NEW YORK (AP) — Fashion designer Anand Jon Alexander has pleaded guilty to molesting a woman he baited with the promise of modeling work.

Alexander admitted to one count of criminal sexual act Thursday. He was sentenced to five years in prison.

He already was convicted in California on similar charges and was sentenced there to 59 years to life.

Assistant District Attorney Maxine Rosenthal said he also is facing new charges in Texas.

She said the deal spared victims from testifying multiple times.

The designer was featured on "Americas Next Top Model" and has worked with such celebrities as Paris Hilton and Mary J. Blige.
