After a trial that lasted less than two weeks, closing arguments are done in the Jian Ghomeshi case.
Both the Crown and Defense highlighted the key evidence which was presented over the last several days, and summarized their arguments for the judge, who will decide the outcome of this trial.
The judge presiding over the trial of Jian Ghomeshi says he will reserve his judgment until March 24.
Three complainants testified Ghomeshi slapped, punched and choked them, but his lawyer, Marie Henein, questioned their actions after the alleged assaults, including sending flirty emails.
The crown argued the way the three complainants behaved after they were allegedly assaulted shouldn’t be used to asses their credibility.
Ghomeshi, who did not testify during the trial, has pleaded not guilty to four counts of sexual assault and a count of overcome resistance by choking.
A second trial on a separate sexual assault charge will be held this summer.
