Registered sex offender back in court
A preliminary inquiry was held this week for a registered sex offender from the Kensington area charged with committing another sexual assault. Jeffrey Lea Hogg, 34, is charged with indictable sexual assault in connection with an incident that is alleged to have occurred in late summer. A publication ban prevents reporting any details of the alleged offence. At the time the offence is alleged to have been committed, Hogg was still on federal parole for sexual assault. He was convicted in 2012 of sexually assaulting a woman he had initially contacted through a dating website called Plenty of Fish. That conviction was overturned on appeal, but the Crown took the case all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada which reinstated Hogg’s conviction. His latest case is expected to go to trial in the Supreme Court of P.E.I.
