A prosecutor stated that the alleged victim has provided a detailed account of the alleged assault that was corroborated by a sexual-assault examination, that the alleged victim picked Strauss-Kahn out of a lineup, and that DNA evidence recovered at the site was being tested. Strauss-Kahn did not enter a plea but his lawyer has said he denies all ...
