Paris DSK application support to meet the possible sentence in France

The French government would support the request for Dominique Strauss-Kahn (DSK), U.S. accused of sexual assault and attempted rape, to serve his sentence in France if convicted, said Sunday as Interior Minister, Claude Gueant, a interview on Europe 1 radio. France has a sane with the U.S. that allows a Frenchman convicted in the United States serving his sentence in France.

The former managing director of International Monetary Fund (IMF) Dominique Strauss-Kahn, spent his first night on Saturday outside the prison inmate in a building in lower Manhattan, while intensifying the search for a successor to lead the agency. DSK 62-year-old father of four daughters was charged Thursday with seven counts of sexual abuse and attempted rape of a 32 year old African immigrant, in an incident last Saturday, and that will have to appear before a new court hearing on 6 June.

Those accusations, which he denied when he resigned from the IMF in a letter, carry sentences of 3-25 years, and according to legal sources, if found guilty at trial starting in June may take up to 74 years in prison.
