Jian Ghomeshi appeared at the College Park court Wednesday afternoon, charged with four counts of sexual assault and one count of overcoming resistance by choking. He was released on $100,000 bail—but he won’t be able to leave Canada and will have to live with his mother.

Shortly after the hearing, his lawyer, Marie Henein, made the following statement:

We will say whatever we have to say in a court of law. We will not be making any further media statements, nor will Jian Ghomeshi be making any further media statements.
