'Smallville' Actress Allison Mack Arrested For Role In NXIVM Sex Cult

Kristin Kreuk

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.

Dennis Miller said police were called to the gym around 9:14 a.m. after a report about patrons who were refusing to scan in. Fitness said it is now "exploring potential training content and opportunities to better train our staff".

"As alleged in the indictment, Allison Mack recruited women to join what was purported to be a female mentorship group that was, in fact, created and led by Keith Raniere".

Friday's hearing will determine the fate of Mack, hopefully, justice will be served for all the women she helped Raniere entrap. "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.

NXIVM is alleged to have been an abusive, manipulative cult that forced vulnerable women into sex and obedience.

Raniere was arrested last month and is being held without bail.

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". Other members also reportedly include former "Dallas" star Catherine Oxenberg's daughter India Oxenberg, wealthy Seagram's heiresses Sara and Clare Bronfman, and "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" star Kristin Kreuk. She reportedly forced the potential entrants to provide "collateral" in the form of compromising photos or statements.
