Allison Mack’s alleged former sex slaves are feeling a sense of relief after the Smallville actress pleaded guilty to racketeering charges, a source told RadarOnline.com.
Mack, 36, pleaded guilty to one count each of racketeering conspiracy and racketeering in Brooklyn Federal Court on Monday. Her guilty plea was a part of a deal she reportedly struck with the government in the high-profile NXIVM sex cult case.
As Radar readers know, Mack was initially charged with multiple counts of racketeering and sex trafficking. She was accused of being a “slave master” to slaves within an alleged inner sex ring of NXIVM known as “DOS.”
A source close to NXIVM told Radar that Mack’s alleged former slaves feel “an incredible relief as to the current events” of the case.
Mack’s guilty plea followed similar guilty confessions of mother-daughter defendants Nancy and Lauren Salzman.
NXIVM founder Keith Raniere, Seagram’s heiress Clare Bronfman and secretary Kathy Russell are the remaining co-defendants in the case.
The source added that some of Mack’s alleged ex slaves are also less distressed because the actress’s plea means “they may not have to testify.”
Mack currently faces a maximum prison sentence of 40 years. She is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 11, 2019.
Sources previously told Radar that Mack is “terrified” of going to prison.
The 36-year-old has been living under house arrest at her parents’ California home. The insider revealed that while the former actress is not yet in prison, she has been living “a nightmare and has gone through tremendous anxiety and fear.”
