Strauss-Khan: Don't "Rape" African Alleged Sex Attack Victim With Slanderous Defense

Every suspect and accused is entitled to the presumption of innocence until proved guilty.

This applies to all suspects and accused, whether people of modest means or of stately positions. Such is the case against Dominique Strauss-Khan, chief of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

The seven-count criminal charges against Strauss-Khan, includes rape, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment of an employee of the Sofitel New York Hotel in Manhattan; they are grotesque in nature when the complaint by the government is reviewed. He is alleged to have: forced his genitalia into the mouth of the victim, an immigrant from West Africa and hotel employee who had come to clean his room; alleged to have forced his hand into her crotch; alleged to have touched her breasts, and; alleged to have engaged in “anal sexual conduct”  with the alleged victim “by forcible compulsion,” according to the complaint.

However, even more grotesque, and even uglier, than the charges against the Frenchman is his implied defense as suggested by one of his high-priced lawyers, Benjamin Brafman, whose past clients have included Sean P. Combs.
