Wearing a dark suit, Strauss-Kahn arrived at the courthouse with his wife, French television journalist Anne Sinclair, walking beside him, arm-in-arm.The Former IMF chief pleaded not guilty to charges he sexually assaulted a New York hotel maid.

Upon entering the court, the couple walked past a throng of media and a large group of hotel workers there in solidarity with the woman who said Strauss-Kahn attacked her. "Shame on you," they chanted.

The hotel maid who former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn is accused of sexually assaulting will testify against him should the case go to trial, a lawyer for the woman said.

"She is going to come into this courthouse, get into that witness stand and tell the world what Dominique Strauss (Kahn) did to her," Kenneth Thompson, a lawyer for the woman, told reporters outside court.

Strauss-Kahn, 62, faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted on charges including attempted rape, sex abuse, a criminal sex act, unlawful imprisonment and forcible touching.
