BOULDER, CO— As the result of a multi-agency, collaborative effort to bring down a human trafficking operation, the Denver District Attorney’s Office and Boulder District Attorney’s Office announced a Grand Jury Indictment had been issued on March 14, 2022.
Between and including January 1, 2020, and August 28, 2021, Randy Clark used various means to meet three (3) adult women whom he ultimately exploited financially and sexually. He did so through a combination of physical violence and threats along with exploiting their drug addictions to coerce these women into commercial sex acts and ultimately trafficking these women for his own gain. Randy Clark also targeted and sexually assaulted a young child victim on multiple occasions. He was charged with creating and distributing child pornography materials of her, engaging her in commercial sex acts with other men, and ultimately trafficking this child.
On May 5, 2023, Mr. Clark pled guilty to two counts, Counts 36 and 37 of First Degree Assault (F3), Count 38 Human Trafficking for Sexual Servitude (F3) and Count 39 Attempt to Commit Sexual Assault on a Child (F5). Today he was sentenced to a total of 45 years in the Department of Corrections. He was sentenced on Count 36 to thirty-two (32) years in the Department of Corrections, Count 37 to thirteen (13) years in the Department of Corrections consecutive to Count 36, Count 38 twelve (12) years in the Department of Corrections concurrent to Count 37 and Count 39 twelve (12) years in the Department of Corrections concurrent to Count 37.
Agencies who worked on this case include the Boulder District Attorney, Denver Police Department, Denver District Attorney, Louisville Police Department, Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, Boulder Police Department, and Longmont Police Department.
Chief Deputy District Attorney Christine Rinke and Senior Deputy District Attorney Michelle Sudano stated, “The District Attorney’s Office commends the victims for their bravery and courage in coming forward in this case. This defendant exploited these adult victims and the child victim by using drug addiction, emotional manipulation, physical force and violence. This case highlights the far-reaching impact of these crimes on the victims, their families, and the community at large. This was a collaborative effort by the Boulder County Sherriff’s Office, the Louisville Police Department, Boulder Police Department, Denver Police Department, Denver District Attorney’s Office, and our District Attorney’s Office. We appreciate all of the hard work and efforts that went into this multi-jurisdictional investigation and prosecution.”
District Attorney Michael Dougherty stated, “The victims of the defendant’s horrific conduct spoke in court today. Their statements to the judge reflected the trauma that the defendant inflicted upon them, but also their strength and courage. This lengthy prison sentence is the right outcome and certainly deserved. I am grateful to our Human Trafficking Unit and the multi-agency teamwork that went into this case. Because of their efforts, the victims and the community are safer today.”
“What Randy Clark did to a child victim and the adult women he trafficked was beyond despicable; it was depraved and inhumane,” said Denver DA Beth McCann. “In uniting with our Boulder DA’s Office colleagues to prosecute Clark, we are telling human traffickers that we will bring the full force of the law down on you. I thank the members of our Human Trafficking Unit and the many law enforcement agencies whose work resulted in today’s 45-year prison sentence for Randy Clark.”
