Hoggard was arrested and charged last summer after allegations of sexual misconduct emerged.

Toronto 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, 35, has previously denied engaging in non-consensual sexual behaviour, but has said he acted in a way that objectifies women.

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

OTTAWA — The sexual-assault trial of former Afghanistan hostage Joshua Boyle will proceed today after the judge decided evidence given earlier in the trial is still admissible. Judge Peter Doody raised concerns Tuesday about the impact of two recent Supreme Court of Canada rulings on the use of evidence about an alleged victim's prior sexual activity. The evidence he was worried about was given by Caitlan Coleman, Boyle's now-estranged wife, during direct testimony in March in the case against Boyle, who is charged with 19 offences including assault, sexual assault, and unlawful confinement.
