Allison Mack of "Smallville" arrested for role in sex cult

'Smallville' actress Allison Mack arrested for role in alleged sex cult

Allison Mack has been arrested for her role in alleged sex slave cult Nxivm.

Friday's hearing will determine the fate of Mack, hopefully, justice will be served for all the women she helped Raniere entrap. Video of Raniere's arrest showed Mack appearing emaciated as she watches federal agents take him into custody.

A grand jury indicted Mack, a longtime NXIVM follower, of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy for her role in DOS, a group led by NXIVM co-founder Keith Raniere that purported to be a women's empowerment sorority.

Raniere has called NXIVM a self-help group, but investigators allege it was a multi-level marketing scheme used as a ruse to enslave and traffic women for sex. "The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants' benefit", Donoghue said.

"Mack and other. masters recruited. slaves by telling them that they were joining a women-only organization that would empower them and eradicate purported weaknesses the NVIVM curriculum taught were common in women", prosecutors said.

Women were forced into giving up collateral to join the group and were coerced into having their pubic region branded with Raniere and Mack's initials as well as having sex with Raniere, according to prosecutors.

Frank Parlato, who's written extensively about NXIVM based on interviews with former members for The Frank Report, says DOS works on a master-slave hierarchy with Raniere at the top followed by Mack. He was charged with sex trafficking and forced labour.

Raniere, 57, was reportedly arrested while surrounded by women at a $10,000-a-week luxury villa last month.

A statement on the NXIVM website reads: "In response to the allegations against our founder, Keith Raniere, we are now working with the authorities to demonstrate his innocence and true character".

However, Kreuk released a statement saying she had no idea about DOS.

If convicted of the charges, Mack and Raniere each face a minimum of 15 years and up to life in prison.
