Two Sarah Lawrence sex cult SURVIVORS sue the NY school for failing to protect them

418

Former students of Sarah Lawrence College are accusing the college of betraying them by allowing a 50-year-old ex-con to roam its Westchester County campus; spend nights in a dormitory where his daughter lived; and form relationships with students whom he went on to abuse.

Who is Lawrence V. Ray?

That man, Lawrence V. Ray, was convicted in 2022 of extortion, sex trafficking and racketeering conspiracy after a trial in Manhattan. Federal prosecutors said that he used cult-leader tactics for a decade while indoctrinating and exploiting young people.

What happened to Isabella Pollok?

Four roommates of his daughter, Talia Ray, fell under Mr. Ray’s control. One, Isabella Pollok, became his ‘trusted lieutenant,’ prosecutors said, and was sentenced to prison.

Now, the other three are saying in legal papers and interviews that the school bears responsibility for their suffering.

Lawrence V. Ray

Claudia Drury, who testified during Mr. Ray’s trial that he forced her into prostitution, said she was speaking up to hold Sarah Lawrence administrators accountable after students were exposed to a figure who, she once wrote, delighted in ‘psychological, physical, spiritual and sexual abuses.’

‘They failed us so badly,’ Ms. Drury said.

‘There was a predator living in our dorm and they did nothing.’

Details of the lawsuit

Two former students, Daniel Levin and Santos Rosario, filed a lawsuit in Federal District Court in Manhattan on Nov. 21 seeking unspecified damages and saying Mr. Ray had abused them emotionally, physically and sexually.

They claim that the school was negligent and violated a federal law meant to combat human trafficking.

Sarah Lawrence College

Sarah Lawrence College for years has promoted itself as an experimental and progressive haven, a leafy enclave where students design curriculums and believe in what its president has called ‘the underlying goodness of others.’

‘You are different. So are we’ was a slogan the school used. Some students saw it as a declaration that they would be understood and valued.

Where is Larry Ray now?

After being sentenced in 2023, Ray was imprisoned, where he remains.
