After Sex Cultist Larry Ray Found Guilty He Asks for 15 Years Blaming Ex Lax Cupcakes

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 6 – Larry Ray was found guilty of sexual exploitation, prostitution, forced labor and money laundering on April 2, 2022. Inner City Press live tweeted the verdict here and below. And see book, here.

On January 6, 2023, Ray's Federal Defenders put in a memo asking for the minimum sentence, 15 years, and blaming Ray's actions beginning with Ex-Lax in cupcakes and a manipulative mother. They say that negative media coverage is punishment enough. They put in letters from Martha C. Ray, Larry Grecco - then letters entirely redacted. We'll have more on this.

On November 1, Judge Lewis J. Liman set a hearing on post-trial issues: "ORDER as to Lawrence Ray: Count Fifteen of the trial indictment under Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 29 on November 15, 2022 at 11:30 a.m. The hearing will be held in-person in Courtroom 15C at the 500 Pearl Street Courthouse. The parties should be prepared to discuss the following issues: (1) whether there was sufficient evidence that Female Victim-1 suffered "physical injury" as defined in New York Penal Law § 9."

On November 8, into an SDNY courthouse empty on Election Day, Ray's Federal Defenders submitted an argument that Claudia Drury's terror "did not meet the elements of physical injury" -- this despite testimony about suffocation to the point of passing out.

But when the November 15 in-person hearing came, Inner City Press was there, but not Larry Ray. His Federal Defenders said he was in the hospital with lessions. Judge Liman expressed doubts about the timely of Ray's legal issues, but agreed to postpone until the next Monday, with sentencing moved to January 20.

On the next Monday, November 21, Inner City Press was there - but again, no Larry Ray. The argument went forward, thread here sdny
