Former fashion mogul Peter Nygard, 82, has been found guilty of four counts of sexual assault in a Toronto court after a six-week trial. The accusations against Nygard date back to incidents in the 1980s to the mid-2000s, with five women alleging that he attacked them. He was acquitted of one count of sexual assault and one count of forcible confinement. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for November 21, and Nygard's attorney has been contacted for comment. Nygard also faces a federal indictment in the United States for sex trafficking and other illegal activities, with allegations that he used his fashion business as a cover. The indictment claims that Nygard enticed young women with drugs, money, and the promise of a modeling career, and then sexually assaulted them. Nygard has denied the allegations. He had previously consented to be extradited to the United States but later appealed against extradition. Nygard served as the chairman of Nygard International, a women's clothing company, before it filed for bankruptcy in 2020 due to the sex trafficking allegations.
