The woman who former Hedley frontman Jacob Hoggard sexually assaulted is now suing him for $2.8 million. She says the incident left her suffering from mental anguish, physical and emotional pain and suffering, and a loss of enjoyment of life. The woman claims that Hoggard raped her, choked, slapped and spit on her, and dragged her across the floor by her legs in a hotel room in November 2016. 

In June 2022, the singer was found guilty of sexually assaulting an Ottawa woman in 2016. 

Hoggard will be attending a sentencing hearing on Thursday.

Hoggard is still facing a third sex assault charge related to an alleged incident in Kirkland Lake, Ont.
