By The Assam Tribune

NEW YORK, May 20 � Hours after he resigned as International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief, jailed Dominique Strauss-Kahn was given bail after being indicted on charges of trying to rape a maid in a swanky New York hotel suite, reports IANS.

But Strauss-Kahn would have to spend another night at New York�s infamous Rikers Island jail before being released sometime Friday. The next court appearance, an arraignment, is slated for June 6.

The state Supreme Court Judge Michael Obus granted the bail on the condition that Strauss-Kahn post $1 million in cash, post a bond for $5 million, surrender his travel documents and submit to home detention with electronic monitoring.

The announcement came shortly after his indictment on seven criminal charges was announced. They are: two counts of criminal sexual act, two counts of sexual abuse, and one count each of attempt to commit rape, unlawful imprisonment and forcible touching.
