Isabella Pollok Bio – Isabella Pollok Wiki
Isabella Pollok a New York woman who became a co-conspirator to the man who started a sex cult out of his daughter’s dorm at the prestigious Sarah Lawrence College was sentenced to 54 months in federal prison, the U.S. Attorney’s Office confirms.
Isabella Pollok is 31 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
Isabella Pollok who pleaded guilty in September to one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering was sentenced this afternoon in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in Manhattan.
She must report to federal prison in 60 days, U.S. Attorney’s office spokesperson Nicholas Biase tells PEOPLE.
Pollok had previously been charged with one count each of extortion conspiracy, sex trafficking conspiracy, racketeering conspiracy, and money laundering.
Prosecutors said Pollok became a trusted enforcer for Lawrence Ray, who manipulated his daughter’s friends at Sarah Lawrence, a prestigious liberal arts college in Bronxville, N.Y., just outside of New York City.
Ray sexually and psychologically abused a group of her schoolmates, using them to create his own sex cult.
Prosecutors said he isolated his victims from their families, extorted approximately $1 million from at least five of them, forced certain victims to perform unpaid labor, and caused at least one victim to engage in commercial sex acts. In one instance, he tied one of his victims to a chair, covered her head with a plastic bag, and nearly suffocated her before making her give him more than $500,000 she’d earned in forced prostitution.
Ray was sentenced in January to 60 years in prison for extortion, sex trafficking, racketeering conspiracy, and other charges.
Prosecutors said Pollok helped psychologically manipulate and control the victims by threatening them with violence and depriving them of food and sleep.
She held a “privileged position within the Ray Family, acting as Ray’s lieutenant, with respect to his extortionate demands for financial payments, physical labor, and prostitution, and in laundering the criminal proceeds of extortion and sex trafficking through bank accounts and GoDaddy,” according to a sentencing submission obtained by PEOPLE.
“While collecting money from her abused and trafficked college friends, the defendant was spending luxurious nights at the Pierre Hotel on the Upper East Side and buying expensive clothing, beauty products, and high-end lingerie,” according to prosecutors.
