Reg­is­tered sex of­fender back in court

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE PROVINCE -

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.
