Allison Mack is Pleading Guilty In The Sex Cult Case
Actress Allison Mack, probably best known for her role on Smallville, has pleaded guilty to the charges she faces regarding a sex cult.
The actress played Chloe Sullivan on Smallville. And she was there for a whole ten seasons which makes this her best-known role.
Mack isn’t the only one facing these charges. Keith Raniere is also facing the same charges. As the alleged leader of the program causing all of this. The self-help program was reportedly a pyramid scheme, which took a darker turn than expected. It quickly devolved into female sex slavery, according to reports. The organization specifically targeted females, saying that it was female only and would help with empowerment. Now that we know where things went, it’s hard to believe there was ever any innocent intentions behind it.
Mack is facing a variety of charges. These charges included trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor conspiracy. All these charges were possible thanks to racketeering clauses. The actress had originally been pleading not guilty. But she has since changed her plea.
