NEW YORK - Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn will plead not guilty on Monday to charges he tried to rape a New York hotel maid, an accusation that has wrecked his chance of becoming France's next president.

Praised for his role tackling the 2007-09 global financial crisis and attempts to keep Europe's debt crisis under control, Strauss-Kahn, 62, is facing up to 25 years in prison if convicted on charges of a criminal sexual act, attempted rape, sex abuse, unlawful imprisonment and forcible touching.

His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, told Reuters that Strauss-Kahn will plead not guilty to the charges in New York Supreme Court before Judge Michael Obus on Monday.
