IMF’s Strauss-Kahn Makes New Bid for Bail in Assault Case

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who resigned yesterday as head of the International Monetary Fund, asked a second judge to release him on bail over charges that he sexually assaulted and attempted to rape a hotel maid in Manhattan.

Strauss-Kahn has been at New York’s Rikers Island jail complex since he was ordered held in custody at his arraignment May 16 before Judge Melissa Jackson. In a filing yesterday in state court, Strauss-Kahn, a French citizen, said he didn’t intend to leave the U.S. without court permission and waived his extradition rights.
