Allison Mack of Smallville to Plead Guilty in Nxivm Sex Trafficking Case

Allison Mack of Smallville to Plead Guilty in Nxivm Sex Trafficking Case

Mack, 36, who originally pleaded "not guilty," also faces charges of sex trafficking, identity fraud, and money laundering.

The actress, who was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in April of past year, was brought in on charges of sex trafficking, conspiracy of sex trafficking, and forced labor conspiracy in relation to the organization that she had reportedly been a part of since 2010.

"I'm very sorry for the victims of this case", Allision said.

The trial for NXIVM leader Keith Raniere was supposed to get underway with jury selection on the morning that his co-accused Allison Mack entered her guilty plea.

Court papers accuse Raniere and his inner circle of forming a secret society of women branded with Raniere's initials and forced to have sex with him.

According to prosecutors, Mack recruited women into NXIVM, a network of self-help programs based in Albany, N.Y. The recruits were told the group would help with women's empowerment.

Irish back in title game
With just two points in the first half, Ogunbowale notched 21 points in the second to lead the Irish with 23 points on the night. As the NCAA's career leader in triple-doubles, Ionescu is used to stuffing the stats sheet.

"I know that I am and will be a better person because of this", she promised.

Mack, who is best known for her role as Clark Kent's friend in the television series "Smallville", was one of six defendants in a federal racketeering indictment filed previous year against members of Nxivm. She confirmed that members are required to give their "master", or recruiter, naked photos of themselves and other blackmail material before joining.

The actress is to be sentenced September 11 on two racketeering counts that each carry maximum terms of 20 years in prison.

Raniere, Mack, and four others were arrested past year for the involvement with NXIVM, a Colonie, N.Y. -based group that claimed to be a self-help organization.

Mack, along with two other defendants - former Nxvim bookkeeper Kathy Russell and Lauren Salzman, the daughter of Raniere's second-in-command Nancy Salzman - had been in "active plea negotiations" with prosecutors, according to the statement in court on March 18 by Assistant U.S. Attorney Moira Penza, reports the Associated Press. If convicted, he could be sentenced to life in prison. Kreuk, who also appeared on "Smallville", reportedly recruited Mack but later left the group. All have pleaded not guilty and denied any wrongdoing, though after three guilty pleas, we're not sure what kind of legs they have to stand on.
