Skipp Anderson found guilty of sexual assault
Skipp Anderson, the owner of Pink Lounge & Nightclub, has been found guilty of sexual assault.
A jury found Anderson, 40, guilty on Thursday evening after seven hours of deliberation.
The incident dates back to July 2016 when a group of friends got together for a night of drinking and hot tubbing.
The victim, a 22-year-old man who cannot be identified, filed a complaint afterwards saying he had been assaulted.
After the verdict was handed down, the victim’s lawyer credited his client’s courage and said it sends a powerful message.
Anderson’s lawyer, Brad Mitchell, has not ruled out an appeal.
All parties are back in court Friday morning to set a date for sentencing arguments.
