Smallville Actress Allison Mack Is Negotiating a Possible Plea After Sex-Trafficking Arrest

Actress Allison Mack is working out a possible plea following her Friday arrest on sex-trafficking charges in connection with Nxivm, a controversial self-help group and alleged “cult” based in New York, PEOPLE learns.

Mack, 35, and federal prosecutors disclosed their pending plea negotiations in a joint petition filed Friday, asking the court to exclude the next several days from the larger period of time under which Mack’s speedy trial must begin.

The application, obtained by PEOPLE, shows both parties sought the exclusion “because they are engaged in plea negotiations, which they believe are likely to result in a disposition of this case without trial.”

The prosecution and defense “require an exclusion of time in order to focus efforts on plea negotiations without the risk that they would not, despite their diligence, have reasonable time for effective preparation for trial,” the petition continues.

The judge in Mack’s case approved their request, court records show. She had been scheduled to return to court for a detention hearing on Monday.

Mack faces three federal charges in connection with Nxivm, whose co-founder Keith Raniere was arrested in Mexico in March on the same three accusations. Both are accused of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy for their alleged roles in running a secretive sub-group within Nxivm involving “masters” and “slaves.”

The former Smallville costar faces at least 15 years in prison if convicted on all of her charges. She reportedly pleaded not guilty during her first court appearance in the case, in New York City, on Friday.

Mack — who appeared in FX’s Wilfred and The Following, on Fox, after Smallville ended — has previously discussed her connection with Raniere. “Over the course of several years, Mr. Raniere mentored Allison in her study of acting and music,” her website stated until her arrest (after which it was taken offline).

A representative for Mack has declined to comment to PEOPLE on her arrest. Attempts to contact her attorney, Sean Stephen Buckley, have not been returned.

Raniere’s lawyer could not immediately be reached by PEOPLE. He has yet to be arraigned.

Nxivm, reportedly formed in 1998 and based out of Albany, New York, has been the subject of scrutiny from both law enforcement and journalists as it came under fire from Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg, whose estranged daughter, India, joined the group in 2011.

“I hope the arrest of Ms. Mack will continue to expose what Nxivm is — a dangerous cult — and the members, including my daughter, will come to that realization and find their way back to their loved ones,” Oxenberg, 56, told PEOPLE after Mack was arrested.

For the past two decades, an estimated 16,000 people have paid as much as $ 3,400 for an executive coaching workshop offered by Nxivm, which promises to take participants on a journey of personal discovery and development, according to previous PEOPLE reports.

Nxivm has not responded to numerous requests for comment from PEOPLE but issued a statement in support of Raniere soon after his arrest, writing in part: “We are currently working with the authorities to demonstrate his innocence and true character.”

In the fall, the group denounced a New York Times article about them as “a criminal product of criminal minds.”

William H. Macy on Shameless Son’s Arrest for Alleged DUI: ‘Hollywood Is Tough on Kids’

 

William H. Macy is a concerned father — on- and off-screen.

The Shameless actor recently spoke out about his TV son Ethan Cutkosky’s arrest for an alleged DUI, acknowledging that growing up in the spotlight can be challenging for young actors.

“I love those guys,” he told TMZ of the Showtime series’ Gallagher brood, who struggle to raise themselves and deal with their alcoholic father, played by Macy.

“I worry about them,” he added. “A young person growing up as an actor — Hollywood is tough on kids.”

Of 18-year-old Cutkosky, who plays Carl Gallagher, Macy, 67, said he’s a “great guy.”

Cutkosky was arrested Wednesday in Los Angeles for allegedly driving under the influence, according to multiple reports.

Burbank police pulled Cutkosky’s vehicle over after it was allegedly spotted straddling traffic lines, the Associated Press reported. He was later arrested, with blood-alcohol test still pending.

Cutkosky, who was reportedly driving an orange BMW, was given a field sobriety test during the pull-over, TMZ reported. Sources told the outlet that Cutkosky allegedly admitted to smoking marijuana that night.

According to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department records obtained by PEOPLE, Cutkosky was released on a $ 5,000 bail by Thursday morning. He was charged with a misdemeanor but no further information on his charges was available.

Reps for Cutkosky did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment, and the Los Angeles Police Department would not comment further.

French Police Arrest 16 in Relation to Kim Kardashian Robbery

IN THE BAG: French police have arrested 16 people in connection with the armed robbery of Kim Kardashian West in Paris in October, French media reported on Monday.
Police carried out a series of arrests in Paris and its suburbs early Monday morning, newspapers including Le Monde and Le Figaro reported. DNA left at the scene of the crime was used to track down at least one of the suspects, who was already known to police for previous crimes, the reports said.
A spokesman for Paris police referred enquiries to the Paris prosecutor’s office. Officials there were not immediately available to comment. According to French law, authorities now have up to 96 hours to charge the suspects or let them go.
At least two men dressed as police officers held up Kardashian West at gunpoint in the luxury apartment where she was staying during Paris Fashion Week last October. The robbers reportedly forced the night watchman of the discreet guesthouse known as the No Address hotel to let them into the apartment.
The thieves made off with two cell phones and an estimated $ 10 million of the star’s jewels, including her 20-carat engagement ring, and left her bound and gagged in the bathroom. The
