'Smallville' Actress Allison Mack Arrested in Alleged Cult Sex Trafficking Case

Super Troopers 2

The allegations claimeed Mack introduced Raniere to one of his alleged sex trafficking victims, instructing her to do what Raniere said.

Raniere, co-founder of the group called Nxivm (pronounced "Nexium"), was arrested in Mexico and returned to Texas last month.

Federal prosecutors say a television actress best known for playing a young Superman's close friend has been charged with sex trafficking for helping recruit women to be slaves of a man who sold himself as a self-improvement guru.

Since the series ended in 2011, Mack has only appeared in a few minor acting roles. When reached for comment by BuzzFeed News, a representative for Mack said, "At this time, I have no comment regarding the arrest of Allison Mack". "The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants' benefit".

The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle said Mack was indicted "for her role in DOS, a group. that purported to be a women's empowerment sorority". As Raniere was taken from the villa, The Post's Kyle Swenson wrote, citing prosecutors, the women chased after authorities in their own auto at high speed.

Founded in 1998, NXIVM promoted Raniere's teachings as a kind of mystical, executive coaching created to help people get the most out of life.

With Allison Mack facing sex trafficking charges, a close confidante is sharing that they're convinced she's also a victim in this case.

Investigators said Raniere preferred exceptionally thin women, therefore "slaves" needed to stay glued to incredibly low-fat food diets and record every food they ate.

Raniere and Mack are each charged with multiple counts, and could face a minimum of 15 years in prison.

The secret group within NXIVM was called "DOS", or known as "Lord/Master of the Obedient Female Companions", within which Raniere was known as "The Vanguard".

According to documents made public, Allison Mack directed the women to have sex with Raniere and required them to remain celibate, not masturbate, and to grow out their pubic hair to please Raniere.

According to U.S. Attorney's Office, over the past two decades Raniere established a series of purported self-help programs under the name NXIVM, based in Albany, New York with centers in the United States, Mexico, Canada and South America. Mack's Smallville co-star, Kristin Kreuk, was a member of Nxivm for several years but denies involvement with any sex trafficking or even knowledge of DOS.

After reports started surfacing about DOS past year, a letter was posted on the NXIVM website, in which Raniere said, "The picture being painted in the media is not how I know our community and friends to be, nor how I experience it myself".
