According to FOX News crime report, federal case says that the police and security staff at Sarah Lawrence College could have stopped Lawrence “Larry” Ray from starting an on-campus sex cult if they had strictly applied the no-pets rules and asked him why he was in a junior room. The case was brought before the US District Court for the Second Circuit. Three victims put in a report saying that Ray sexually assaulted, groomed, and influenced students, while staff and security were not aware of what was going on. The lawsuit went into great depth about the claims. It has been said that the school did not continue with an investigation or do anything else, even though parents and other people in the community were worried and warned about the health and safety of the students. After being found guilty in April 2022, Ray was charged with federal crimes for sex trafficking, blackmail, and forced labor. Because he was found guilty, he was given a sixty-year jail term. Sarah Lawrence College said it didn’t know about Ray’s actions and that the investigation would lead to different results. In answer to the claims made in the lawsuit, this comment was made public. The victims are asking for losses that are not mentioned to make up for the pain and suffering they have been through.
The victims are asking for money to make up for their pain and suffering. The case is a very important lesson about how important it is to do quick and thorough investigations, especially when there are concerns from the community, to protect kids’ safety and well-being and stop harm from happening.
