PARIS - Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn will not plead guilty to minor charges or cut a deal in the sexual assault case against him in New York, his lawyer said in remarks published on Thursday.

Strauss-Kahn, who was the Socialist Party's leading candidate for the French 2012 presidential election, was arrested by New York police in mid-May on charges of attempting to rape a hotel maid.

"We will not negotiate on any point and will not plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge in this case," William Taylor was quoted as saying in Le Figaro newspaper.
