NEW YORK (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The sexual assault charges lodged against former IMF Chief Dominique Strauss-Khan have been dismissed.

The decision to drop the charges in the case, that has attracted global attention, had been widely expected after prosecutors argued that DNA evidence showed sexual contact but not necessarily a forced encounter.

They also see medical findings as inconclusive arguing the creditability of the 33-year-old West African maid who is accusing the French diplomat of attempted rape.

Strauss-Kahn is the former International Monetary Fund chief and French presidential hopeful who has been living in New York.
