MIDTOWN — Prosecutors are planning to meet with Dominique Strauss-Kahn's defense team Wednesday after questions arose about the credibility of the hotel maid accusing him of sexual assault, NBC New York reported.

The Manhattan District Attorney's office may reportedly be ready to offer Strauss-Kahn the option of pleading guilty to a lesser misdemeanor charge.

The former head of the IMF was released from his house arrest without bail on Friday after prosecutors revealed eroding confidence in the story from the hotel maid who accused Strauss-Kahn of rape, including alleged phone calls she made to a prison inmate about the possible financial gains from her case.

While the case has taken a dramatic turn Strauss-Kahn's wife, Anne Sinclair, 62, texted "Let's not forget those who spit in our face," to friends last Friday, the Daily News reported.

"We were right not to have any doubts!" she reportedly wrote in a second text.
