Last Friday, Allison Mack – formerly of Smallville – was arrested in Brooklyn, New York on sex trafficking charges stemming from her involvement in NXIVM. Anyone else being held in jail with Allison Mack can let out a sigh of relief, because the chance they’ll wake up to find her crazy eyes staring back at them, asking “Would you like to reach executive success?” has been dropped to zero percent.
According to NBC News, Allison was released yesterday on a $5 million bond. The previous day she pled not guilty to charges of sex trafficking and forced labor stemming from her activity as NXIVM’s number two under Keith Raniere. A judge refused to release her from detention at the time, saying her lawyers failed to offer a “sufficient” bail package related to how serious the charges were. Someone decided that $5 million was the magic number. Her mother Melinda Mack was present yesterday to co-sign on the $5 million bond.
Allison has been released to her parents in Rossmore, California, where she has been placed on house arrest. She’s only allowed to travel to the southern district of New York for her court appearances. Sources from inside the courtroom claim that Allison Mack looked emotionless and wasn’t crying.
Allison is due back in court on May 26th. She’s rumored to be negotiating a plea deal. I just hope that a NXIVM member doesn’t use that opportunity to usurp Allison’s position as the #2 and start recruiting using that $5 million bond as lure. “Why slave away at a 9-to-5 job when you could learn the secrets of NXIVM’s success and make so much money, you could easily make a $5 million bond”
