Strauss-Kahn to be charged within the hour-NYPD

NEW YORK, May 14 (Reuters) - The New York Police Department anticipates charging IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn with a criminal sexual act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment within the hour, a police spokesman said on Saturday.

“We anticipate he is going to be formally arrested and charged in an hour,” NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said around 11:15 p.m. EDT (0315 GMT Sunday).

“He will be charged with a criminal sexual act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment.”

Strauss-Kahn was taken into custody at JFK airport earlier on Saturday over an alleged sexual assault of a hotel maid in New York City.
