The frontman of Canadian rock group ‘Hedley’ will be back in court this morning. Jacob Hoggard has pleaded not guilty to two counts of sexual assault causing bodily harm and one count of sexual interference. Police say the allegations relate to three separate incidents in 2016 involving a woman and a girl under the age of 16. Last month a judge ruled that the crown had a strong enough case to proceed to trial, but no date has yet been set. Hoggard has taken an indefinite leave from Hedley.
