2 Of 7 Charges Against Ghomeshi Dropped


Canadian prosecutors have withdrawn two sexual assault charges out of the seven assault/sexual assault charges that were levied against former syndicated Canadian radio host Jian Ghomeshi. According to AFP News, prosecutors felt a conviction was unlikely in these two cases. Two separate trials for the remaining charges will take place next year.

Ghomeshi was fired by CBC last year after at least a dozen women came forward with accusations he choked them, punched them, and/or slammed them against walls, causing physical harm. The radio host maintains his innocence saying the extreme sex acts were consensual.

Ghomeshi's public radio show Q was heard across Canada and in more than 180 cities in the United States. It remains on air with a new host and has been rebranded as q (lower case).
