Peter Nygard has been found guilty on four separate accounts of sexual assault. A Toronto court handed down the guilty verdicts, while exonerating Nygard on a fifth count of sexual assault as well as a charge of forcible confinement. A fashion mogul, Nygard ran his own highly successful women’s clothing company, Nygard International, based out of Winnipeg, Canada.
His son, Kai Bickle, who goes by his mother’s surname, spoke out about his father’s abusive practices. Nygard also faces potential extradition to the United States. He faces a federal indictment in the Southern District of New York that accuses him of using his fashion business as a “façade of legitimacy” to conceal sex trafficking and other illegal activity.
