Verdict In Jian Ghomeshi Trial Expected March 24th

The trial is over. 

Following closing arguments today from the Crown and Defense, Judge William Horkins will present the verdict in the trial of former Q radio host Jian Ghomeshi on March 24th.

Jian's defense attorney closed saying the Crown failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that her client committed the sexual assault and choking crime.

The Crown however, fired back in their own closing, saying that while the accusers' behaviors following the alleged assault is questionable, everyone responds to sexual assault differently.

Throughout the course of the trial, Jian did not speak or testify. He has long denied the allegations, claiming everything that happened was consensual.

Stay tuned.
