Sex Trafficking Charges Against Peter Nygard

The Canadian fashion executive was arrested and charged with sex trafficking, racketeering conspiracy, and other crimes involving dozens of women and teenage girls. Over a 25-year period, Nygard used his company's influence, money, and employees to recruit adult and minor-aged female victims. The indictment accused Mr. Nygard of sexually assaulting some victims while associates assaulted or drugged others.

The FBI raided his company headquarters during its investigation of sex trafficking accusations against him, made by multiple women.

Nygard also had a home in the Bahamas, where he has been in a legal battle with his neighbor over property and noise complaints. He has claimed that the neighbor was to be blamed for allegations, however, The Times has documented complaints over 4 decades, starting before the neighbor feud.

At this time, over 80 women have signed as plaintiffs in the case. Many of these women speak about similar incidents; being raped when underage during a party at his home, being raped and held against their will after visiting the company.

Federal authorities investigated Mr. Nygard between 2015 and 2017 without filing charges. The Bahamas police have also investigated allegations of rape of six different victims under the age of 16.

Separately, Nygard's ex-girlfriend, Suelyn Medeiros, has been accused as his madam, recruiting women for him to rape at his Bahamas compound.
