In 2011, Dominique Strauss-Kahn was forced out of his position as chief of the International Monetary Fund (IMF; no, not Peter Grave’s Impossible Mission Force) after a maid in a New York City hotel room accused him of sexual assault. Nothing ever came of that investigation, but where there’s smoke, there is usually fire. In this case, fire takes the form of crazy sex orgies at a hotel room. Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been charged with “aggravated pimping” due to his involvement in a sex party ring. The parties took place at the Carlton Hotel in Lille, France; aggravated pimping means that there was more than one prostitute at the party.
Police investigated the parties for a staggering two years, and in February 2012, police interrogated Strauss-Kahn for 32 hours about his role in the proceedings. Strauss-Kahn has not denied participating in the orgies, but he does deny knowing that the women were prostitutes. If convicted, Strauss-Kahn faces up to 10 years in jail and a fine of 1.2 million Euros.
Meanwhile, aggravated pimping is one of the funniest court charges ever. It sounds like something the tae kwon do Olympian/brothel owner would get involved in, like if he had to assault someone for not paying one of his girls.
