TV actor Allison Mack, who pleaded guilty to her role in a sex trafficking case involving the cult-like group NXIVM, has been released from a California prison, according to a government website. .

Mack, best known for her role as young Superman’s best friend in “Smallville,” was sentenced to three years in prison in 2021 after pleading guilty two years earlier to allegations that she solicited women became a sex slave for NXIVM leader Keith Raniere.

Online records maintained by the Federal Bureau of Prisons say Mack, 40, was released Monday from a federal prison in Dublin, California, near San Francisco. Her release was first reported by Albany Times-Union.

Mack avoided a longer prison sentence by cooperating with federal authorities in their case against Raniere, who was eventually sentenced to 120 years in prison after being convicted of sex trafficking charges.

Mack helped prosecutors gather evidence that Raniere had created a secret society of brainwashed women who were given his initials and forced to have sex with him.

In addition to Mack, members of the group include an heir to Seagram’s liquor fortune, Clare Bronfman; and the daughter of TV star Catherine Oxenberg of the famous “Dynasty”.

Mack later denied Raniere and expressed “regret and guilt” before her sentencing in federal court in Brooklyn, New York.
