Ghomeshi's defense team successfully convinced the judge that his accusers' testimony was untrustworthy.By Matt Picht | March 24, 2016
Former Canadian radio host Jian Ghomeshi has been acquitted of several sexual assault charges leveled against him.
The charges stemmed from three separate incidents that occurred more than 10 years ago, when Ghomeshi was hosting a CBC radio show. Three women accused Ghomeshi of violently assaulting them; he claims the encounters were consensual.
Throughout the trial, the defense attacked the credibility of his accusers, using inconsistencies in testimony along with email exchanges between Ghomeshi and his accusers to discredit their claims.
