What was the “cult leader” Sarah Lawrence?

According to the 2020 indictment filed by the New York Times Ray is accused of manipulating his daughter’s boyfriends and other female coeds in 2011.

He is said to have “exposed his victims to sexual and psychological manipulation and physical abuse” under the pretense of “therapy” for nearly a decade.

The indictment said he learned “intimate details about their personal lives, vulnerabilities, and mental health issues under the pretense of helping them.”

He “estranged several of the victims from their parents and convinced several of the victims that they were ‘broken’ and needed Ray to fix them,” it said.

He would then supposedly become controlling and convince her to give him money and sex.

The indictment alleges that Ray used intimidation tactics including sleep deprivation, psychological and sexual humiliation, verbal abuse, physical violence and threats of legal action.

According to the court filing, he was also accused of laundering the roughly $1 million he received by pimping his victims.

One of his alleged victims, Claudia Drury took the position on March 24, 2022, alleging that he used psychological tactics to manipulate her.

She testified that Ray “encouraged her” to have sex with strangers and pushed her toward BDSM culture, allegedly forcing her to submit to him.

Drury also claimed Ray trafficked her as a sex worker and told her to lose more weight to appeal to clients.
