The sex assault trial of Canadian musician Jacob Hoggard is set to resume in Toronto Tuesday.

The Crown finished presenting its evidence early last week, and the defense is expected to begin making its case.

Hoggard, the BC-born frontman for the band Hedley, has pleaded not guilty to two counts of sexual assault causing bodily harm and one of sexual interference, a charge that relates to the sexual touching of a person under 16.

The charges relate to incidents involving two complainants, one of whom was a teenager at the time.

Prosecutors allege Hoggard arranged to have the complainants meet him at Toronto-area hotels, where they allege he repeatedly raped them, leaving them bleeding and bruised.

The defense, meanwhile, argues Hoggard had consensual sex with the complainants.


Support is available for anyone who has been sexually assaulted. You can access crisis lines and local support services through this Government of Canada website or the Ending Violence Association of Canada database. If you’re in immediate danger or fear for your safety or that of others around you, please call 911.
