Dominique Strauss-Kahn's DNA sample has been matched to material found on the clothing of the maid who claims that he sexually assaulted her, NBC New York reports.
Traces of the ex-IMF chief's sperm were reportedly found on the maid's dress. The New York Post reports that the NYPD notified French authorities of the development on Sunday.
DSK, as he is widely known in France, was arrested on May 14 on charges of "a criminal sexual act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment." It was reported that a maid entered his New York City hotel room where he forced her to perform oral sex.
Originally held at Rikers Prison, Strauss-Kahn was released on a $1 million dollar cash bail. According to the AP:
During his time at the Empire Building, at least one armed guard will be watching him at all times, and he will have to wear an ankle bracelet. His apartment's exterior doors will be outfitted with alarms and video cameras, on orders from the judge who granted bail.
"This is intended to be temporary, meaning a few days, and in the meantime, efforts would be made to arrange for another suitable residence," state Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus said.
According to the Post, "Strauss-Kahn's defense team has said the alleged assault may have been consensual."
