Prosecutors say alleged sex cult is trying to intimidate witnesses

Actress Allison Mack, best known for her role as Clark Kent's clever confidant Chloe on CW's "Smallville", was indicted on Friday on charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy, according to a statement released by the Justice Department.

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

When reached for comment by BuzzFeed News, a representative for Mack said, "At this time, I have no comment regarding the arrest of Allison Mack". Mack is scheduled to appear in federal court in Brooklyn on Friday, according to Page Six. The secret group within NXIVM was called "DOS", or known as "Lord/Master of the Obedient Female Companions", within which Raniere was known as "The Vanguard".

The Guardian states she is said to have acted as a key recruiter for the group - alongside the "leader", Keith Raniere.

Raniere has called NXIVM a self-help group, but investigators allege it was a multi-level marketing scheme used as a ruse to enslave and traffic women for sex.


Raniere will be arraigned on a date that is still to be determined. The organization is based in Albany, New York with centers in the United States, Mexico, Canada, and South America.

The Smallville actress - who played Chloe Sullivan on the Superman show - has allegedly been arrested for being involved in Nxivm, a "cult" thought to have been run out of a house in NY.

Mack allegedly collected "collateral" from her slaves - like sexually explicit photographs and letters containing damaging accusations against their friends and family - which prosecutors claimed she could use to scare off witnesses. Mack also reportedly forced the women to have sex with Raniere, who was her own "master".

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. 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.

In March, Raniere was arrested outside Puerto Vallarta by Mexican federal police.
