Actress Allison Mack sentenced to three years in prison for sex cult
American actress Allison Mack has been sentenced to three years behind bars for her role in the Nxivm sex cult.
Mack, 38, admitted racketeering and conspiracy charges in April 2019 related to her efforts to recruit women.
In 2020, cult leader Keith Raniere was given 120 years in prison for his crimes – including forcing women to be his sexual “slaves.”
In a letter before sentencing, the actress begged for forgiveness from her victims.
The letter addressed to “those who have been harmed by my actions” was filed to the court by her lawyers, who requested that she face no prison time for her crimes.
“I threw myself into the teachings of Keith Raniere with everything I had,” she wrote.
“I believed, whole-heartedly, that his mentorship was leading me to a better, more enlightened version of myself… This was the biggest mistake and regret of my life,” Mack continued.
“I am sorry to those of you that I brought into Nxivm. I am sorry I ever exposed you to the nefarious and emotionally abusive schemes of a twisted man,” she added.
Mack was best know for her role in the hit US TV series Smallville. She fled to Mexico with the group’s leader as authorities closed in on them in 2018.
Her lawyer said since the arrest she has been living in her California family home while taking university courses and working in catering.
