"The problem is that the DA's office indicted Mr. Strauss-Kahn quickly, before investigating the credibility of their only witness to the alleged event."

DC criminal defense attorney David Benowitz, founding partner of Price Benowitz LLP, examines the high profile case of Dominique Strauss-Kahn as the charges against him appear to be collapsing. Reports in today’s press say that investigators have discovered evidence that calls into serious question the credibility of the alleged victim.

In an article discussing the potential collapse of this case and the evidence uncovered about the key witness, Mr. Benowitz considers what lessons could be learned from this high profile case. Mr. Benowitz believes that one “...problem is that the DA's office indicted Mr. Strauss-Kahn quickly, before investigating the credibility of their only witness to the alleged event."

Mr Benowitz’s article goes on to ask whether the treatment of Strauss-Kahn was due to his high profile position as head of the IMF and whether others, arrested on similar charges, would have warranted the same level of resources allocated to investigate the only witness to the alleged sexual assault.
