Two sexual assault charges dropped against Jian Ghomeshi

The Crown has dropped two sex assault charges against Jian Ghomeshi, leaving the disgraced former CBC Radio host to stand trial on five charges of sex assault and one charge of choking.

Crown prosecutor Mike Callaghan told the court there is no reasonable prospect of conviction on the two dropped charges, and that he has spoken to the two complainants involved.
