IMF director Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who is sued in New York for sexual violence, might face more than 70 years in jail, reported agencies Tuesday.

It was earlier announced that the 62-year-old Frenchman is facing up to 20 years of prison.

Sources now have it the total of seven counts levied against DSK could motivate a sentence amounting to some 74 years in prison.

Summarily, Strauss-Kahn is accused of two counts of first degree sexual abuse, one count of first degree attempted rape, counts of sexual violence of first and second degree, second degree assault, as well as sexual contact without mutual consent.

The IMF director was detained Sunday, following a signal by a maid at a posh NYC hotel, who alleged he violently attempted to have sex with her against her will.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn and his legal counsel completely deny the charges and claim he was having lunch with his daughter at the time.
