Defendant Daniel S. Fitzgerald, a.k.a. “Hollywood Homes,” is a sex trafficker who engaged in intimidation and harassment to conceal his actions and silence victims and witnesses. Fitzgerald, a co-conspirator in Peter Nygard’s sex trafficking enterprise, also had his own venture, victimizing the plaintiffs in this case.
As a member of the Nygard-Fitzgerald Sex Trafficking Venture, Fitzgerald engaged in commercial sex acts with young women or girls, knowing they were being trafficked by Nygard and his companies. Fitzgerald benefited from the venture, receiving access to parties, travel, and captive young women or girls for his sexual gratification.
