TV ac­tress pleads guilty in case of sex-traf­fick­ing

The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

With jury se­lec­tion be­gin­ning at the fed­eral case against a cult-like up­state New York group, TV ac­tress Allison Mack pleaded guilty Mon­day to charges she manipulated women into be­com­ing sex slaves for the group’s spir­i­tual leader.

Mack, 36, wept as she ad­mit­ted her crimes and apol­o­gized to the women who pros­e­cu­tors say were ex­ploited by Keith Raniere and the pur­ported self­help group called NXIVM.

“I be­lieved Keith Raniere’s in­ten­tions were to help peo­ple and I was wrong,” Mack told a judge in fed­eral court as she pleaded guilty to rack­e­teer­ing charges.
