Jian Ghomeshi won't face second sex assault trial

Jian Ghomeshi won't be back in court in June after all. The CBC is reporting today that the crown is expected to drop the criminal charge that would have seen the former CBC Radio host stand trial on another sex assault charge this June.

As the CBC Reports, in the wake of the earlier Ghomeshi acquittal, Crown attorney Michael Callaghan has revisited the evidence and decided there's not enough reasonable likelihood of a conviction to continue.

As the National Post previously reported, the trial was expected to be much different than the first since it was alleged to involve something that happened in the CBC offices back in 2008.
