'Smallville' Actress Allison Mack Arrested in Alleged Cult Sex Trafficking Case

Back in November, a very weird report came to light with actress Allison Mack, most famously known for her role as Chloe Sullivan on the Smallville series.

Allison Mack has reportedly been arrested for her part in a sex cult.

Mack, 35, of Brooklyn, N.Y., appeared in Eastern District Federal Court Friday afternoon.

When word got out that the Feds were investigating the organization, "high-ranking members ... undertook efforts to undermine potential witnesses, including by registering domain names such as [Witness Name] exposed.com, with the intention of publishing damaging information regarding those witnesses", prosecutors wrote in court papers Friday. Raniere, who started the group, has been charged with sex trafficking by federal prosecutors.

"As alleged in the indictment, Allison Mack recruited women to join what was purported to be a female mentorship group that was, in fact, created and led by Keith Raniere", stated United States Attorney Richard Donoghue.

The Republican governors of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona all pledged assistance without such restrictions early last week. During a Tuesday morning press briefing in Washington, D.C., Brown said , "I'm trying to deal with a human crisis".

A grand jury indicted Mack, a longtime NXIVM follower, of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy for her role in DOS, a group led by NXIVM co-founder Keith Raniere that purported to be a women's empowerment sorority. Raniere is reporteldy facing steep sentences if convicted of human trafficking.

Raniere is expected to be arraigned on the indictment at a later date, according to the U.S. Attorney's office.

Officials allege that Nxivm, based in Albany, New York, encourages recruits to pay thousands of dollars for courses to rise through the ranks of the organization and recruit others to do the same. Raniere was arrested on March 25 at a villa near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy.

Fellow Smallville star Kristen Kreuk, who played Lana Lang from 2001-2009, was a member of the NXIVM organization, but cut ties after leaving in 2012.

Last month, Raniere was arrested in Mexico. Amid reports that Mack might be arrested soon, Kreuk was named as the one who recruited Mack into the group years ago, before leaving herself. There is now no set date for Raniere's arraignment.
