Allison Mack and her alleged sex cult leader Keith Raniere appeared in court Friday in Brooklyn to face sex trafficking charges, ABC7 News reported.

The 35-year-old actress — who is best known for her role as Chloe Sullivan on the CW series “Smallville” — was arrested last month for her alleged part in a sex ring in Mexico called NXIVM.

NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 24: Actress Allison Mack leaves U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York after a bail hearing, April 24, 2018 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. Mack was charged last Friday with sex trafficking for her involvement with a self-help organization for women that forced members into sexual acts with their leader. The group, called Nxivm, was led by founder Keith Raniere, who was arrested in March on sex-trafficking charges. She was released on bail at $5 million. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)

Mack was released on a $5 million bail after federal prosecutors claimed she worked as a slave “master” running a sex cult called DOS that was disguised as a self-help organization.

DOS operates as a master-slave hierarchy, with Raniere at the top and Mack as his immediate subordinate. From there, Mack has several slaves of her own who are then ordered to recruit a group of slaves themselves, and it spreads down from there like a pyramid scheme.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Moira Penza told the members of the press that more arrests are expected in the near future.

“He [Rainere’s] holding up well under the circumstances. He believes in his innocence, and I’m impressed with his stamina,” Rainere’s attorney said, adding that his client isn’t expected to plead guilty.

Mack is reportedly working on a plea deal.

The judge scheduled the trial date for both of them for October 1.

If convicted, both Mack and Rainere could face up to 15 years behind bars with a maximum sentence of life in prison.
