'Was lucky that sex with Strauss-Kahn didn't ended in rape'

The French journalist who accused Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexually assaulting her, has said that she was lucky enough that the sexual encounter with the former International Monetary Fund chief didn't ended in a rape.
 
During a French television interview, Tristane Banon explained why she filed a formal complaint in July alleging that Strauss-Kahn tried to rape her in a Paris in 2003.
 
"My light-heartedness: I lost it on February 11th 2003," the Daily Mail quoted Banon, as saying.
 
"This man made me come to a flat...for an interview. He double locked, leaving the keys in the door. Very quickly, we were fighting and it turned bad. If I had not been very lucky, it would have ended in a rape," she said.
 
"When I see the way in which I'm crushed today, I say to myself that if I had reported it at the time I would have been on the verge of suicide," she added.
 
Meanwhile, Paris prosecutors have not decided whether or not to charge Strauss-Kahn in the Banon case.
 
He faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
