Jian Ghomeshi was arrested Wednesday in Toronto and is facing charges of four counts of sexual assault and one count of “overcome resistance – choking.”
He appeared in court this afternoon. CBC’s John Lancaster reported that Ghomeshi was “sitting alone in prisoner’s box. White shirt, black blazer. Looks tired.”
The Toronto Star reports Ghomeshi has been granted $100,000 bail on the conditions that he live with his mother, surrender his passport and not leave Ontario. Ghomeshi’s next court appearance is Jan. 8.
Ghomeshi left the courthouse, pushing through a crush of media, without saying a word. But in a statement his lawyer Marie Henein said Ghomeshi will plead not guilty and that “we will not be making any further media statements.”
