Since 1995, Nygard has taken advantage of his power and influence in order to recruit women and satisfy his and his friends’ desire. These activities would take place in the United States, Canada and the Bahamas. A lot of his victims were minor girls and vulnerable women.

Speaking on behalf of Nygard, his lawyer Jay Prober “Mr. Nygard vehemently denies all the allegations and expects to be vindicated in court.” The next hearing will be on Jan. 13, 2021. But before that Nygard plans to get out on bail.

Apart from this, a group of women have got together and charged Nygard with a class-action civil litigation. They accused him of sexual assault. Nygard has further denied all these charges.

According to the charges, Nygard would take these girls to parties as his girlfriends. Force them to have sex with other men. His parties would be “Lavish” in terms of these things.
