Smallville Actress Allison Mack Pleads Not Guilty in Sex Cult Trafficking Case, Bail Hearing Set


On Friday, Jezebel reported that Smallville actress Allison Mack (she played Clark Kent’s best friend Chloe Sullivan) was arrested for her involvement and recruitment with sex cult DOS (“dominus obsequious sororium,” Latin for “master over the slave women”), part of the secretive group Nxivm. Mack, alongside cult leader Keith Raniere, have been charged with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor conspiracy. After pleading not guilty Friday afternoon, Mack is set appear in appear in Brooklyn federal court for a bail hearing later today.

That does not mean, however, that members of the cult are free. According to Page Six, actress India Oxenberg, the 26-year-old daughter of Dynasty star Catherine Oxenberg and granddaughter of Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia, was a victim of Nxivm and her family believe her to be “brainwashed” by Raniere and Mack.

Representatives for Mack declined to comment.

Update (4:51 p.m.): Mack’s bail hearing has been moved to Tuesday afternoon.
