Indian fashion designer jailed for 59 years

Celebrity fashion designer Anand Jon has been sentenced to life imprisonment and will have to spend 59 years behind bars for sexual assault on girls as young as 14.

The Indian-born Anand was held guilty of sex crimes by an American court earlier and was delivered the sentence on Monday. He was accused for forcible rape of aspiring models and the judge held him guilty on 14 counts.

Anand, who designed the clothes for celebrities like Paris Hilton, appeared shaken by the verdict. Pleding his own case, Jon expressed frustration over the manner in which his lawyers had initially fought the case.

Anand Jon alias Anand John Alexander was accused of allegedly enticing young models with the promise of modelling jobs. He is accused of sex crimes against over a dozen girls ranging from the age 14 to 21 in different states in the United States of America (USA).
