After a three-month legal battle in the US, Dominique Strauss-Kahn returns to France.
The former IMF chief and his wife arrived at Charles de Gaulle airport surrounded by a large security detail.
Dozens of TV crews followed him to his central Paris home.
The arrest of the once likely presidential candidate on charges he raped a hotel maid shocked the nation.
A New York court dropped the case after prosecutors told the judge the maid had lied.
But Strauss-Kahn's reputation suffered as details about his private life became public.
He also still faces a civil case in New York and an accusation of attempted rape by a female journalist in France.
