Lawyer: Strauss-Kahn's alleged victim's story never changed

July 1, 2011 19:20

NEW YORK - The woman who accused former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault has never wavered in her story and still maintains that she was attacked, her lawyer said on Friday.

"The victim from Day One described a violent sexual assault. ... She has never once changed a single thing about that account. The District Attorney knows that. That was true the day it happened. That was true today," lawyer Kenneth Thompson told a news conference.

Strauss-Kahn was released without bail on Friday after a dramatic court hearing where the sexual assault case against him appeared to shift in his favor.

"The victim here may have made some mistakes, but that doesn't mean she's not a rape victim," Thompson said.
