SMALLVILLE Star Allison Mack Shares Regrets For NXIVM Sex Cult Crimes Prior To Being Sentenced

Allison Mack has pleaded guilty to sex trafficking and other crimes related to the NXIVM cult led by Keith Raniere, but prior to being sentenced, the Smallville alum shared a lengthy apology...

Allison Mack only took on a handful of projects following her decade-long stint in Smallville, and we'd later learn she was busy being embroiled in a sex cult known as NXIVM. 

Arrested by the FBI in 2018, Mack pleaded guilty to charges of trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labour conspiracy. Accusations of money laundering and identity fraud followed, while charges of racketeering and racketeering conspiracy were also added. Now, the actress - who played Clark Kent's best friend Chloe Sullivan - is going to be sentenced on Wednesday, June 30.

Prior to that, she was given the opportunity to express her regrets for the role she played in NXIVM, and Mack issued a lengthy apology (likely in the hope it will reduce her sentence). 

"This was the biggest mistake and regret of my life," she said in an excerpt shared by The Hollywood Reporter. "I am sorry to those of you that I brought into Nxivm. I am sorry I ever exposed you to the nefarious and emotionally abusive schemes of a twisted man. I am sorry that I encouraged you to use your resources to participate in something that was ultimately so ugly. I do not take lightly the responsibility I have in the lives of those I love and I feel a heavy weight of guilt for having misused your trust, leading you down a negative path."

Raniere has been found guilty on charges of sex trafficking, conspiracy and possession of child pornography, while Mack is alleged to have been tasked with recruiting his "sex slaves." A number of former victims have talked about being branded with his initials and forced to engage in sex acts against their will, so chances are the Smallville alum is facing serious jail time. 

Needless to say, we're not expecting Chloe to return in Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum's planned Smallville follow-up that will take the form of an animated series if and when it happens.
