Maid in DSK assault case speaks out: Will media interviews influence case?

Nafissatou Diallo, the 32-year-old hotel maid accusing former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn of sexually assaulting her, decided to speak to the media about her experience this weekend, interviewing with both ABC and Newsweek.

Diallo's choice to go public with her accusations in the middle of a pending criminal investigation is extremely unusual and has put a lot of pressure on Manhattan prosecutors, who she plans to meet with on Wednesday.

Sunny Hostin, CNN legal contributor, and Paul Callan, criminal defense attorney, join American Morning today to discuss if Diallo's interviews will help or hurt her case and to weigh in on why they think she decided to talk.
