Allison Mack pleads guilty to racketeering charges!

We have been covering Allison Mack’s situation as it has developed and it has now taken on a new twist as Mack, 36, has pleaded guilty to charges that she manipulated women into becoming sex slaves for a cult-like group’s spiritual leader.

Reports indicate that the former Smallville star wept as she admitted her crimes and apologised to the women who prosecutors say were exploited by Keith Raniere and the purported self-help group called NXIVM, based in upstate New York.

“I believed Keith Raniere’s intentions were to help people, and I was wrong,” she told a judge in federal court in Brooklyn, New York City, as she pleaded guilty to racketeering.

After months of reflection since her arrest, she said: “I know I can and will be a better person.” Her sentencing was set for September 11th 2019.

The plea means Mack will avoid going to trial with Raniere, wealthy heiress Clare Bronfman and another member of Raniere’s inner circle, Kathy Russell. All have pleaded not guilty and denied any wrongdoing.
