Following a two-year sentence for her involvement in a sex trafficking case connected to a cult-like organization, US actor Allison Mack was granted an early release from prison.
In April 2019, the 40-year-old entered a guilty plea to counts of racketeering and conspiracy relating to her efforts to bring women into the Nxivm sex cult.
Mack, who is best known for her work on the TV show Smallville, received a three-year prison term.
She was released on Monday, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
As a self-help program, Nxivm—pronounced “nexium”—began in 1998. It states that it has collaborated with more than 16,000 people, including Mack and the son of a previous Mexican president.
According to the prosecution, Mack assisted in finding and preparing women to serve as Keith Raniere’s sex partners. Mack acted as one of his top female deputies even though Raniere, 62, was at the top of this system and the lone guy.
His initials were supposedly tattooed on the female recruits, who were required to have sex with him in order to join the Albany, New York-based organization.
Before being given a sentence, Mack expressed regret for being a part of the organization and apologized to individuals she said had been injured by her conduct.
She apologized to everyone she had brought into Nxivm. I’m sorry I ever let you witness the evil and emotionally abusive plans of a depraved man.

What Are People Saying Online?
Here are what some Twitter users are saying.
Allison Mack is trending with [NXIVM]. And it’s freaking hysterical.. how many coincidences before all you who attack Q tards or whatever, have to just face reality. Trump went around all the typical avenues to share information bc all typical avenues were captured. How many coincidences before mathematically impossibe?@BrainStorm_Joe
Another fine example of how sick and twisted the American justice system is. Racketeering gets you 100 years but sex trafficking gets you less than five.@NuConcept
You don’t get out early for free.
Who else can you find attached to the NXIVM cult? Who is Mark Vincente? Who are The Bronfman Family? What is a sigil? Who is Thomas Girardi? Who is Allison Mack, who is she really? When does a bird sing?@ProjectChaney
Here are what some Reddit users are saying.
It’s great that she helped get convictions for Ranier for cooperating in the investigation but her sentence was far too light for what she did.@Idnk
I’ve always wondered what small time actors do when they get out of a situation like this. Obviously they can never act again, and It’s doubtful they have enough money to live for the rest of their life, even with the media deals she’ll get after this. So what do they do…? Start sending out CV’s? Imagine being the the person in the office that was instrumental in the operation of a sex cult. Or going to Costco and seeing a literal celebrity convicted rapist stocking the shelves.@Alundra828
In the case of Lillo Brancato Jr., he was able to get some very small-time acting gigues. He won’t act in an Oscar-worthy movie anytime soon, but I think it’s possible to make a living acting in “straight-to-DVD” type of B-movies. If that still doesn’t pan out, she will have to find some small business in an obscure part of the country and just eke out a living there. I know he’s not an actor, but Anthony Weiner was a disgraced Congressman, who went to jail for sexting a minor. After he came out he’s been working as a manager of some very small glass manufacturing company. He’ll never run for office again, but he still can make a living.@Yakima42
