A TV and feature film actress was released after being indicted April 19 on charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy in federal court in New York.
Variety reports that Allison Mack, best known to TV viewers for her role on “Smallville,” was released to serve home detention at her parents’ house in Los Alamitos, Calif., after her bail was set at $5 million. Mack’s mother, Melinda Mack, reportedly put up her home as collateral to help make bail.
As we reported previously, Mack, who played Chloe on “Smallville,” pleaded not guilty to charges that she helped recruit women into the cult-like organization Nxivm.
“The expectation is that Mack is cutting a deal with prosecutors to provide information against Nxivm founder Keith Raniere, who was arrested last month in Mexico and remains in federal custody,” Variety notes. “A bail hearing for Raniere is set for next week.”
