NEW YORK (AP) - Fashion designer Anand Jon Alexander has pleaded guilty in New York City to molesting a woman he baited with the promise of modeling work.
Alexander admitted to one count of criminal sexual act Thursday. He was sentenced to five years in prison.
He already was convicted in California of similar charges and was sentenced there to 59 years to life.
Assistant District Attorney Maxine Rosenthal says he also is facing new charges in Texas. She says the deal spared victims from testifying multiple times.
The New York prison time amounts to time served, so his attorney says no years will be tacked onto his California sentence.
The designer was featured on "Americas Next Top Model" and has worked with such celebrities as Paris Hilton and Mary J. Blige.
