Brooklyn, NY, United States (4E) – ‘Smallville’ actress Allison Mack has pleaded guilty to charges relating to her involvement in the controversial self-help group that later turned out to be a sex cult in New York.
A spokesperson from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York told People that Mack pleaded guilty to charges of racketeering conspiracy and racketeering.
Prosecutors accused the actress of recruiting sex slaves for NXIVM co-founder Keith Raniere. Nxivm, and its subgroup DOS, is described as an all-female secret society in New York in which women were reportedly forced into being sexually subservient “slaves” for Raniere.
Following the above charges, Mack is facing a minimum prison sentence of 15 years if convicted.
Last month, Mack’s lawyer filed a motion to delay her trial to give him more time to negotiate a plea deal with the actress. Said motion, however, was denied.
Mack is one of the most prominent members of the said cult and is one of the six people being accused of their involvement in sex trafficking, racketeering, forced labor, wire fraud, and other offenses pertinent to their roles in the organization.
The ‘Smallville’ actress was particularly accused of recruiting women into DOS, which purported to present itself as a self-help, mentorship group for females to help members address their weaknesses.
NXIVM executive Nancy Salzman and her daughter, Lauren, have also pleaded guilty, CBS reported.
Actress Clare Bronfman, daughter of the late billionaire and former Seagram chairman Edgar Bronfman Sr., is also being accused for her alleged involvement in the group.
