AP source: NY DA likely to drop Strauss-Kahn case

NEW YORK (AP) -- A person familiar with the case says New York prosecutors are likely to drop their sexual assault case against former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

The person says prosecutors probably will tell his accuser Monday that they won't pursue the case because of doubts about her credibility and a lack of evidence proving a forced sexual encounter. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss matters not yet made public.

A Strauss-Kahn lawyer didn't immediately respond to an email message Sunday, after the New York Post first reported prosecutors' likely decision. The Manhattan District Attorney's office declined to comment.

Strauss-Kahn has been accused of trying to rape the woman, a hotel maid. He denies the charges.
