BOULDER-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 today announced that a Grand Jury Indictment has been issued.
Between and including January 1, 2020 and August 28, 2021, Randolph Scott Clark (age 38) used various means to meet three (3) adult women whom he ultimately exploited financially and sexually. He is accused of doing 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. According to the grand jury indictment Clark also targeted and sexually assaulted a young child victim on multiple occasions. 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.
Mr. Clark is charged with 30 counts, including charges related to the four (4) victims and could face up to 155 years-to-life in prison if convicted on the current charges.
Agencies who worked on this case include the Boulder District Attorney, Denver District Attorney, Denver Police Department, Louisville Police Department, Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, Boulder Police Department, and Longmont Police Department.
Mr. Clark will be brought to Boulder where he’ll be advised on the new charges and set for an arraignment. The case will be jointly prosecuted by attorneys from the Denver District Attorney’s Office and Boulder District Attorney’s Office. The case will be prosecuted in Boulder County.
District Attorney Michael Dougherty stated, “This indictment is the direct result of teamwork and collaboration on behalf of the victims. As this indictment reflects, this type of conduct often takes place across jurisdictional lines. With our dedicated Human Trafficking Units, our two offices worked closely with our law enforcement partners. The investigators did an outstanding job on this case. This indictment will have a significant impact on the lives of the victims and the wellbeing of our communities.”
District Attorney Beth McCann stated, “By collaborating with our colleagues in Boulder, we were able to multiply our efforts to stop this alleged human trafficker. We now look forward to jointly prosecuting Randall Clark and securing justice for the community.”
As in every criminal case, these charges are merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty.
