2 mins read

Actress Allison Mack, known for playing Chloe on “Smallville,” will be sentenced to three years for her role in the sex cult case.

Mack pleaded guilty in 2019 on charges stating that she manipulated women into becoming sex slaves for the group, NXIVM, under spirtual leader, Keith Raniere. Ranieri was sentenced to 120 years in prison.

Mack wrote a letter filed with the court last week, where she stated that devoting herself to self-improvement guru “was the biggest mistake and greatest regret of my life,”.

Due to advisory sentencing guidelines, Mack would have faced between 14 and 17.5 years behind bars. Mack’s defense team argued in court papers that probation or a sentence to home confinement is more appropriate. Prosecutors have agreed that any prison term should be below the guidelines’ range because of her cooperation.

“The NXIVM saga and the story of Ms. Mack’s descent have been a tragedy for all involved. But that need not, and should not, be the end of the story for Allison Mack,” Mack’s lawyers wrote in court papers.

Mack was sentenced to 36 months for racketeering and conspiracy. Both sentences will be served concurrently. She will also have three years of post-release probation. Mack was also fined $20,000.

According to reports, Rainere fled to Mexico with Mack and other members to try to rebuild the cult there, He was arrested and sent to the United States in March 2018. Mack was arrested days later.

Mack aided in the investigation by providing information about how Raniere promoted “the use of demeaning and derogatory language, including racial slurs, to humiliate ‘slaves,’ government documentation said, She provided a recording of a conversation she had with Raniere about the branding, NBC4New York reports.

Mack issued an apology.

“I am sorry to those of you that I brought into NXIVM,” she wrote. “I am sorry I ever exposed you to the nefarious and emotionally abusive schemes of a twisted man.”
