Fashion designer Anand Jon was found guilty of 16 of 23 counts of sexual abuse today in LA. The charges included multiple counts of forcible and statutory rape. Jon allegedly lured aspiring models, some as young as 14, to a Beverly Hills apartment by promising them high profile work—before coercing them into “sadistic fantasies.”
The designer, who created clothes for Paris Hilton and appeared on America’s Next Top Model, was originally arrested in March 2007. Jon faces potential life imprisonment for his crimes.
