The Crown completed presenting its proof early final week, and the defence is predicted to start making its case at this time.
Hoggard, the frontman for the band Hedley, has pleaded not responsible to 2 counts of sexual assault inflicting bodily hurt and one in all sexual interference, a cost that pertains to the sexual touching of an individual below 16.
The costs relate to incidents involving two complainants, one in all whom was an adolescent on the time.
Prosecutors allege Hoggard organized to have the complainants meet him at Toronto-area accommodations, the place they allege he violently and repeatedly raped them, leaving them bleeding and bruised.
The defence, in the meantime, argues Hoggard had consensual intercourse with the complainants.
