NEW YORK (Reuters) - The hotel maid who former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn is accused of sexually assaulting will testify against him should the case go to trial, a lawyer for the woman said on Monday.

“She is going to come into this courthouse, get into that witness stand and tell the world what Dominique Strauss (Kahn) did to her,” Kenneth Thompson, a lawyer for the woman, told reporters outside court.

Strauss-Kahn pleaded not guilty in New York Supreme Court on Monday and the case is expected to go to trial.
