“Smallville” actress Allison Mack entered a Brooklyn courtroom on Monday and pled guilty to multiple charges related to an alleged sex cult/sex trafficking case. Mack pled to multiple charges including forced labor, sex trafficking, and sex trafficking conspiracy.
CNN (@cnn) reported, Mack, 36, was allegedly the co-creator of a program within Nxivm, which was targeted toward luring actors and actresses. Nxivm is a group that claimed to be a self-help program, but prosecutors charge that Nxivm was actually a pyramid scheme in which some recruits were exploited for sexual favors and/or their labor. Mack admitted being a recruiter for the organization. In court papers, multiple women claimed they were blackmailed into doing the organizations work because they had compromising information on them. According to court papers: “Until women recruited others, they were called slaves. Those who successfully recruited were called masters.” Nxivm’s founder, Keith Raniere, who went by the name “Vanguard”, was reportedly the only male member of the group. Raniere has pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking and forced labor.
