Human Trafficker Allison Mack – Did she try to Mack on an Eight-Year-Old?
Smallville actress Allison Mack might not have had much of an Hollywood presence after her show ended in 2011. Sadly, Mack’s victims will feel her presence forever. Following the cancellation of Smallville after the 10th season, she gave an interview to Fine Magazine and explained how this life transition was difficult for her. She claims she sought support, and found it within the mentorship of “self-help” guru Keith Raniere. Mack credited Raniere for her return to work as an actor.
In June 2019, Rainere was convicted of sex trafficking (among other charges). In Mack’s criminal case, prosecutors brought forth evidence showing that Mack “directly or implicitly required [recruits] to have sex with” Rainere, to support their legal complaint. In 2018, Mack was arrested for racketeering due to her role as a recruiter for the cult referred to as “NXIVM.”
The cult allegedly kept members quiet by keeping them captive, beating, starving, and psychologically abusing them into sexual submission.
Survivors of the cult have revealed horrific scars as evidence of NXIVM’s practice of branding women with Raniere’s initials. These same survivors await Raniere’s and Mack’s sentencing set to take place in sometime in 2020.
However, a transcript of Mack’s neighbor’s allegations of Mack’s molestation of an 8-year-old girl may hint that adults were not the cult’s only targets. The neighbor described how Mack was “video taping the girl” while the girl performed gymnastics. He stated that he “saw her feel the 8-year-old up,” describing how Mack rubbed the child’s chest. The transcript clarifies the neighbor’s interpretation of her behavior as being more creepy than playful.
Mack’s conduct with the eight-year-old is not one of the formal charges brought against Mack by the prosecution. It should be noted, however, that the U.S. attorney’s office requested to have Raniere held without bail, stating in a letter that he is a known child predator.
Further research into Mack’s career reveals that she played a role in Night Eyes Three when she was just 11 years old. Reviewers of the movie describe Night Eyes Three as “softcore pornography.”
Could Mack’s performance in this role have influenced Rainere’s interest in Mack?
Do you believe the U.S. attorney’s office statement about Raniere is relevant to Mack’s alleged conduct with the child described above?
