Jian Ghomeshi trial: Lucy DeCoutere asked about publicity she's gotten from case
'Somebody gave me cookies that they slipped into my pockets ... not televisions and cars,' actress says
Actress Lucy DeCoutere, the second complainant to testify at Jian Ghomeshi's sexual assault and choking trial, was cross-examined for two hours by the defence about the publicity she's gained from her involvement in the case.
Lawyer Marie Henein also repeatedly asked the Trailer Park Boys actress Thursday afternoon about her decision to spend more time with the former CBC Radio host during the weekend he allegedly sexually assaulted and choked her.
The cross-examination resumes tomorrow, ending suddenly today after Henein asked DeCoutere "to tell his Honour the truth" about conversations that have been going on.
DeCoutere responded that she didn't know what the lawyer was referring to.
Following a pause, Henein suggested breaking for the day and the judge agreed.
