Jian Ghomeshi accuser’s memories under fire

TORONTO – A starstruck publicity hound seeking her 15 minutes of fame? Or a pretty single mom looking for romance — blindsided by three punches to the head?

Victim blaming — why didn’t she go to police all those years ago? Or fair questions for a woman whose inconsistent testimony could send Jian Ghomeshi to jail?

It was only day one of the former CBC star’s long-anticipated trial and already it was a bumpy ride for the first of the three complainants. But Ghomeshi’s fierce lawyer, Marie Henein, was not wholly to blame. Her credibility suffered at the hands of her own shifting memories.
