Allison Mack Arrested: Reportedly Charged For Alleged Role In NXIVM Sex Cult

Comicbook/DC reported that the cult is known as DOS, standing for "dominus obsequious sororium", which is Latin for "master over the slave women".

Added FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge William F. Sweeney Jr., "Today we announce an additional arrest, and an indictment, in a case that brought to light an inconceivable crime".

Raniere, who police arrested March 25 for forced labor and sex trafficking, is alleged to have lured women into joining his cult, blackmailed them with compromising photos, branded his initials into them, and forced them to be his sex slaves. 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.

If convicted of the charges, Mack and Raniere each face a minimum of 15 years and up to life in prison.

Mack pleaded not guilty to the charges against her when arraigned on Friday afternoon before United States Magistrate Judge Cheryl Pollak. The source claims that Mack, 35, is allegedly connected to NXIVM.

Prosecutors say she helped recruit sex slaves for leader Keith Raniere and his group called NXIVM (NEX'-ee-um). "This Office and our law enforcement partners are committed to prosecuting predators who victimize others through sex trafficking and forced labor". "The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants' benefit", Donoghue said. There was speculation that she was under investigation for ties to the cult after the original criminal complaint against Raniere, listed a "co-conspirator number 1" described an actress who starred in promotional videos with the leader.

Investigators said Raniere preferred exceptionally thin women, so "slaves" had to stick to very low-calorie diets and document every food they ate.

Raniere, 57, was arrested in Mexico, brought to the US on March 26 and is being held without bail in Brooklyn.

Mack appeared in "Smallville", a TV series about a young Clark Kent, from 2001-2011. New members were also restrained and forced to say "Master, please brand me, it would be an honor", before a symbol was cauterized into each woman's skin just below her hip. Mack allegedly ordered the slaves to engage in sexual intercourse with Raniere.

"CC-1 is an actress and is now understood to be one of the women with whom Raniere maintained a sexual relationship prior to the development of DOS", the documents stated.
