Actress Allison Mack pleads guilty for role in sex cult
Actress Allison Mack, best known her role in US television series Smallville, has pleaded guilty in court to her tole in a sex cult.
In a surreal turn of events, Mack has pleaded guilty to racketeering and racketeering conspiracy charges after she was linked to an alleged sex trafficking operation disguised as a mentoring group.
Mack appeared in a Brooklyn federal court and pleaded guilty to charges related to the suspected sex cult ‘Nxivm’. The actress has admitted recruiting women by telling them they were joining a ‘female mentorship’ group.
In what appears to be a pyramid scheme style outfit, the leader of the project happens to be the only male involved; Keith Raniere. The prosecution claim that Mack served as one of his leading female deputies.
“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,” Richard Donoghue, US attorney for the Eastern District in New York, said in a statement last year.
Mack, who is scheduled to be sentenced in September, faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for each of the two charges.
“I must take full responsibility for my conduct. I am very sorry for my role in this case,” Mack was quoted as saying to the judge. “I am very sorry to my family and to the good people I hurt through my misguided adherence to Keith Rainere’s teachings.”
