NEW YORK - A judge has agreed to free former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn without bail or home confinement in the sexual assault case against him.

The move Friday comes after prosecutors said an extensive background investigation of the accuser caused them to reassess the case.

The agreement OK'd by State Supreme Court Justice Michael Obus in Manhattan does not give Strauss-Kahn his passport back, meaning he can't head to France anytime soon. The criminal case against him stands.
