(Richard Drew) (Newser) – A judge has agreed to free former IMF leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn from a New York City jail on the condition that he remain under house arrest. The judge set bail at $1 million and approved an elaborate arrangement under which the 62-year-old diplomat and banker would be confined to a private apartment in Manhattan and monitored by armed guards. Prosecutors also announced today that a grand jury had indicted him on charges related to his sex-assault arrest. Strauss-Kahn arrived in the courtroom this afternoon wearing a gray suit. He turned to give a quick smile to supporters in the gallery that included a daughter and his wife, Anne Sinclair. He has been behind bars since Saturday after he was accused of trying to rape a maid at a Manhattan hotel.
