In federal court documents filed in California, Dallas real estate heir and investor Trammell Crow Jr. is accused by two women of financially supporting and participating in an alleged human-trafficking ring that victimized them over the course of 12 years.

It is important to recognize that, while accusations can be made, nothing is proven until the legal process has concluded. Wealthy individuals and celebrities are often targeted by lawsuits to garner publicity. Whether Crow was involved or not has yet to be established.

Last November, Julia Hubbard and Kayla Goedinghaus filed a complaint in the United States District Court for the Central District of California against dozens of individuals and businesses, including Crow and even a Texas Ranger sergeant named Cody Mitchell.

In their sworn complaint, Hubbard and Goedinghaus assert that a man named Richard Hubbard ran a human-trafficking operation allegedly “with the essential financial assistance and influence” of billionaire Crow.

The two women allege that under the direction of Richard Hubbard, a psychologist, Dr. Benjamin Todd Eller, falsely claimed that they were “seriously psychiatrically troubled” in order to secure heavy dose prescriptions of “Xanax, Adderall, Oxycodone, Marinol, Soma, Lorazepam, Ambien, and Trazadone.”

While Eller was unable to write these prescriptions himself as a psychologist, a number of medical doctors reportedly participated in the scheme. The women claim they informed the medical doctors of their abuse, but none stopped or assisted them in any way.

Each of these healthcare providers is also named in the complaint.

These drugs were then allegedly used to control the women, and if they refused to participate in various sex acts were withheld or threatened to be withheld, causing the two to fear for their lives.

In their complaint, the women claim Crow “was a key” to the scheme’s “existence and long running success,” which they assert began in 2010.

The women claim that in exchange for financial support, Richard Hubbard would “supply drugs for Crow’s parties, would force [Julia] Hubbard to have sex with Crow’s then-girlfriend in front of Crow…, would force Goedinghaus to have sex in front of Crow…, and would traffic other victims” to Crow’s “Forced Sex Parties.”

Julia Hubbard also claims that she appealed to Crow directly to stop this abuse, but he “took no action” and instead served as the conduit to bring other “co-investors and clients” into the scheme.

Among these alleged “co-investors” was Coe Juracek, named as a senior managing director of Crow Holdings Capital in the court documents.

The complaint asserts that Juracek was “well compensated” as an employee of Crow, “in part to maintain his silence regarding what he knew about Crow’s Forced Sex Parties.”

The women also claim that Richard Hubbard employed the services of Texas Ranger Cody Mitchell to threaten them with “arrests under false charges,” and discourage them from seeking the help of law enforcement.

Allegedly, Mitchell sent Richard Hubbard a photograph of him in his police cruiser with a bottle of alcohol and his penis exposed that was reportedly shown to the women as a threat.

One of Crow’s attorneys, Kenneth Stone, provided comment to The Sun, saying, “The story shared by the Plaintiffs is upsetting and paints a picture of numerous troubled and broken domestic relationships.”

He continued, “However, the account of events linking our client, and many others, to this story is both absurd and blatantly false.”

“We are certain this will be made clear in future legal proceedings,” he concluded.

Stone indicated that Crow’s legal team will make a formal request to have him dismissed from the case at an upcoming hearing.

    I can’t speak to this Crow case, but I do know…

    “Jeffrey Epstein didn’t kill himself.”

    The government is complicit in a cover-up.
    They have never released the list of names in the black book.
    Whitney Webb has a tremendous amount of information about Epstein.

      I bet you, if those names in the black book were black people it would have BEEN released ,seconds after Epsteins death, Racism White Supremacy in ACTION.

      • Delores Newman

        Ignorant comment. There are many to be released who are black. You actually think blacks in rap are poor innocent victims. Lol.

  2. Mac Smith

    Pretty far fetched. I think you should be a little more sure of the facts before you use uncorroborated accusations to drag people’s name through the mud.

    • Delores Newman

      There is nothing far fetched when it comes to these evil people. Hasn’t the last years since 2008 taught you anything. If it can be thought of or spoken they can and will do it.

    Mr Smith. That is exactly why the Clarence Thomas story is out. To bury this one. Good job!
