Smallville actress Allison Mack pleaded guilty in a New York court Monday to racketeering charges related to her role in a cult-like group whose leader has been accused of sex-trafficking.

Mack entered her plea as jury selection was about to begin in the trial of her co-accused, Keith Raniere, the founder of NXIVM, a self-improvement organization that prosecutors have likened to a pyramid scheme.

Mack wept as she admitted manipulating women into becoming sex slaves for Raniere, known to followers as “Vanguard.”

“I believed Keith Raniere’s intentions were to help people, and I was wrong,” Mack told a federal court judge in Brooklyn.

Mack was charged with conspiracy to commit sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit forced labour.
