As the first day of Jian Ghomeshi’s sex assault trial wrapped up, his defence lawyer Marie Henein had already pointed out several discrepancies in the first witness’ testimony to police, media, and the court.
Overall, they were relatively minor: was she wearing hair extensions when he allegedly yanked it? In which direction was her hair being pulled? Was she kissing Ghomeshi before he allegedly pulled her hair or during? On Tuesday, she introduced a new question about whether or not the witness was “pushed,” “pulled,” or “thrown” to the ground during the assault in Ghomeshi’s house—the answers appeared to vary in different interviews.
This can’t be good.
