Tim Ballard Sued By Different Women For Sexual Assault

Tim Ballard, whose real-life experiences saving kids from sex traffickers served as the inspiration for the film “Sound of Freedom,” has been sued by five women on charges of sexual violence and assault.

The case, which was submitted on Monday in the Third Judicial District Court of Utah, was brought one month after it became known that Ballard had resigned from Operation Underground Railroad, the nonprofit organization he formed to rescue children.

An outside company hired by O.U.R. was looking into Ballard for allegedly forcing at least seven women to pose as “wives” on international missions—a charge he has rejected.

Earlier this month, retired US Homeland Security agent Ballard called the accusations against him “false.” In a statement released on Tuesday by The Spear Fund, his brand-new anti-trafficking charity, he once more refuted the allegations.

In the lawsuit submitted on Monday, a woman going by the name “WW” said she contacted Ballard on Instagram in April 2021 because she thought the man she was seeing might be a trafficker.

Ballard allegedly encouraged the woman to talk about her worries with him in person at his office in Lehi, Utah. Ballard apparently asked the woman if she had ever considered going undercover, to which she allegedly replied “No” but added that she would think about it. According to the lawsuit, the woman said she was subsequently asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement and not to discuss anything with anyone.

The woman claimed that Ballard had discussed with her a strategy known as “Couples Ruse,” wherein he would take women along on operations to prevent the traffickers from suspecting that they were part of a sting operation.

The lawsuit claims that although Ballard claimed to have rigorous guidelines for the “Couples Ruse,” including no kissing or touching in a sexual manner, he actually utilized it as a means of grooming the ladies.

According to the lawsuit, Ballard once told WW that she couldn’t trust a person whom she thanked for aiding in her recovery from a prior sexual assault. The suit claims that WW trusted Ballard because she did.
