Disgraced IMF Chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been granted a 1-million dollars bail and home detention in what is seen as a reprieve to his already damaged repute.
Strauss Khan rape case took a new turn when Judge Michael Obus has granted the disgraced IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn a $1-million bail and a home detention slap.
Strauss-Kahn bail came after several attempts by his lawyer Benjamin. The bail is a great sign of confidence that the accused may not be guilty of the offense.
In the ruling by judge Michael Obus, the defense sought to have the accused be available for all hearings hence set the home detention condition.
The bail requires Strauss-Kahn stay at a Manhattan apartment belonging to his wife, Anne Sinclair. The conditions also sought that Sinclair be there with him.
The ruling was a reprieve to the accused who has been under suicide watch in jail. Strauss-Kahn rape case has drawn international media attention though the woman raped by Strauss-Kahn has not been disgraced.
However, it has been revealed that the 32-year old woman raped by Strauss-Kahn is from Guinea and is a mother of a 15-year old girl.
