Ex-CBC host pleads not guilty to sexual assault in Canada

Posted:

Former Canadian Broadcasting Corp. radio host Jian Ghomeshi has pleaded not guilty to four counts of sexual assault and one count of choking in a case that rocked the country's vaunted public broadcaster.


   The former popular radio host entered the plea at a Toronto courthouse Thursday.


   The CBC fired Ghomeshi last October after media reports of sexual assault allegations first emerged. Ghomeshi, the host of "Q," a radio show on culture heard on many public stations in the United States, has steadfastly denied the allegations, saying he had consensual "rough sex" with women.


   He was granted bail at $100,000 last November on condition he turn over his passport and live with his mother.


   Ghomeshi first gained fame as a member of the 1990s satirical pop band Moxy Fruvous.
