NEW YORK – The lawyer for the woman who accused former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexual assault says he believes prosecutors plan to dismiss some or all of the charges.

Attorney Kenneth Thompson told The New York Times that he received a letter from an assistant district attorney asking to meet with his client Monday, the day before Strauss-Kahn’s next scheduled court appearance. The letter said the purpose was to discuss what would happen in court.

A person familiar with the case confirmed that a meeting was scheduled for Monday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the meeting is private.

Thompson told the Times that he thinks prosecutors wouldn’t have asked to meet unless they planned to give his client bad news. The prosecutor’s office declined to comment.
