Former America's Next Top Model Judge & Fashion Designer Pleads Guilty To Molesting Aspiring Model

Shamed celebrity fashion designer Anand Jon Alexander pleaded guilty in a New York City court Thursday to one count of a criminal sexual act, FoxNews.com reports.

Alexander, who once worked with the likes of Paris Hilton and Mary J. Blige, made the plea as part of a deal with prosecutors so that his victim could avoid having to testify.

The former America’s Next Top Model judge was sentenced to five years for admitting to sexually assaulting a woman he lured with promises of work as a model.
