TORONTO — The sex assault case of Hedley frontman Jacob Hoggard will be heard by a judge and jury if it goes to trial.

Hoggard, who was in a Toronto court Thursday for a two-day preliminary hearing, made the request through his lawyer.

He also pleaded not guilty to two counts of sexual assault causing bodily harm and one count of sexual interference.

There is a publication ban on any evidence presented at the hearing as well as any information that could identify the two complainants.

Hedley has been on an indefinite hiatus since the allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced.
