    Default Jian Ghomeshi - Not Guilty Of Sexual Assault Charges

    Former CBC radio star Jian Ghomeshi has been found not guilty of all charges in the high profile sexual assault and overcome resistance by choking trial that heard allegations from three complainants.

    Justice William B. Horkins delivered his decision in the judge-only trial after carefully weighing the evidence since testimony wrapped six weeks ago.

    Horkins came to his decision after examining issues of consent and reasonable doubt with regard to the five charges Ghomeshi faced four counts of sexual assault and one count of overcome resistance by choking.

    Based on the trial, it was actually the right call. Doesn't mean he's innocent per se of violent behavior, but you could drive a truck through the holes in the women's stories AND it's clear that they were conspiring to bring Ghomeshi down. Seems like they were looking for revenge more than anything.

    based on the coverage of the trial the result is not surprising. No one came out of this looking like a real quality person.

    Well, I didn't know weather to put a "like" on this comment or not, but know it's meant out of support.
    This trial is by no means a reflection of where we stand as a society with this crap. The Prosecution were very ill prepared, and the women for what ever reason were withholding details, and changing their claims.
    I totally believe he beat them, but the way the evidence was prepared and presented didn't help them in the least.
