NXIVM Cult Member Allison Mack Gets Early Release From Prison

Must read

“Smallville” actress and NXIVM cult member Allison Mack has been released early from her three-year prison sentence. Mack was released early on Monday morning (July 3) on good behavior, just two years into her sentence.

In 2018, the actress was arrested and indicted on charges of sex trafficking as well as forced labor. She originally faced 14 to 17 and a half years in prison but was able to lower her sentence due to cooperation. By 2021, Mack was officially sentenced to three years in prison for her leadership role in the self-proclaimed “self-help” group.

The NXIVM group was led by Keith Raniere and based out of Albany, New York. In its attempt to target women in the entertainment industry, and subject them to abusive practices, including skin-branding, Raniere was sentenced to 120 years in prison for running a sex trafficking ring. The women who were involved in NXIVM were said to be used for labor and sex.

Before her sentencing, Mack wrote a letter of apology for everything that came from her involvement in the group.

“This was the biggest mistake and greatest regret of my life,” Mack wrote.

Mack also stated that “[She] believed, wholeheartedly, that his mentorship was leading [her] to a better, more enlightened version of [herself].”

Allison Mack had a successful acting career starting at a very young age. Although, it wasn’t until 2001’s superhero show “Smallville,” that she saw a significant rise in popularity.

Along with “Smallville,” Mack also made appearances on the comedy show “Wilfred.”

In June 2021, Variety released her full statement regarding her involvement with NXIVM, in which she details her reflections upon the incident and issues various apologies.

“To this date, it has been over three years since I last communicated with most of you. This period of isolation has been the most devastating, but transformative time of my life,” Mack wrote.
