  • Strauss-Kahn acquitted in French vice trial

    Dominique Strauss-Kahn was acquitted of sex crime charges on Friday by a French court which ruled the sexual escapades with prostitutes of a man once tipped to be French president did not amount to "aggravated pimping".

    The verdict came four years after sex assault accusations by a New York hotel maid ended his political ambitions and forced him to step down as head of the International Monetary Fund.

    Strauss-Kahn's acquittal by a court in the northern city of Lille on charges of procuring prostitutes -- exposing him to the risk of a 10-year jail sentence -- marked the final episode of legal battle on both sides of the Atlantic.
