Mr. Strauss-Kahn was released from house arrest in a lower Manhattan townhouse, where he had been under armed guard and on electronic monitoring, after a judge during a court hearing loosened the conditions of his bail in light of the disclosures. But prosecutors, who retained his passport, did not seek to dismiss the charges, which they say they are still investigating.
