Dominique Strauss-Kahn out on bail

The accused rapist won't be spending tonight at Riker's.

Multiple media outlets are reporting that Dominique Strauss-Kahn was granted bail just minutes ago by a Manhattan judge.

The former IMF head accused of raping a hotel maid must submit to home arrest and wear an electronic monitoring bracelet, as well as be monitored by video.

Strauss will reportedly stay at a New York City apartment with his wife while awaiting trial for the seven charges against him. Prior to today, he had been staying at a Riker's Island, where he was on a suicide watch.

He has already surrendered his passport and he also had to waive his extradition rights as a condition of being granted bail.

Strauss-Kahn pleaded for bail earlier, but a judge denied it because he was deemed him a flight risk. Bail has been set at $1 million.
