MORRISANIA - Bronx residents protested earlier today to defend the woman who accused former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn of rape. Members of the borough's Guinean community, as well as state Assemblyman Eric Stevenson (D-79th District), rallied outside a mosque on 3rd Avenue in Morrisania. Some protesters say they know the alleged victim, and that if the District Attorney's Office tosses the case, other rape victims might be afraid to speak out against their attackers. Prosecutors in the case said they found inconsistencies between the alleged victim's account and what actually happened after the incident.Strauss-Kahn free from house arrest; charges standEx-IMF leader pleads not guilty to sex assault
