BROOKLYN — Former 'Smallville' star Allison Mack (Clark Kent's best friend Chloe Sullivan and, ironically, his partner in fighting crime) pleads guilty to racketeering conspiracy and racketeering on the morning of Monday, April 8 in connection with her involvement in the scandal surrounding the group NXIVM and their leader Keith Raniere.
“I’m here to plead guilty before your honor,” Mack said as she wept.
Judge Nicholas Garaufis offered Mack tissues.
“I must take full responsibility for my conduct," the actress continued. "I am very sorry for my role in this case. I am very sorry to my family and to the good people I hurt through my misguided adherence to Keith Raniere’s teachings."
While posing as a self-help organization, NXIVM is accused of sex trafficking and being a cult-like group recruiting women through the aid of Mack.
"I believed Keith Raniere’s intentions were to help people and I was wrong," Mack said.
Mack was released into federal custody after posting $5 million bail. If convicted for conspiracy to commit forced labor and sex trafficking, Mack faces 20 years with the possibility of life in prison.
Opening statements are scheduled for Monday, April 29.
