Two of seven sex assault charges against Jian Ghomeshi withdrawn

Two of the seven sexual assault charges against former CBC Radio host Jian Ghomeshi were dropped at a Toronto court this morning, the CBC reports.
The Crown withdrew the two charges after determining there wasn't a reasonable prospect of conviction based on the evidence.
The Crown said the charges weren't dropped because of an issue of witness credibility.
Ghomeshi, 47, now faces six charges stemming from interactions with four women. His court case, which involves three women, will proceed to a judge-only trial in February 2016. One sexual assault case, however, is set to be tried separately in June 2016.
