Hedley frontman Jacob Hoggard has once again had his sex offences court case put over.
The case, involving three sex-related charges, has now been pushed back for a fourth time. The decision was made this morning during a brief court appearance, which Hoggard did not attend, in Toronto.
As CBC reports, the prosecution said that they have provided most of the disclosure for the case.
The next court date has been set for three weeks from now, on November 28.

UPDATE (11/28, 12 p.m. EST): Once again, the case has been put over. The next court date is now set for three weeks from now. Again, Jacob Hoggard did not attend the brief hearing at the Toronto courtroom earlier today.
As previously reported, Hoggard was arrested in July and charged with one count of sexual interference and two counts of sexual assault causing bodily harm. Three separate incidents allegedly occurred in the Toronto area in 2016, involving a woman and a girl under the age of 16.
In addition to the three charges currently before the court, a number of other sexual misconduct allegations were levelled against Hoggard earlier this year.
Hedley have since gone on indefinite hiatus.
