Allison Mack and Keith Raniere came face-to-face on Friday in Brooklyn federal court. It’s the first time the Smallville actress has seen Raniere, the alleged leader of a sex cult purportedly involving Mack, since he was arrested in Mexico in March.

A judge has scheduled a trial for the pair to begin on Oct. 1. Both Mack and Raniere have been charged with sex trafficking, sex-trafficking conspiracy, and forced-labor conspiracy for their involvement in the alleged sex cult.

Mack and Raniere have separate legal representation and did not look at each other at all during today’s status conference, according to Fox News, which reported that Mack “appeared nervous and shaken up in court, focusing her gaze mostly on the floor except when looking up at the judge.”

Raniere pleaded not guilty on all charges on Friday. He and the 35-year-old actress have been accused of running a secret sorority called DOS within the self-help group NXIVM, which was founded by Raniere. Mack, his alleged co-conspirator, supposedly recruited women as sex slaves, coerced them to perform sexual acts, and branded them with their initials.  (more...)
