasn’t with the UN), we would be so much safer.
I she gone? Hmm. His wife is RICH, he married well......so I would guess it depends on how rich she is....he may need that million $ bail money to live on if she throws him out. It will be interesting to watch it all unfold. There has been speculation that France could give him new papers to travel on, so the loss of his passport might not mean much.
I’m gussing some judge in some court somewhere caved in to the pressure and enourmous power of the French who claim this was a set-up.
$1 million dollar bond? What a disgrace! Someone either high up in the adminstration - or Mr. Bill Clinton himself - is interfering in this crime.
A cool million was offered by his attorney.
correction is HE gone...
ha! I just stole that!
Lots of holes in the story—it’s no way certain
that the maid is telling the truth (anymore than
it’s certain that DSK is telling the truth).
The maid apparently changed the time of the supposed
assault after she learned that DSK checked out of the hotel before that.
Then there are questions about what her time/key card shows; whether DSK was alone or not (no guards, secretaries?); and so on.
IOW, so far all we can know is that there is an allegation (admittedly against someone I would like to see guilty).
I personally don’t think he has anything to worry about. I mean, if you or I get arrested for something like this, it’s a sure bet we’ll end up providing conjugal enjoyment to a big guy named Bubba. Someone with this guy’s money can pay for lawyers who know how to select juries and how to manipulate the juries they select. You’ve also got money to grease palms and buy off your accuser. So it wouldn’t surprise me if he stays and takes his chances.
Well, we got a million from France, what’s the complaint? Mo moollah fo foo stams, “climate change” and AIDS cure.
He probably has more than one passport. Certainly a normal one and a diplomatic passport to use on business. Then a spare to keep in a secret place.
I’ll be even money the he skips bail and heads to France.
Security will be asleep and his bracelet will be tied to the bed post. Wife will know nothing..
Otherwise he shoots himself...
Smells like a setup to me. I'm uncomfortable with this whole thing.
He won’t have a jury trial. He will plead out or have a bench trial. He will do time if he stays in the US - less time than he should, but he’s already done more time than he can bear. He’s a flight risk.
Ah, a freeper who has been here since 2005 and doesn't have a clue who people outside Hollywood and E! are. Sad really.
When news involving powerful international finance figures occurs, this guy wants it to go away.
Responsibility 2nd, or never or however much you hate that idea there is no Jlo or Britney Spears here.
You seem to have wondered onto the wrong site in a brain fog.
Will he be confined to a hotel room with an ankle brace tracker?
she does not ...she was subletting an apt that the building has apts for people with aids or hiv diagnosis.
I am sure money changed hands.
The DA and the NYC Police chief wouldn’t go out on alimb for a maid with a guy like this if they didn’t have a really good case!
Bubba: you want to play house with me tonight?
Bubba: you want to be the Mama or the Papa?
DSK: I’ll be the Papa!
Bubba: OK Papa, come over here and bendover for Mama!
He is the textbook definition of a flight risk.
You sure have a lot of faith in NYC bureaucrats. High profile cases are what they live for. Bogus sex charges are how we got Janet Reno.
A different judge rules today he is allowed out on bail. Not the same judge who refused to allow bail the other day.
As a woman, who believes rapists should be castrated with dull knives and left to die where they fall, I have to go against my natural inclination here.
The ‘victim’ is a muslim. He’s a ‘big shot’ and can be brought down by this claim. Khan is a Hindu/Sikh name.
Bottom line- I wouldn’t believe a Muslim who said they were on fire if their headrag was in flames.
A New York judge granted bail for the embattled former IMF chief who stands accused of sexually assaulting a maid at a posh Manhattan hotel.
Dominique Strauss-Khan was granted $1 million bail and home detention. His arraignment hearing on his indictment is set for June 6.
His attorney had told a New York court he was an 'honorable man' who would not skip bail. He also said the arrangement agreed upon will cost his client $200,000 a month.
What does this mean it will cost his client $200,000 a month?
Watch and see who replaces him as director of the IMF and whether any significant policy changes are made.
should I interpret from this that the armed security will be private? if so, thats scary......
It was $1 million cash, PLUS a $5 million, and around the clock monitering.
Since he is not charged with a capital crime, he has a right to reasonable bail; and the terms are reasonable.
First....what are the chances he would do this??
They act like she's sweet, demure, the girl next door....just trying to make a living...kinda like Chrystal Magnum
I'm sure it's crappy work but I'm also pretty sure she's VERY WELL paid...it's NYC and that's not a Motel 6.
Home confinement and around-the-clock monitering. Electronic monitering is part of that.
Because he is a high-profile person, he won’t be going anywhere.
