Last month, a CBC story also recounted a 24-year-old woman’s allegation that Hoggard sexually assaulted her in a hotel two years ago.Hoggard said in his own statement last month that he has never engaged in non-consensual sexual behaviour, but acknowledged he “behaved in a way that objectified women” and was “reckless and dismissive of their feelings.”The group has since been dropped by its management team, blacklisted by scores of radio stations and abandoned by bands booked as tour openers.
