The conditions of Jian Ghomeshi’s bail were changed to allow him to leave the country and move out of his mom’s house, according to documents obtained by CANADALAND. The former host was seen in Washington, DC on November 6, 2015 after the changes to the bail.
On January 8, 2015 Ghomeshi was charged with seven counts of sexual assault and one count of overcome resistance by choking. The bail was set at $100,000 and had eight conditions. As reported widely at the time, Ghomeshi had to live with his mom and surrender his passport to the police. He was also prohibited from travelling outside Ontario, owning firearms and contacting several women involved with the case.
