'Smallville' Actress Allison Mack Arrested For Alleged Role In Sex Cult

Super Troopers 2

Smallville actress Allison Mack was arrested Friday by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in connection to a case involving a sex trafficking cult allegedly lead by Keith Raniere, who was previously arrested in March.

Mack was last seen in Mexico, looking shocked and confused over the arrest of cult leader Keith Raniere, according to video obtained by The Sun.

Mack, 35, of Brooklyn, N.Y., appeared in Eastern District Federal Court Friday afternoon. "The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants' benefit", Donoghue said.

But prosecutors say DOS was actually a sex-slave ring led by Raniere, with women known as "slaves" who reported to "masters" who ultimately reported to Raniere himself. Mack is set to be arraigned in Friday, while Raniere will be arraigned on a later date. The complaint also stated the actress was Raniere's slave and had sex with him. Raniere was the sole male in DOS and the leader.

Court filings say that in 2015, Raniere, who also went by "Vanguard", created a secret sub-organization with NXIVM called "DOS", an acronym for a Latin phrase that loosely translates to "Lord/Master of the Obedient Female Companions", or "The Vow".




Mack is being accused by two unnamed women, identified in official documents as Jane Does 1 and 2, of directly or implicitly requiring them to engage in sexual activity with Raniere.

He allegedly branded victims' skin with his and Mack's initials. Authorities allege Raniere coerced women into a master-slave relationship and forced them to endure 20-30 minute branding "ceremonies" wherein they were branded with a design composed of his initials. Allison's co-star Kristin Kreuk (Lana) was at one point part of the group, but has released a statement that she has been away for several years and was only a part of things when it seemed to be a self-help/empowerment type operation.

Raniere and Nxivm have been the subject of criticism for years, dating back to at least 2012 when the Times Union of Albany published a series of articles examining the organization and allegations that it was like a cult.

If convicted, Raniere and Mack face mandatory minimum sentences of 15 years to life in prison.
