Former fashion mogul Peter Nygard was denied bail by a judge Friday morning in Winnipeg following more than two days of hearings and now faces possible extradition to the United States to face multiple charges of sexual assault. 

Justice Shawn Greenberg said she was not satisfied that the bail plan laid out by Nygard’s defence lawyers would ensure the former fashion mogul would not contact witnesses or have others contact them. 

Nygard, 79, has been in custody since he was arrested at a Winnipeg house on Dec. 14. He is accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women and girls over a 25-year period and faces possible extradition to the U.S. on those allegations.
