“The worst mistake of my life.”

This is how the American actress Allison Mack defined in a letter her participation in the Nxivm sect, for which she was sentenced to three years in prison this Wednesday.

The 38-year-old woman admitted extortion and conspiracy charges in April 2019 related to her role in recruiting women for the group led by Keith Raniere.

Last year, Raniere was sentenced to 120 years in prison for multiple crimes, including forcing women to be his sexual “slaves”.
