After accusations came earlier this year, the Toronto police are following up on the alleged incidents where Hoggard met with two women on three different dates in 2016. He is said to have committed sexual assault on both women.

While Hoggard denied what were rumours of this story back in March, claiming he had never been non-consensual, the Toronto police are concerned that there may be more victims to the singer.

It's clear that this is a horrible situation but some people are taking pride in the fact that a man who allegedly hurt people is now being held accountable. 

People who were previously defending the singer are speaking out about his recent arrest and it seems like it has changed a lot of minds. 

There is still a lot of conflict between fans of the band and people who believe that their music is no longer credible given the circumstances. 

Some people are going as far as to say that they're devastated by the news but really it shouldn't come as that surprising given the allegations that came out earlier this year. 

To be completely honest, some people had no sympathy whatsoever. 

Considering Hoggard is being charged with sexual assault with bodily harm and sexual interference, which means the victim was under the age of consent, you can't really blame the public for their reactions to the alleged situation.

Hoggard is due in court on Thursday at Old City Hall Courthouse in Toronto at 2:00 P.M. It will be interesting to see how this trial plays out.
