Larry Ray was once a calculated puppet master, controlling others through violence, humiliation, and manipulation, but today the 62-year-old sits in jail.

Ray is currently housed at the federal jail MDC Brooklyn as he awaits sentencing for a series of federal crimes, according to jail records.

Ray, who is the subject of Peacock's new documentary "Sex, Lies and the College Cult," was convicted in April of racketeering conspiracy, violent crime in aid of racketeering, extortion, sex trafficking, forced labor, tax evasion, and money laundering offenses after a decade of physically, psychologically, and emotionally abusing several of his daughter’s friends, reported The New York Times.

Prosecutors said the abuse began after Ray moved into his daughter’s dorm room at Sarah Lawrence College in 2010, then spent a decade using “sexual and psychological manipulation and physical abuse” to manipulate and control some of the students.

“Ray’s tactics included sleep deprivation, psychological and sexual humiliation, verbal abuse, threats of physical violence, physical violence, threats of criminal legal action, alienating the victims from their families and exploiting the victims’ mental health vulnerabilities,” prosecutors said in a statement announcing the conviction.

Ray often forced his victims to falsely confess to perceived grievances against him, including damaging his property, authorities alleged in the statement. He then used the videos to extort his victims and their family of money.

It took a jury just four hours to find Ray guilty on 15 federal counts. He is now facing the possibility of life in prison.

Nicholas Biase, a spokesman for the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, told Oxygen.com that although Ray was originally expected to be sentenced in September, the date got pushed to Dec. 1.
