Topic: Strauss-Kahn awaits Friday vice trial verdict

By Brian Love PARIS (Reuters) - A French court rules on Friday whether former IMF boss Dominique Strauss-Kahn is guilty of sex crimes and if the man once tipped to become president of his country goes to prison. Four years after sex assault accusations by a New York hotel maid ended his political ambitions and a stellar career as head of the International Monetary Fund, Strauss-Kahn learns whether another vice case in his home country has led to his conviction. The 66-year-old, who settled financially with Sofitel maid Nafissatou Diallo after New York prosecutors abandoned criminal charges in 2011, stands accused in France in a totally separate case of instigating the organization of orgies with prostitutes.
