DNA tests said to link Strauss-Kahn to alleged sex assault

Sources says former IMF leader’s DNA matches material found on hotel maid’s shirt


The results from DNA tests on Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former head of the International Monetary Fund, match his genetic code with material found on the shirt of the hotel maid he allegedly assaulted, according to sources for the Associated Press. The sources were not authorized to speak publicly about the case, and spoke on condition of anonymity. Benjamin Brafman, the lawyer representing Strauss-Kahn, declined to comment Monday. Strauss-Kahn, 62, is now living in a luxury Manhattan high-rise with his wife after being released on bail from prison and put under house arrest on Friday. He is accused of attacking a 32-year-old housekeeper at a New York hotel on May 14. His charges include rape and sexual abuse.
