SMALLVILLE Actress Allison Mack Reports To Prison Early To Serve Her 3-Year Sentence
Allison Mack was sentenced to three years in prison earlier this year for her involvement in the NXIVM cult, and has reportedly surrendered to authorities 2-weeks early to begin her stint behind bars.
We were all shocked to learn of former Smallville alum Allison Mack's involvement with the NXIVM cult, but the actress ended up getting off fairly lightly... all things considered.
After pleading guilty to racketeering charges - which could have landed her a 14-17 sentence under the current guidelines - Mack was handed a relatively light 36-month stretch that was set to start on September 29. However, she surrendered to authorities on September 13, and is now behind bars at FCI Dublin in the East Bay area outside San Francisco.
We're not sure why Mack decided to begin her sentence early, but it could be that she was hoping to avoid media attention.
Mack is said to have been shown leniency due to her pivotal involvement in the investigation of NXIVM leader Keith Raniere, which ultimately contributed to his conviction. He is now serving 120 years in prison for racketeering conspiracy charges, sex trafficking, forced labor conspiracy charges, and wire fraud conspiracy charges.
In addition to her stint behind bars, Mack will be on supervised release for another three years once she's released, and will have to pay a $20,000 fine and put in over 1000 hours of community service. It's highly unlikely that she'll actually serve the full 3 years, of course, and will probably be out after a year for good behaviour.
