Troubled TV actress Allison Mack was spotted in California on Wednesday, one day after being released on bond from a Brooklyn federal court in connection with a sex-trafficking case. She'll be living with her parents. NY U.S. District Court Judge Viktor Pohorelsky released Mack but prohibited from using any electronics and can only travel for court appearances and legal meetings.
Prosecutors say she helped recruit sex slaves for leader Keith Raniere and his group. Mack has pleaded not guilty to recruiting women to join the secret organization known as Nxivm.
Authorities have accused Raniere of running a secret society within Nxivm (pronounced "Nexium") where women were branded with his initials, put on extremely restrictive diets and forced to have sex with him.
Raniere was arrested in March, and Mack was arrested last week.
Upon joining, members, who numbered as many as 50, were required to provide information about family and friends, nude photographs and rights to their assets, which were used to blackmail them into staying, according to prosecutors. As part of the judge's ruling, Allison Mack can no longer communication with past and present members of the alleged "cult". Nxivm released a statement saying that they are working to show his innocence and true character.
Over several months in 2016, Mack attempted to contact Watson using Twitter.
The U.S. Attorney's Office said Raniere, during the past two decades, established a series of purported self-help programs under the name Nxivm with hubs in the U.S., Mexico, Canada and South America.
Allison Mack is best known for playing Chloe Sullivan on "Smallville".
Girls star Lena Dunham came into the answers when Mack hailed her as her hero for being creative "without any fear" as she said she wanted to "write, direct and star in her own movie", while she let viewers know her favourite things: cucumber and salsa and roasted kabocha (buttercup) squash, E.E. Cummings and William Shakespeare and lilies.
