Fashion mogul Peter Nygard waives right to bail hearing in Quebec sex crime case

By The Canadian Press

Canadian fashion mogul Peter Nygard is waiving his right to a bail hearing in Quebec where he faces two sex-related charges.

Defence lawyer Laurence Juillet told the Quebec court that the accused chose to wave his right to a bail hearing because he is currently detained in a Toronto jail and is subject to a detention order in Manitoba.

Nygard, who participated in the short court hearing by phone, faces a charge of sexual assault and a charge of forcible confinement in Quebec.

Prosecutor Jérôme Laflamme says the Crown will be ready to set a trial date at Nygard’s next Montreal court appearance scheduled for Sept. 8.
