Longmont Police was part of a multi-agency effort that sought to bring down a human trafficking operation that operated for nearly two years and involved three adult women.

Earlier this week, the Denver District Attorney’s Office and Boulder District Attorney’s Office announced that 38-year-old Randolph Scott Clark was the target of a grand jury indictment that alleges Clark used various means to meet the three women and ultimately exploited them financially and sexually, according to a Boulder DA’s office news release.

Clark is accused of using a combination of physical violence and threats — along with exploiting their drug addictions — to coerce the women into commercial sex acts and ultimately traffic the women for his own gain, according to the news release.

The indictment also alleges that Clark targeted and sexually assaulted a young child on multiple occasions, the news release states. He is ultimately charged with human trafficking of a minor for allegedly creating and distributing child pornography materials of her and paying her for sexual acts, the news release states.

Clark is charged with 30 counts, including charges related to the four victims and could face up to 155 years-to-life in prison if convicted on the current charges, the news release states.

Longmont Police worked on the case along with the Boulder District Attorney, Denver District Attorney, Denver Police Department, Louisville Police Department, Boulder County Sheriff’s Office and Boulder Police Department.

The Leader has requested comment from Longmont Police.

Clark’s case will be jointly prosecuted by attorneys from the Denver District Attorney’s Office and Boulder District’s Attorney’s Office. The case will be prosecuted in Boulder County.

“This indictment is the direct result of teamwork and collaboration on behalf of the victims,” Boulder District Attorney Michael Doughery said in the news release. “As this indictment reflects, this type of conduct often takes place across jurisdictional lines. With our dedicated Human Trafficking Units, our two officers worked closely with our law enforcement partners,” he said.

“The investigators did an outstanding job on this case,” Dougherty added. “This indictment will have a significant impact on the lives of the victims and the well being of our communities.”  .
