Jacob Hoggard Is Back In Court

Finally starting the court proceedings

The Hedley frontman is charged with sex-related offences starts with pre-trial starting up today!


The full trial is expected to start in April, though there may be further delays due to the pandemic.


Hoggard has opted to be tried by a jury, and new jury trials have been put on hold until at least May to limit the spread of the virus.


The singer pleaded not guilty at his preliminary hearing to sexual assault causing bodily harm and sexual interference.


He was arrested and charged in 2018 in connection with alleged incidents involving a woman and a teenager.
