(Newser) – The Paris prosecutor's office has dropped an investigation into a French writer's claim that Dominique Strauss-Kahn tried to rape her for lack of sufficient proof. The prosecutor's office said today that Strauss-Kahn admitted to sexual aggression against writer Tristane Banon but that it is too late to prosecute for that charge, because the incident in question happened in 2003.
