Known and never-convicted Lothario Dominique Strauss-Kahn skirted rape charges for the second time in two years today, with French prosecutors opting to drop a preliminary gang rape case against him. The investigation stemmed from Strauss-Kahn's ties to global sex parties — for which he still faces up to twenty years in prison for procuring prostitutes — at which one woman claimed she was tied up and sodomized in a Washington, D.C., W Hotel room. Prosecutors announced today that the woman "did not lodge a formal complaint during her interrogation," the Washington Post reports, "and later sent a letter to the prosecutor saying she had consented to paid sex with Strauss-Kahn and did not intend to make a legal complaint against him." But you can see why they might've been confused.
