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

Actress Allison Mack was indicted on sex-trafficking charges Friday as part of an ongoing probe into NXIVM, a cult-like self-help group based in the Albany area whose leader is accused of treating women as sex slaves. Mack, 35, was seen chasing Raniere as police led him away, New York Post's Page Six reported.

U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Richard P. Donoghue and William F. Sweeney Jr., Assistant Director-in-Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, announced the charges.

Raniere, who allegedly blackmailed women into becoming slaves and branded his initials into their skin, was arrested for sex trafficking and forced labor and brought back to the USA last month. The complaint also stated the actress was Raniere's slave and had sex with him.

"The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants' benefit", Donoghue said. He was extradited to Fort Worth, Texas on Monday and charged with sex trafficking and forced labor conspiracy.

"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. The filings allege that DOS had levels of women "slaves" headed by "masters" in a pyramid scheme, with Raniere at the top and Mack immediately below Raniere.
