Story from AM 640 Toronto
Jian Ghomeshi has been found not guilty of all charges laid against him.
Judge William Horkins delivered the ruling on Thursday morning in the Ontario Court of Justice after reading the verdict for more than an hour. The entire verdict can be read here.
The decision comes six weeks after an eight-day trial held at Old City Hall courthouse in Toronto at the beginning of February.
The former broadcaster had been charged with four counts of sexual assault and one count of overcoming resistance by choking following accusations made by three complainants, he had pleaded not guilty to all charges.
All three complainants had taken to the stand during the trial with Justice Horkins pointing to a large number of inconsistencies in their testimony.
These inconsistencies, according to Horkins, undermined the witnesses credibility and left the court with reasonable doubt.
Ghomeshi hugged his mother and sister upon hearing the not guilty verdict.
