His departure meant that he did not end up making the donation or performing the community service detailed by his agreement with Centerplate.Hague pleaded guilty in February 2015 in the Canadian court to the charge of causing Sade distress.Marc Lyons, founder and president emeritus of the foundation, said he was glad that the group was able to give Hague "a second chance in life." "Everybody is entitled to make a mistake," Lyons said of Hague, who is corporate donations chairman for the group.Lyons said Hague has "done a great job" at raising money for the foundation. Hague's Twitter feed in recent months shows him enjoying a globe-trotting lifestyle.
"In my case, it was less than a minute in Vancouver two years ago," Hague said.Due to the incident with Sade I have lost income, received hate mail and death threats to myself and my family.My son was actually attacked." After the dog debacle, Hague joined the board of directors of the Stamford Youth Foundation, a charitable group that works with kids in his hometown."This mirrors our corporate philosophy and was an important consideration for bringing Des on board, as opposed to an isolated, out-of-character incidence from the past," Froozer said.
"In addition, we firmly believe that everyone deserves a second chance." Hague's appointment as Froozer's top executive came a year after a Canadian judge fined him ,000 and banned him from owning or controlling an animal for three years following his guilty plea to a single count of causing an animal to be in distress.
In addition to public outrage, Centerplate clients were concerned about the situation, including the San Francisco 49ers football team, which condemned Hague's conduct.
