Allison Mack Out on Bail In NXIVM Case, Under House Arrest

A U.S. magistrate judge released Mack, known for her role in WB Television's Smallville series, after her parents agreed to put the family's Los Alamitos, California, home up as collateral and Mack, 35, agreed to live with her parents under house arrest.

Business Insider dug up several tweets in which Mack asks Watson to "chat" about her "women's movement". She pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking later that day.

Raniere was arrested last month in Mexico and is now in federal custody.

Ms. Mack was directly below Mr. Raniere and recruited her own "slaves", prosecutors said.

Under the conditions of her release, Mack will be under house arrest and will need to apply with pretrial services before she travels to her lawyer's offices in Manhattan and for future court appearances in the US District Court for the Eastern District of NY in Brooklyn.

Prosecutors say she helped recruit sex slaves for leader Keith Raniere and his group called NXIVM (NEHK'-see-uhm).

Three years later, she tweeted Watson, but didn't use her correct Twitter handle, @EmmaWatson.




Ms Mack is accused of helping founder, Keith Raniere, of helping him to recruit women who were then exploited "both sexually and for their labor". "The Office and our law enforcement partners are committed to prosecuting predators who victimize others through sex trafficking and forced labor". In response to a letter prosecutors despatched to the choose opposing Mack's bail, the actress "was centered on recruiting engaging younger ladies who may meet Raniere's sexual preferences". Raniere has also denied wrongdoing.

Investigators allege Raniere, who was often called "Vanguard" throughout the group, occupied the highest of the pyramid and was the DOS's exclusively male member.

Moreover, DOS slaves have been allegedly "branded of their pelvic areas with a cauterizing pen with a logo that, unbeknownst to them, included Raniere's initials".

There are plenty more disturbing details regarding NXIVM including sex slavery, branding and a diet that restricted women to 800 calories a day.

In March, Raniere was arrested in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and brought back to the U.S.to face charges. Among her tactics, prosecutors say, was presenting the cult "as a women's empowerment group or sorority", which concealed Raniere's involvement. There is security footage captured of what appears to be Mack watching Raniere get taken away by the cops. The judge told her to stay off social media and not speak to anyone connected to NXIVM.

If convicted of the crimes charged, Raniere and Mack each face mandatory minimum sentences of 15 years imprisonment, and up to life imprisonment.
