'Smallville' actress Allison Mack pleaded guilty to blackmailing two women as part of NXIVM, a New York-based controversial cult, which has been branded as a sex cult by many. The actress is scheduled to be sentenced on Wednesday, June 30. The leader of NXIVM, Keith Raniere was convicted of sex trafficking and sentenced to 120 years in prison.

Allison Mack, 38 was arrested in April 2018 for her ties with NXIVM. She was charged with sex trafficking and forcing women to be slaves in the cult. The actress asked US District Judge Nicholas Garaufis in Brooklyn to spare her prison time and sentence her to home confinement or probation instead. The actress faces a jail term of 14 to 17.5 years.

Mack's lawyers said in a court filing last week, "She cannot undo what has been done, and she will have to live with the regret for the rest of her life. But Ms Mack still holds the potential to be valuable to society, as a family member, as a friend, as a helper to those in need and as a cautionary tale."

During NXIVM leader Keith Raniere's trial former members testified in the group, women were kept on starvation diets, branded with Raniere's initials and in some cases ordered to have sex with him. Mack and other leaders of the cult were accused of using nude photos and other compromising materials to blackmail members into complying. Mack admitted that she forced two women (identity not revealed) into doing work for the group by blackmailing them to release damaging information about them.

Federal prosecutors have not requested a specific sentence for Mack yet but they have said it should be less than the 14 years called for by federal guidelines in light of her "substantial assistance" in the investigation of NXIVM and Raniere. 'Smallville,' ran from 2001 to 2011 and featured a young Clark Kent before he became famous as 'Superman'. Allison Mack played Chloe Sullivan, his close friend.

'She doesn't regret a thing'

Fans took a dig at the actress, claiming that 'she doesn't regret a thing'. One user commented, "I don’t think she regrets a damn thing. If her beloved Keith was not already in jail she would still be recruiting for him. Aka Ghislane." Another wrote, "She should get jail time for what she did and all the harm she caused. She'd still be doing it today. She's just trying to get out of facing any justice." One user tweeted, "Allison mack is asking for no jail time. if that happens there is no justice."

Some fans also tweeted, "Yes, I adore Chloe Sullivan from Smallville. No, I do NOT like Allison Mack, and I wish her a long prison sentence. See? You can separate actors from their characters, it's not that hard. Allison being a horrible human and Chloe being a fantastic character can both be true, " and "Still so surreal to me the whole Allison Mack situation it doesn't seem real. Was so into the Chloe Sullivan Smallville character thought she was so cute it's the strangest thing. My heart goes out to the victims caught up in what she was involved in hope they can find peace."
