NY woman now a co-defendant in so-called Sarah Lawrence 'sex cult' case
A New York woman is facing federal charges after being accused of conspiring with the father of a Sarah Lawrence College student to force women they met on campus into prostitution.
Isabella Pollok, 29, is now a co-defendant in the case against Lawrence Ray, who was arrested in March 2020 for allegedly sexually and physically abusing at least seven victims and extorting them.
Investigators say it began when Ray, 61, moved into his daughter's Sarah Lawrence dorm a decade ago, gaining the trust of the college students and then manipulating them.
News 12 reported in March that the prosecution showed the judge financial spreadsheets found at his Piscataway home, alleging he earned $700,000 in 2017 and over $1 million in 2018 from prostitution proceeds.
Pollok and Ray are both facing multiple charges.
Pollok is free on bail. Ray, who is being held without bail pending trial, has pleaded not guilty.
