Mack apologized by letter for surrendering “wholeheartedly” to Keith Raniere, the cult leader, sentenced to 120 years in prison.

Days before sentencing, Mack wrote a letter to the judge in which he wrote: “It is now of the utmost importance to me to say, from the bottom of my heart, I am very sorry.”

“I gave myself to the teachings of Keith Raniere with everything I had. I believed, with all my heart, that his mentoring was leading me to a better, more enlightened version of myself. I devoted my loyalty, my resources, and ultimately my life to him. This was the biggest mistake and the biggest regret of my life, “he said at the time.

Nxivm: an alleged self-help group that served to sexually abuse a long list of women

Raniere was sentenced last October by a New York court to 120 years in prison for taking advantage of the alleged self-help group he had founded to sexually abuse a long list of women.

In addition to Mack, several prominent personalities have been implicated in the case, such as the heir to the Seagram’s liquor empire, Clare Bronfman, who last September was sentenced to six years and nine months in prison, after also pleading guilty.

Raniere was arrested in Mexico in March 2018 after being indicted in a New York court for sex trafficking and conspiring to sex trafficking and forcing forced labor.

In 1998, this supposed guru of personal motivation created the organization Successful Executive Programs, through which he gave five-day workshops for which he charged up to 5,000 dollars (4,200 euros).

Years later he founded Nxivm, the sect he established north of New York City and where he forced attendees to take additional classes at a higher price and bring other people to “move up” within the internal ranks of the organization and thus get privileges.

The story took an even darker turn when in 2015 Raniere formed a secret society within Nxivm called DOS, supposedly “to empower women and root out weaknesses in the curriculum.”

These women eventually became his sex slaves, forced to perform household chores and branded with the initials of the sect leader in a painful ceremony without anesthesia in which their skin was cauterized in an area close to the pubis.

In addition, Nxivm victims were extorted with compromising information about friends and family, nude photographs and rights to the belongings that they themselves contributed. For this reason, many were afraid of leaving the group or not obeying, according to the accusation.
