Jian Ghomeshi acquitted on all charges

After more than one month of deliberation, Justice William B. Horkins delivered his verdict in Jian Ghomeshi's trial today. Horkins found Ghomeshi not guilty on four counts of sexual assault and one count of choking to overcome resistance.

Ghomeshi, the former host of CBC's Q, has been acquitted on all charges relating to incidents that allegedly happened between 2002 and 2003.

While delivering his ruling, Horkins questioned the credibility and reliability of all three complainants.
