() — Allison Mack, the former “Smallville” actress and high-ranking member of the Nxivm cult, who was sentenced to 3 years in prison in 2021, was released Monday, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
Mack was arrested in 2018 along with several other Nxivm leaders, including Keith Raniere, who was convicted on racketeering charges, previously reported.
Raniere, the founder of the Nxivm company, was sentenced to 120 years in prison in 2020. Mack pleaded guilty to racketeering and racketeering conspiracy charges a month before Raniere’s trial began in 2019.
US District Judge Nicholas Garaufis previously called Mack an “essential accomplice” and a “willing and proactive ally” of Raniere, but also said: “I have no doubt that she was manipulated and felt captive as well.”
