122 The Rise and Fall of Hedley's Jacob Hoggard—Part 1
[Part 1 of 5]
CONTENT WARNING: Graphic details of violent sexual assault and allegations involving a minor.
FROM CANADIAN IDOL TO CONVICTED SEX OFFENDER
As frontman for the pop-rock band Hedley, Jacob Hoggard was known for pushing boundaries—both on and off the stage.
By 2022 he would also be known as one of Canada's most notorious sex offenders. How did his behaviour go unchecked for so long?
This series explores how the rise and downfall of Jacob Hoggard in the era of #metoo, and how myths around consent, rape and groupie culture continue to dominate the social discourse... and our criminal justice system.
