Calvin comments on his clients 1 year peace bond in exchange for 12 sexual assualt charges being dropped against him.
Ford’s lawyer Calvin Barry said in court that his client disputes those allegations but will consent to the peace bond.
“It is not an admission of guilt in any way, shape or form,” Barry told the court, adding that if the case had gone to trial his client would have pleaded not guilty.
Barry said Ford agreed to the peace bond to put an end to the proceedings so he could move on with his life.
