  DSK appeared in court today with his billionaire wife/enabler, Anne Sinclair by his side. À la Hillary Clinton and Tammy Wynette, Anne is standin’ by her man, creepy deviant degenerate pervert that he is!

  ’Lust’ is not a crime, say Strauss-Kahn lawyers
  ”Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers have said their client, placed under formal investigation Monday for alleged involvement in a prostitution ring, was being hounded for “the offence of lust” which is “not forbidden in the penal code”.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers told reporters on Tuesday that charges against him for his alleged involvement in a prostitution ring were “hollow, empty and overblown”.

Judges handling the case are investigating allegations that Strauss-Kahn, 62, “helped, assisted or protected prostitution” – a crime punishable by up to 20 years in prison. In order to establish this, they will seek to prove that Strauss-Kahn knew that participants at orgies attended in Paris and Washington were paid to be there.

Prostitution itself is not illegal
In France, prostitution on its own is not illegal unless it causes a public disturbance. However, procuring for sex is a punishable offence.
  The lawyer maintained that “certainly, Dominique Strauss-Kahn has attended a certain number of parties with women, libertine parties with female friends and women who were friends of his friends.”
‘A crime of lust’
Leclerc added: “You can say what you like about that on the moral level, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s not against the criminal law. He is being reproached for a kind of crime of lust. He’s being attacked over his libertine behaviour.”
  Even if his lawyers succeed, Strauss Kahn’s woes will not be at an end. On Wednesday a civil case against him is due to open in New York brought by Nafissatou Diallo, the New York hotel maid who accused him of raping her in 2011.

Looks like someone is set to be relentless at bringing Strass-Kahn down...he needs to be.

Not surprised the wife is ‘Standing with her man” ...perks are hard to give up when one is accustomed to them 24/7 regardless of the source they come from....I’m sure she’s had her fair share of “pleasures” along the way as well.

Always a united front is better than not in these cases. ..and they both stand to gain by remaining so.
