Actress Allison Mack pleaded guilty in a federal court in Brooklyn for her involvement in the NXIVM cult case.
Mack, who is best known for her role in the TV program Smallville, was sued in April 2018 for indictments for sex trafficking, sexual conspiracy, and conspiracy to do forced labor – crimes she was previously not guilty of, Variety reported.
Mack is 15 years in prison for being convicted.
According to prosecutors, Mack recruited women in NXIVM, a network of self-help programs in Albany, NY. The recruits, Variety said, were told that the group would help empower women, but the prosecutors claimed the organization was set up as a pyramid scheme, with courses that cost thousands of dollars. Representatives for the state also claimed that the leader of the group, Keith Raniere, established a secret sex cult in the organization, in which & # 39; slaves & # 39; were branded with their initials in their pelvis area.
Mack is accused of being paid to two of her "slaves" to have sex with Raniere.
