NY judge agrees to new DSK house arrest location

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York court officials say a new, more permanent location has been found for Dominique Strauss-Kahn's house arrest on sexual assault charges.

The Office of Court Administration says the judge received a phone call from all parties Wednesday and a new location was agreed upon. Spokesman David Bookstaver did not say where the new housing is or when the former leader of the International Monetary Fund will move. He is free on $1 million bail and under house arrest temporarily in an apartment in lower Manhattan.

The one-time French presidential contender was jailed for about a week in New York City after he was arrested May 14. A hotel maid says he sexually assaulted her in his hotel room. His attorneys have said Strauss-Kahn is not guilty.
