Smallville Actress Allison Mack Gave Government Key Tape That Brought Down NXIVM Sex Cult Leader: Prosecutors

A week earlier Smallville actress Allison Mack’s sentencing, federal prosecutors revealed previously unknown details about her cooperation against NXIVM cult leader Keith Raniere. She even gave the authorities a recording roughly a month prior to his trial showing the franchise service into the secret sisterhood of gender”slaves” that burnt women with the cult leader’s thought.
Prosecutors demonstrated the scope of Mack’s alliance for the very first time at a memorandum on Monday night, which claims for some leniency at her forthcoming June 30th sentencing in light of her”considerable aid to the authorities.”
The memo explores how Mack detailed the inner workings of this”secret sisterhood” of all Raniere’s slaves known as DOS, brief for Dominus Obsequious Sororium, that was exposed by the New York Times at 2017:
Mack also provided details regarding crimes committed by other first-line DOS”masters,” comprising assignments to”seduce” Raniere and efforts to find Raniere a virgin”successor.” Mack detailed Raniere’s role in devising assignments for Mack’s”slaves,” such as, among other matters, Raniere’s repeated requests for naked photographs in Mack’s DOS”slaves”; Raniere’s instructions regarding the”seduction” assignment; and Raniere’s encouragement of the use of demeaning and derogatory language, such as racial slurs, to humiliate DOS”slaves”
Prosecutors call it”highly probable” that Mack’s public accountable plea motivated her co-conspirators to follow suit, noting that Seagram’s heiress Clare Bronfman and NXIVM bookkeeper Kathy Russell failed so months after she admitted to racketeering along with a connected conspiracy count. Mack had provided information to the authorities about Bronfman’s role intimidating DOS victims, prosecutors say.
Mack also provided information regarding Bronfman’s efforts to frighten and undermine DOS victims, as well as Bronfman’s efforts to initiate a criminal cybercrime evaluation against an individual Bronfman believed to be critical of Raniere and NXIVM. Mack also provided relevant mails, files and records to the authorities.
Perhaps most significantly, Mack provided the authorities with a recording that, at trial, served as crucial proof of Raniere’s part in devising the branding service where DOS”slaves” were branded with a logo that, unknown to them, represented Raniere’s own ribbon.
As described in court records, that tape showed Raniere seemingly instructing Mack on holding down women”almost like a forfeit” and hammering control over them through”safety”
Raniere: Would you think the individual who’s being branded should be completely nude and kind of held to the table like a, kind of almost like a forfeit? I really don’t know whether that, that’s a feeling of entry, you know. So, [unintelligible]
Mack: Yea
Raniere: Yup, you may also obviously videoing it, and videoing it invisibly out of different angles or whatever gives security.
Mack: Mmhm
Raniere: So, it probably should be much more vulnerable place kind of a thing.
Mack: OK
Raniere: Laying on the back, legs slightly, or thighs spread directly like, like feet, feet being held into the side of this table, hands probably above the head being held, nearly like being tied down, like sacrificial, whatever.
Mack: OK.
Raniere: Along with the individual should ask to be branded.
Mack: OK
Raniere: If say, please brand me it’d be an honour, or anything like that. An honor I would like to use for the remainder of my entire lifetime, ” I really don’t know.
Mack: OK
Raniere: Plus they need to probably say that until they’re held down, so it does not seem as they are being coerced.
Prosecutors say that the authorities”was not previously in possession” of that recording, and Mack’s cooperation was”never publicly declared,” though notes from her proffer sessions were provided to Raniere’s defense group under seal.
Mack’s sentencing guidelines range is figured between 14 and 17.5 years .
Citing her aid, prosecutors desire U.S. District Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis to sentence her below that. Mack’s victims are expected to speak at her sentencing hearing.
