Actress pleads guilty to racketeering charges
NEW YORK – Allison Mack, an actress who was among the most high-profile members of the cultlike group Nxivm, pleaded guilty to racketeering and racketeering conspiracy charges Monday in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District in Brooklyn.
Mack, who is best known for her role as Clark Kent’s friend in the television series “Smallville,” was one of six defendants in the federal racketeering indictment.
Some women in the organization were branded with the initials of Nxivm’s former leader, Keith Raniere, and forced to have sex with him, federal prosecutors said.
They said Mack helped recruit women, telling them they were going to become members in a female mentorship group. Mack worked with Raniere in the sex trafficking and forced labor of one woman and the attempted sex tracking of another.
