After nearly two weeks of deliberation a jury found Anand Jon Alexander, guilty of 14 felonies including forcible rape. Prosecution charged his victims ranged in age from 14 to 21.

The seven victims, many of them aspiring models were lured to Los Angeles with Alexander promising their gigs and all expense stays at hotels.

Alexander is under indictment in New York on similar charges involving nine women.

Before his arrest, Alexander had appeared on America's Top Model and was touted by Newsweek.  His websites boasts a who-who's of celeb clientele including Paris Hilton and Mary J. Blige.
