A fashion designer who was friends with Paris Hilton is facing more than 50 years in jail today after he was convicted for sexually assaulting young models [including the rape of a minor] he lured to Los Angeles.
Anand Jon Alexander, 35, is scheduled to be sentenced in Los Angeles Superior Court today before he is sent to New York to face similar charges.
Los Angeles prosecutors have asked that he be imprisoned for the maximum possible under the law - three terms of 53 years and six months to life.
He was convicted in November of 14 counts including forcible rape. Some of his victims, who ranged in age from 14 to 21, are expected to speak.
Prosecutors said Alexander often found women online, baited them with promises of glamorous photo shoots and other modelling work, then attacked them at his Beverly Hills apartment.
The designer has been featured on the television show 'America's Next Top Model' [click for my post on Tyra Banks and the messed up show; he is probably actually not one of the worst sick freaks to appear on the show!] and worked with celebrities including R&B singer Mary J Blige.
He is also said to be a friend of hotel heiress Paris Hilton, a fan of his hand-painted jeans, which retailed for more than $700.
His website lists dozens of celebrity A-listers as clients.
[Quick break from the article to post some (there are many more) of Lydia's MK symbolic images, I posted this photo of Lydia in the sitting porcelain doll pose (tranced and 'frozen') in the Avril Lavigne post to show the similarity, not recognizing it as Lydia at the time.]
[It was part of her Numero cover shoot with her in bondage (rope/cage) gear, which has added significance due to her mother Patty Hearst's brainwashing (she was tied up and locked in a closet, raped and the like, quote from a book included in my post on it: "...she was tied up, blindfolded and confined in a closet for a considerable length of time. Isolation and physical restraint are very important factors in brainwashing. 3. She was programmed by sex. This form of conditioning has long been used in the forcible entry of women into prostitution and in the coercion of prostitutes. It is evident that it was used...." so having her pictured in this 100% tranced and petrified state is showing her mind control I feel, mind control 'runs in the family' so to speak (Illuminist families like the Hearsts/Hiltons are completely misogynistic and have always kept their "wives" as property and programmed).]
[From the same set another symbolic mirror programming one.]
[Lydia Hearst dressed as Dorothy complete with ruby slippers and Toto (think this was pointed out by Chris or someone a while back too), in a Wizard of Oz themed Heatherette fashion show, again showing the Hearst family mind control as Wizard of Oz is a major programming theme.]

Beverly Hills police began investigating Alexander in March 2007 when a woman reported she had been sexually assaulted in his apartment.
During the trial, prosecutors relied heavily on the testimony from women who made the accusations against Alexander. Defence attorneys argued many of women were lying about what happened to them and sought revenge against Alexander when they didn't get modelling jobs.
He is under indictment in New York on similar charges involving nine women.
Born in India, Alexander graduated from the Parsons School of Design in New York and launched a fashion line in 1999.
His sentencing caps a tumultuous post-verdict saga.
In July, juror Alvin Dymally was found in contempt of court after a judge found that he had attempted a romantic liaison with Alexander's sister, Sanjana.
Dymally spoke to Sanjana by phone twice during the trial and offered her his help. He also gave her a note in a courthouse cafeteria, asking her to call him. She did, but refused to meet with him alone.
The judge also held her in contempt for contacting the juror and failing to report the misconduct. A hearing will be held in September.
The judge did not, however, grant Alexander's motion for a new trial, saying there wasn't any proof the phone conversations swayed the verdict.
