Accused Sarah Lawrence sex trafficker made $2M by forcing victim into prostitution: records

Accused Sarah Lawrence sex trafficker Lawrence Ray made nearly $2 million in just two years by forcing one of his victims into prostitution, it was revealed in court on Monday.

Ray, who was ordered held without bail at the hearing after he was busted while in bed with another alleged victim, kept records of the ill-gotten cash, a federal prosecutor said in court.

One typed document shows the unidentified victim handed over $700,000 in 2017, according to prosecutors.

In 2018, the woman turned over more than $1 million to the accused sex trafficker, a second ledger shows. Prosecutors believe the woman was seeing more and more clients to meet Ray’s demands.

The ledgers marked dates and amounts, which prosecutors have matched to text messages sent by Ray and his associates.

The cash payments were collected by a female associate of Ray and deposited into bank accounts that he had access to, prosecutors said in court.

Ray was found in bed with another alleged female victim when federal agents arrested him in Piscataway, New Jersey, earlier this month, prosecutors said.

Ray, who was the legal “guardian” of that woman, had groomed her and subjected her to extreme physical and mental abuse, prosecutors charged.

He forced that unidentified victim — a former college roommate of his daughter — to have sex with other men while he filmed and berated her while he filmed her sobbing, prosecutors said.

Authorities also recovered video of Ray grabbing her by the hair and physically throwing her out of the New Jersey house, according to prosecutors.

The 60-year-old former friend of disgraced NYPD Commissioner Bernie Kerik allegedly created a Nxivm-like sex cult to prey on his daughter’s classmates at Sarah Lawrence College — all while allegedly extorting the classmates and forcing one into prostitution.
