Dominique Strauss-Kahn's Defence Team

Benjamin Brafman

Dominique Strauss-Kahn is gathering a crack team of investigators to fight back against charges he sexually assaulted a hotel chambermaid. People hired so far include ex CIA spies, experienced New York criminal investigators and some of the best-connected public relations specialists on the planet.

They have been looking into the accuser's background and that of her siblings, hoping to find out if she has any previous history of making false accusations against men for money. The victim's name has been freely published in Africa and France and journalists and investigators have visited the village in Guinea, West Africa where she was born, the youngest of 6 children.

Strauss-Kahn's legal team is headed by Benjamin Brafman who is known to be thorough and aggressive. He has represented Michael Jackson, Diddy Combs and other celebrities in the past.

Being a devout cynic, I expect this rich, powerful man will somehow escape the rape charge and walk free. Would his spies put pressure on the victim and her family and make her an offer she can't refuse to drop the case or does that only happen in the Sopranos? American justice let OJ go free so will they let it happen again?
