DSK hires criminal lawyer who defended Michael Jackson of sexual harassment

The managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Dominique Strauss-Kahn, he now expects a long legal process to defend his innocence against accusations of a young waitress in New York that has been identified only after a police lineup as the alleged assailant who tried to rape her in a room in a luxury hotel in New York on Saturday.

In a system of law and democracy every person is innocent until proven otherwise. However, from now on the image and reputation of the French director of IMF has already been seriously tarnished, and could be the beginning of the end of his political career to have predicted to back the international organization in Washington where he receives an annual fee of around € 500,000 gross per year.

In this way of defense before the U.S. courts and before the New York attorney who has decided to postpone taking the accused statement today to gather more physical evidence against Strauss-Kahn, the senior manager will have at his side to two of the best criminal lawyers Americans: William Taylor and Benjamin Brafman.

A week ago, the French manager of 62 years had no idea that the ghosts that pursued him in the past regarding his role as "seductive and unfaithful womanizer" (description by his personal biographer), it took him two years ago recognize that parallel had a sexual relationship with one of her colleagues from Hungary to the IMF, now you just come back stage in the international body and preparing your choice socialist French presidential elections in 2012.

A DSK (an acronym which is popularly known in France and describe your name and surname compound) he waited for his wife, French journalist Anne Sinclair, on Saturday night in Paris. But he never came DSK flight from New York he was arrested on board the plane after John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

After his arrest, DSK had time to call her two favorite lawyers who had worked for the IMF's managing director in the past. William Taylor, 62 years old and well known criminal in high business and the fortunes of New York and lover of French culture (he speaks French in their meetings with the French community living in New York), received a call DSK on Friday, a day before the allegations that Strauss-Kahn blame.

He had asked about the controversy that had arisen in some French media and Americans regarding the publication of the high costs of the suits, perfumes and ties. DSK consulted with Taylor because he was worried it was known publicly that acquires exclusive clothing for fashion houses "could damage my image as leader of the IMF, but also possible Socialist candidate" in the party primaries to be held in France next month June, as published by the French daily Le Figaro.

Indeed, William Taylor in 2008 advised him in his defense when he was accused of having sex with one of his assistants of Hungarian origin and economic reports were made to DSK. In that year the lawyer Jean Veil, a close friend of Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his wife Anne Sinclair, was the one who recommended the services of William Taylor.

Taylor is a well known lawyer and partner at law firm Zuckerman, Spaeder and considered by the Legal Times published one of the top ten criminal lawyers in Washington. The other attorney is Benjamin Drafman DSK, DSK and Taylor also 62, is among the most respected lawyers in New York and who defended Michael Jackson when he was accused of sexually assaulting a young child.
