A Boulder sex offender has been indicted by a grand jury of using drugs and violence to force multiple women into prostitution and also of paying for sex with a 12-year-old girl.

Randolph Scott Clark was indicted on three counts of human trafficking for sexual servitude, human trafficking of a minor for sexual servitude, pimping, three counts of pandering, sexual assault, invasion of privacy, second-degree assault, inducement of child prostitution, patronizing a prostituted child, sexual assault on a child, sexual assault on a child – pattern of abuse, four counts of sexual exploitation of a child, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, six drug charges, three weapons charges and a special offender charge.

All told, the indictment included 30 charges, and Clark could be facing up to 155 years to life in prison if found guilty on all counts, according to a release from the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office.

“This indictment is the direct result of teamwork and collaboration on behalf of the victims,” Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty said in a statement. “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 well-being of our communities.”

According to the release, Scott, through a combination of physical violence and threats along with exploiting their drug addictions, coerced three women into commercial sex acts.

According to the indictment, he also had sex with a 12-year-old girl and videotaped the act and sent the video to other women. He also paid the girl for oral sex on other occasions.

The agencies that 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. Clark is in custody in the Denver County jail.

Clark will be transferred to Boulder County 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.

“By collaborating with our colleagues in Boulder, we were able to multiply our efforts to stop this alleged human trafficker,” Denver District Attorney Beth McCann said in a statement. “We now look forward to jointly prosecuting (Clark) and securing justice for the community.”

Clark already has two other cases open in Boulder County, including a sex assault on a child case and a previous prostitution case.

Clark is a registered sex offender following a conviction for unlawful sexual contact, and also has a lengthy criminal history including past convictions related to prostitution, according to an affidavit.
