Mack was one the recruiters and lead deputies for NXIVM, a cult group disguised as a self help organization. Keith Raniere was sentenced in October to 120 years imprisonment for racketeering, sex trafficking and other charges.
Recently released documents show that federal prosecutors requested a more lenient sentence for Mack. They claimed she was cooperating in the case against Rainere. Mack also provided a recording of Raniere's ceremony where Raniere was branded on the women.
Jacquelyn Kasulis, acting United States Attorney, stated that Mack had the potential to provide more substantial assistance if she had made the earlier decision to cooperate. However, Mack provided significant, detailed, and highly corroborated information that assisted the government's prosecution.
Mack is best known as an actor for her role in the WB series Smallville. Raniere was brought to trial by Nicole , a woman who identified herself as Nicole . She testified she was an actor and that Mack convinced her to become a "slave" in NXIVM under the pretense of mentorship. She claimed that it would "fix" what she "was feeling. She had to give "collateral" including a sex tape, a falsely claimed letter claiming that her father sexually assaulted her. Nicole testified that Mack orchestrated Raniere's abusive sexual encounters.
Jay, a woman also known as , testified that Mack said to her that Raniere needed to be seduced in order for her to heal her trauma from past sexual abuse.
Mack pleaded guilty in April 2019 to racketeering allegations against her for her participation in the NXIVM trial.
Mack wrote in a letter to court that he was sorry for the people he brought into Nxivm. I'm sorry that I exposed you to the evil and abusive emotional schemes of a man. I regret that you were encouraged to take part in something so horrible.
