Three new charges brought against Jian Ghomeshi

Jian Ghomeshi was back in court this morning, where it was revealed that three new charges have been brought against the former CBC radio host, bringing the total charges against the host to eight (seven counts of sexual assault and one count of overcoming resistance -- choking). The names of the new complainants are subject to a publication ban.
