“Smallville” TV star Allison Mack has pleaded guilty in the ongoing court proceedings for her role in the NXIVM “sex cult”.
The actress, who played Chloe Sullivan in ten seasons on “Smallville”, admitted to two federal counts: one count of racketeering conspiracy, and one count of racketeering.
“I have come to the conclusion that I must take full responsibility for my conduct and that’s why I am pleading guilty today,” said Mack.
In early May, Mack waived her right to a speedy trial, opening up the possibility of making a plea deal, although none has yet been struck. A source familiar with the case says prosecutors remain open to talks. Mack was released on $5 million bail into her parents’ custody. In the years since her first exposure to the Jness women’s empowerment seminar in Vancouver, she had traveled to the nether reaches of the Nxivm identity and into the darkest recesses of Raniere’s pathology. The trial is set to begin Oct. 1. If convicted, both Mack and Raniere face at least 15 years behind bars.
