Topic: Ex-IMF head Strauss-Kahn testifies in French sex ring trial


By Alexandria Sage LILLE, France (Reuters) - Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former IMF chief who was tipped to become French president before being accused of sexual assault by a New York maid in 2011, will testify to a criminal court on Tuesday over his alleged role in sex parties with prostitutes. The allegations that he participated in a French sex ring have dogged the once prominent Socialist ever since criminal charges were dropped against him in the New York case and he settled a civil case with chambermaid Nafissatou Diallo. In Strauss-Kahn's case, it is alleged that he allowed his rented apartment to be used for sex parties involving prostitutes and that the parties were organized for his benefit. Strauss-Kahn, who says his political career is over, risks as much as 10 years in prison and a fine of up to 1.5 million euros ($1.72 million) if convicted.
