Nxivm sex cult “slave master” Allison Mack apologized “to those who have been hurt by my actions,” in a letter filed in Brooklyn Federal Court ahead of his June 30 conviction.
Calling his dedication to deranged Nxivm frontman Keith Raniere “the biggest mistake and the greatest regret of my life,” Mack crawled, “I’m sorry for those of you I brought into Nxivm. I’m sorry to have already exposed you to the infamous and emotionally abusive ploys of a crooked man.
The former “Smallville” actress was a leading member of Raniere’s depraved group – in which women were branded as animals with his initials and blackmailed into having sex with him.
Mack, 38, pleaded guilty in April 2019 to charges of racketeering and racketeering conspiracy, including extortion and forced labor. Each count carries a prison sentence of up to 20 years.
She is confined to her home pending her conviction, which has been delayed for several months.
“This period of isolation was the most devastating time, but also the most transformative, of my life,” she wrote in the letter filed on Friday.
She acknowledged that her home confinement provided “the strength I needed to face the darker parts of myself and come to terms with the pain my actions have inflicted on so many people I love.”
“It is now of paramount importance for me to say, from the bottom of my heart, I am so sorry… I threw myself into the teachings of Keith Rainire [sic] with everything I had.
Mack apologized to friends and relatives who “fought to show me the truth about Nxivm and Keith”.
“I pushed you away and kept silent to you as you tried to save my life.” … I lied to you, over and over again, in order to protect the illusion that I was so deeply determined to believe.
“The list of those harmed by the collateral damage of my destructive choices continues to grow as I become more aware of how my choices have affected those around me,” she wrote. , adding, “I’m grateful that I survived this living process and stopped when I was.”
