The case of Hedley’s Jacob Hoggard, who faces three sex-related charges, will return to court today in Toronto. Hoggard is charged with one count of sexual interference and two counts of sexual assault causing bodily harm. Police have said the charges relate to three separate incidents — involving a woman and a girl under the age of 16 — that allegedly occurred in the Toronto area in 2016. Hoggard has previously denied ever engaging in non-consensual sexual behaviour, but has said he behaved in a way that objectifies women.
