'Smallville' actress Allison Mack granted bail in sex trafficking case

Keith Raniere and Allison Mack

Actress Allison Mack walked out of Brooklyn federal court after posting a $5 million (Dh18 million) bond and agreeing to stay under house arrest in California.

As a result of her arrest she is now facing charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy for incidents that allegedly took place between February 2016 and June 2017.

She has pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking.

Women who successfully recruited were called "masters" within the group, while others were referred to as "slaves". NY U.S. District Court Judge Viktor Pohorelsky released Mack but prohibited from using any electronics and can only travel for court appearances and legal meetings. She will live with her parents at their home in Los Alamitos as she awaits trial.

Raniere, 57, was arrested in Mexico, brought to the USA on March 26 and is being held without bail in Brooklyn on sex-trafficking charges.

Numerous women were branded with a symbol containing the initials of the leader of the group.

Newgarden wins Indy Grand Prix of Alabama for third time
The race had been scheduled for 90 laps with a two-hour limit because of the heavy rain that contributed to some spinouts. All in all, a good weekend. "This is the first weekend this year that we've had no issues, no drama", said Hunter-Reay.

Nxivm continues to deny the accusations made against the leadership.

Prosecutors say she helped recruit sex slaves for leader Keith Raniere and his group called NXIVM (NEHK'-see-uhm). Nxivm released a statement saying that they are working to show his innocence and true character.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said Raniere, during the past two decades, established a series of purported self-help programs under the name Nxivm with hubs in the U.S., Mexico, Canada and South America. She stared straight ahead in silence as she and her lawyers fought through a media scrum to a waiting vehicle, with at least three photographers tripping over each other and toppling to the sidewalk along the way.

In the video, the former CW star explains that her favorite part of the job is "watching the women who are involved in Jness completely transform and evolve" before she goes on to praise Girls writer and star Lena Dunham.

The actress played Chloe Sullivan, a teenage friend of Superman, on "Smallville".
