A New York City judge says the head of the International Monetary Fund must remain jailed at least until his next court hearing for attempted rape and other charges.
A tired and grim-looking Dominique Strauss-Kahn appeared Monday before a Manhattan judge.
Prosecutors had asked the judge to hold Strauss-Kahn without bail. His attorneys had suggested that prosecutors set $1 million bail and promised the IMF managing director would remain in New York City.
Strauss-Kahn is accused of attacking a maid who went in to clean his penthouse suite at a luxury hotel near Times Square.
Defense attorney Benjamin Brafman says his client denies any wrongdoing.
Strauss-Kahn faces charges including attempted rape, sex abuse, criminal sex act, unlawful imprisonment and forcible touching. The top count is punishable by five to 25 years in prison.
