The top lieutenant of infamous Sarah Lawrence sex cultist Larry Ray pleaded guilty in federal court on Wednesday to one count of intent to traffic the funds associated with the sex cult in question. 

Isabella Pollok copped to the guilty plea at federal court in Manhattan, telling Judge Lewis Liman that she had helped facilitate financial transactions designed to conceal the source of Ray's income. 

Ray was found guilty of multiple counts of sex trafficking and extortion, among other crimes, in April of this year. A major exposé in 2019 revealed the sordid extent of Ray's depredations at Sarah Lawrence College and beyond, in which it was claimed he kept a group of young adults in a state of pervasive psychological abuse.  

Pollok allegedly took part adjacently in some of Ray's sexual and psychological abuses, including reportedly taunting a woman undergoing torture in a hotel room. 

She will remain free on bail until her sentencing in February, where she faces up to five years in prison.
