Strauss-Kahn charged in alleged prostitution ring


(CNN) -- Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was charged in France on Monday with "aggravated pimping" for his alleged participation in a prostitution ring, prosecutors said.

He is not allowed to have contact with other people involved in the investigation, nor is he permitted to talk to the media about the case. Strauss-Kahn was released under a 100,000-euro bail, according to prosecutors.

Earlier in the day, he was questioned by a judge about his alleged involvement in the ring. The meeting was initially scheduled for Wednesday.

A spokesperson for the judge told CNN it was the judge's decision to change the date, but did not say why the decision was made.

The charge alleges involvement in the habitual operation of a prostitution racket. Specifically, "aggravated' means on a regular and involved basis, and "pimping" means actually facilitating a prostitution operation, not just being a customer.

To bad he didn't commit (allegedly) that in the States.

He could have become a rap star.
Those bankers are evil, just like the Beav says.
