The former head of the International Monetary Fund has returned to France for the first time since being accused of sexual assault by a Manhattan hotel maid.
Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his family left for Paris from JFK Airport Saturday night.
All charges against him were dismissed last month after questions were raised about the credibility of the maid, Nafissatou Diallo.
Diallo has filed a civil suit against Strauss-Kahn, who denies her allegations.
Strauss-Kahn was mentioned as a leading presidential contender in France before his arrest.
He faces an attempted rape investigation in France, based on accusations by a French novelist.
Strauss-Kahn has called the claim "imaginary."
