Bail hearing for Peter Nygard scheduled for January

TORONTO — A bail hearing for Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard is set to take place next month.

The Jan. 6 date was set this morning in a brief hearing in a Toronto court.

Nygard, who faces sexual assault charges, did not attend.

He has denied all allegations.

The former head of a multimillion-dollar clothing company was flown to Toronto from Winnipeg to face the charges in October.

That’s after Toronto police announced they were charging him with six counts of sexual assault and three counts of forcible confinement dating back to the late 1980s and mid-2000s.

Also in October, Nygard agreed to be extradited to the United States to face one charge of sex trafficking.

Nygard was arrested in Winnipeg last year under the Extradition Act.
