Larry Ray Trial Update From The Courtroom: Sarah Lawrence College Sex CULT.
Larry Ray has ties to the CIA, Mikhail Gorbachev, Rudy Giuliani, and former NYPD Police Commissioner, Bernie Kerik.
Foley Square, Manhattan, New York City, New York (TRL) - The case of United States v. Ray began on Thursday, with Lawrence "Larry" Ray facing 17 counts of money laundering, sex trafficking, violent crime in aid of racketeering and forced labor conspiracy.
This is what is so alarming, as a former Sarah Lawrence student: There's one thing about that college that never changes, which is that it's small and everyone knows each other's business. So the administration is saying they had no idea they had this sex cult was going on on college campus but the evidence that's coming out in this trial says something else."

Ray allegedly manipulated students at Sarah Lawrence College in Yonkers, New York into giving him money and performing sex acts in front of him.
In addition to being the best man at the wedding of former NYPD Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik, Larry Ray once brokered a meeting between Rudy Giuliani and Mikhail Gorbachev.
Santos Rosario testified in court today and the prosecution is still presenting their case at the SDNY's Thurgood Marshall Courthouse in Manhattan.
Ray has stated he has worked for the CIA and another "US intelligence agency" in Kosovo.
The one-time best man at the wedding of 40th NYPD Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik, Ray was born Lawrence Grecco before assuming the last name of his step-father. Kerik once helped him get a six-figure job at Interstate Industrial Corporation and the pair had met in 1995 when Kerik was still a young NYPD police detective and then-NYC Department of Corrections investigations director after being promoted from being Rudy Giuliani's chauffeur. Ray has asserted in the past that he worked for an American intelligence agency in Kosovo, and he once brokered a meeting between Rudy Giuliani and Mikhail Gorbachev. According to an eyewitness, a Genovese capo attended his 1988 wedding.
Roberta is an alumna of Sarah Lawrence College, a once all-female university until becoming coeducational in 1968. Ray moved into the house of his daughter and her roommates before moving into the room of a female friend of her daughter, who at the time had a boyfriend. In addition to the abuse the victims endured, Ray also treated them to expensive dinners and clothes that he would pay for in cash.
He once suffocated a woman in a hotel room with a plastic bag in order to coerce her back into prostitution, something she was attempting to stop doing. He ended up pimping the woman at a rate of $1,000,000 a year when it was all said and done. Ray also on at least one occasion directed a male and female victim to partake in sexual intercourse with each other.
He threatened to hit several victims with a hammer and even goaded two of them until they were admitted into mental hospitals. Roberta describes Ray as a "middle-aged bald guy" who appears as if he could be a character in a Quentin Tarantino movie.
The FBI found multiple cell phones, audio recording equipment, and a lie detector machine in his house upon raiding it. Ray also reportedly told some of the victims he was aware of mind control. Law enforcement also found a lock on the refrigerator, as Ray had allegedly been depriving the victims of food as a means of coercion.
Isabella Pollok, alleged co-conspirator, will go on trial this summer.
Santos Rosario has testified in court and reportedly started to involve his sisters in the sex cult, with one of the sisters being described as Ray's wives upon his arrest, along with alleged co-conspirator Isabella Pollok. Rosario had poor mental health history, once attempting suicide according to his mother. Larry Ray attempted to persuade him to attempt suicide again on at least one occasion. Rosario dated Larry Ray's daughter, Talia, who had "some sort of relationship" with psychology professor, Marvin Frankel, who died in 2018.
Referring to Frankel, Glass stated: "He was always known as very inappropriately close with female students. That was his reputation."
Roberta describes Ray as being extremely paranoid and "a hoarder", and brought up a conversation she had recently with a DA who could opined he thought the students at Sarah Lawrence were smart. Glass asserts that members of cults in fact tend to have IQs that are higher than average, not lower, and that falling prey to a cult leader is affected by factors other than intelligence.
Speaking of intelligence, when I first heard of Ray's connection to Mikhail Gorbachev, I immediately thought of the CIA. It turns out, Ray boasted of his work as an international CIA operative to several of the victims and his ties to intelligence is a topic I will revisit more in-depth later this week.
