Anand Jon acts as his own defense

July 14, 2009|Jack Leonard

Beverly Hills fashion designer Anand Jon Alexander dropped his high-powered team of defense lawyers on Monday and began acting as his own attorney in the run-up to his sentencing next month on sexual assault charges.

Alexander told Superior Court Judge David S. Wesley that he is seeking more materials from prosecutors before his Aug. 31 sentencing.

The Indian-born designer, who goes by the professional name Anand Jon, was convicted last year of raping one woman and sexually assaulting six other girls and young women. The charges carry a mandatory life prison term.

Alexander, 35, also faces sexual assault charges in New York and Texas.
