Allison Mack, star of TV show Smallville, has pleaded guilty to racketeering charges for her role as part of an alleged sex cult in the US.
Federal prosecutors are going after two properties in upstate New York where they believe Allison Mack and Keith Raniere's alleged sex trafficking crimes took place. A court document details a chilling first-person account from a woman who says she was a former sex slave.
Thanks to the arrest of Smallsville actor Alison Mack, the organisation NXIVM has been making headlines all over the world. Founded by Keith Raniere – who has also been arrested – the group offered people self-help but was allegedly a sex cult that kept women as “slaves”. TV producers have since announced that a documentary series about NXIM will soon reach screens around the world.
Mack is an alleged member of the NXIVM sex cult and is being charged with sex-trafficking and forced-labor charges.
A federal judge agreed on Tuesday to release Allison Mack to the custody of her parents in California.
