Former CBC radio host, Jian Ghomeshi was acquitted of multiple sexual assault charges in a high-profile case that ended in Toronto last week. To help us understand the trial and the subsequent verdict, we asked President of the Advocates' Society, Martha McCarthy, to come chat with us. 

In the above video, Martha breaks down everything from the publicity surrounding the case, the inconsistencies in the witness testimonies, and the role of social media posts and emails. She also discussed why sexual assault complainants are subject to publication bans and why Ghomeshi didn't have to take the stand.
