Allison Mack is officially behind bars.
The former Smallville Star reported to the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, inmate records show, two weeks before she was ordered to resign. In June, Mack was convicted to three years in prison when she was one of the NXIVM Top Slave Masters. When The FCI Dublin sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the same low security camp where Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman spent time serving for their roles in the College Admissions scandal.
Mack, 39, pleaded guilty in conspiracy and conspiracy in 2019. She agreed to work with prosecutors in the case of the government against convicted sex cult leaders, Keith Raniere, including audio streaming from the NXIVM founder detailed the branding ritual of the group. Prosecutors demanded a sentence under the age of 14 to 17 1/2 years typically recommended for their crimes.
Although the judge noted that Mack was an “essential companion” of Raniere who “willingly enslaved, destabilized and manipulated other women,” he found three mitigating factors for a lower, three-year sentence.
“First, your attorneys are making a compelling case that you, as the victim of your conduct, are trapped in Mr. Ranière’s coercive and manipulative web,” Judge Garaufis wrote in his sentencing memorandum. “Secondly, you have expressed regret and regret and made significant progress in rehabilitating yourself. And I see no reason to doubt that your efforts and your progress are honest.”
Finally, the judge noted Mack’s assistance in the case of the government against the Raniere, who was sentenced to prison about sex trafficking and other disturbing costs.
Mack called her involvement with NXIVM, which was run as a self-help group, “the biggest mistake and biggest regret of my life.” She also apologized to the victim before June’s sentencing.
