What was supposed to be a fun, playful & harmless sexual foreplay has somehow been transformed into an extremely accessable & dangerous outlet for murderers and sex offenders.

The case that brought the entire extreme sado-masochist bondage domination world to its knees was what happened in San Diego, California around 2012 where a 3 person extreme S&M bondage domination sex cult kidnapped a young woman, bound her, tortured her repeatedly, strangled her until she was killed then threw her dead body along side the road.

The whole extreme SMBD community has been driven back underground and went silent... for years because now one can be charged, convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment with no chance of parole for murder.

Las Vegas GOP campaign adviser that made a woman his sex slave

Benjamin Sparks


According to Las Vegas Review-Journal, a Las Vegas political adviser who worked on national campaigns and high-profile Nevada races sexually enslaved and battered his ex-fiancée before police responded to a domestic dispute, the woman told the Review-Journal.

The 46-year-old woman provided copies of emails, text messages and a signed contract laying out her duties as a “slave in training” to Benjamin Sparks.

A Las Vegas police report shows that Sparks, who most recently worked on Republican Cresent Hardy’s campaign to win back the 4th Congressional District seat he held from 2015 to 2017, evaded police after the domestic dispute at the woman’s home on March 29.

Officers determined there is “probable cause to arrest Sparks for domestic battery,” and charges are pending.

In the wake of the #MeToo movement that has revealed sexual harassment and misconduct by political, business and media leaders, Sparks’ ex said she wants the public to know the truth about him.

Mistress: Governor groped, slapped and shoved me during unwanted sexual encounters
by Associated Press

Eric Greitens


JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens initiated a physically aggressive unwanted sexual encounter with his hairdresser and threatened to distribute a partially nude photo of her if she spoke about it, according to testimony from the woman released Wednesday by a House investigatory committee.

The graphic report details multiple instances in which the woman said Greitens spanked, slapped, grabbed, shoved and called her derogatory names during a series of sexual encounters as he was preparing to run for office in 2015.

The report, signed by all five Republicans and two Democrats on the committee, describes the woman’s testimony as credible and notes that Greitens has so far declined to testify or provide documents to the panel. It also outlines instances where the republican governor’s public comments appear to run counter to some of her allegations.

In addition to the legislative investigation and the criminal case, Republican Attorney General Josh Hawley is investigating The Mission Continues, the veterans charity founded by Greitens, as it relates to the state’s consumer protection and charitable registration and reporting laws. That probe came after media reports that Greitens’ campaign had obtained and used a charity donor list in 2015 as it ramped up fundraising for his gubernatorial bid.

Chloe Is Part Of A Extreme SMBD Sex Cult
by Keith McMillan

Who's The Mack?

Actress Allison Mack, best known for her decade run on TV’s “Smallville,” and Keith Raniere, the leader of what authorities allege is a sex cult, were indicted Friday in New York on federal charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit forced labor, the Albany Times-Union reported.

Raniere and Mack are each charged with multiple counts, and could face a minimum of 15 years in prison. Mack was arrested in New York City on Friday and will be held pending a bail hearing Monday*.

Raniere has been in custody since he was arrested in Mexico in March.

Raniere is the founder of NXIVM, which bills itself as a self-help and empowerment organization, but is described by authorities as a cult-like group whose members recruited women to be sex slaves, and branded their pubic regions with Raniere’s initials.

Mack, 35, is alleged by prosecutors to have recruited slaves for pay, forcing the women to have sex with Raniere, and using explicit photos and damaging information to ensure their compliance.

“Mack and other … masters recruited … slaves by telling them that they were joining a women-only organization that would empower them and eradicate purported weaknesses the NVIVM curriculum taught were common in women,” prosecutors said.

But “the victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor to the defendants’ benefit,” said U.S. Attorney Richard P. Donoghue of the Eastern District of New York in Brooklyn.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Moira Kim Penza also said in court that “under the guise of female empowerment,” Mack “starved women until they fit her co-defendant’s sexual ideal,” the Associated Press wrote.

---------------------------------------------------

Friday May 4, 2018

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Former “Smallville” actress Allison Mack appeared before a federal judge in Brooklyn Friday morning along with Keith Raniere, the leader of the self-help group NXIVM.

A trial date has been set for October 1 on charges of sex trafficking.

They have denied wrongdoing.

The pair is accused of coercing women who joined the organization into becoming a part of a secret sub-group where they were expected to act as “slaves” and engage in sex acts.


Raniere's attorney says the sex was consensual.

For someone accustomed to the spotlight, Mack did her best to ignore the crush of media on Friday.

However, this is no red carpet.

Raniere looked at Mack inside the courthouse on Friday but she did not return that eye contact. The co-defendants are due back in court June 12.

This sex trafficking survivor is moving on — by learning how to code

by GlobalPost

(https://i.imgur.com/gZtT4D1.jpg)


When Catie Hart first met the man who would become her trafficker outside of a nightclub in San Francisco, she was impressed by his mature, professorial appearance.

Hart, then 18, had just moved from Colorado, expecting to attend college the next fall, but her encounter with that man — whom she declined to name — would dramatically derail those plans.

“I just moved here all the way from Colorado all by myself, and I didn't realize at the time, of course, but in his mind he was just like, ‘cha-ching.’”

She says that her trafficker intended to groom her for sex work from the start, and before she knew it, that’s exactly what she was doing.

Hart says that the line between boyfriend and trafficker was always blurred, intentionally, so that she cannot even pinpoint any specific time when it became a coercive relationship.

But she’s sure about one thing: After a certain point, leaving was not an option. She says that in addition to psychological manipulation, her trafficker would use threats of violence to keep her from running away.


“For so long, it was, ‘I will kill you if you ever leave me’ … almost every single day, and he would explain very calmly who he would pay, how much it would cost, how they would follow me for months and months and get to know my schedule so that when it happened it would look very random and they wouldn’t be able to pin it back on him.

And he would say these things so calmly,” she recalls.

Twenty years later, Hart says that as both a survivor and more recently as someone providing training to social workers working with victims, sex trafficking has in many ways defined her life until now — and she is ready to move on. She’s finally found a way to do that through an Oakland-based nonprofit organization called AnnieCannons, which she learned about at a workshop they gave in the area.

Their mission is to teach sex trafficking survivors how to develop software and websites.

Jessica Hubley, one of the organization’s founders, wanted to teach survivors something that was actually viable in the job market — and in the Bay Area, where she is based, nothing made more sense than software development.

The Stanford University law graduate say she specifically wanted to work with trafficking survivors because “I hate when smart people are denied the opportunity to innovate because of bias or the circumstances of their birth.

Human trafficking survivors are the most severe example of this.”

Her focus on the need for economic security was reinforced by interviews with trafficking survivors during a 2013 trip to Myanmar with AnnieCannons co-founder Laura Hackney, who was Stanford University’s senior research associate for the school’s Anti-Trafficking Project in the Mekong Sub-Region.

AnnieCannons, named for a female astronomer, would not just train survivors — they’d help women monetize those skills by teaching them how to navigate the industry and find work.

That meant “Giving them a network among each other, connections in government, connections in the social sector, connections in the business world, that they can then leverage to do whatever they want to do,” says Hubley.

She recalls that “The business side of it that was sort of the eureka [moment]. ... We have this huge pool of untapped talent in this very profitable skill, and we have all of this demand for this very profitable skill and the only reason that they’re not going together is because of these biases that people hold that are stupid.

And we don't have them, so like, why not put them together?”

AnnieCannons effectively acts as both a coding camp and a job agency.

They hold their six-month courses at the Alameda County Family Justice Center, where this summer Hart and four other students have been learning HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

The curriculum is split into two core phases: digital literacy and then front-end web development. There is a third optional phase, lasting indefinitely, in which students can choose to attend supplementary workshops and gain additional skills.

From Hubley’s perspective, financial security is the core issue: As long as sex work remains the best way to make a living, many will continue to do it even when they no longer have to.

The stigma and trauma of a survivor’s past, along with the arrest record that many have, can preclude them from finding well-paid work, like in the tech industry.

Before she decided to attend University of California, Berkeley — and eventually become an educator — Hart continued working in a strip club for two years to make a living.

“Even though I have my degree and stuff, I’m not necessarily someone who should go applying to jobs on Indeed.com because all you need to do is Google me and see I have this past, and HR and big corporations don’t like that stuff,” says Hart, adding that oftentimes, when it came to jobs, “I still felt that same feeling like when I was doing sex work, where, like, I didn’t feel like I had other options.”
Hubley wanted her organization to break this cycle by offering women another economically viable alternative, without the judgment sex workers often get from prospective employers.

This is why AnnieCannons places so much emphasis not just on the training program, but also on networking and job placement, so that their students do not have to navigate the industry on their own.

“It’s not just that we find work and then we leave it to our graduates to do all the accounting and the contract and the client management logistics; we actually do all of that for them.

So that the only thing they have to do to make money is be good at software engineering,” says Hubley.

AnnieCannons, which Hubley and Hackney founded in 2013, partners with local organizations and shelters who screen their clients for potential candidates for the program.

Hubley says their students “range from having been born into slavery, like have no memory of not being in their trafficking situation before they got away, all the way up to having a ... college or graduate degree prior to having a romantic partner exploit them.”

The pool of candidates referred to AnnieCannons before the start of each semester is screened through a four-part interview-and-testing process.

Hubley says between 55 percent and 75 percent of applicants pass.

The test includes reading comprehension, a custom-designed, timed, color block test, reaction-time test, and a logic game that simulates the process of programming a robot.

Those that pass the screening and attend the two orientation sessions are invited to the training course.

So far, 30 students have finished the core curriculum, not including the five who are currently studying.

Carla Dartis, coordinator for the Human Exploitation and Trafficking Institute at the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, praises the work AnnieCannons does, but says the volume of students is a small fraction of the trafficking victims in the county.

There are no official statistics for Alameda County, but figures released by the National Human Trafficking Hotline indicate there were 6,083 cases of sex trafficking reported in the United States last year.

Dartis cautions that these numbers do not reflect the full scope of the problem because the majority of cases are never reported.

Trafficking, she says, is up, as “the internet and the different applications have enabled the selling of oneself and the selling at the hands of others to grow exponentially.”

She went on to say that organizations like AnnieCannons are limited by the fact that their prospective students need to have some measure of stability in terms of food, shelter and schedule. Without that stability, many survivors are not able to even start, let alone complete, the program.

“Your odds are just highly against you, which is the other reason why your numbers are so small that access a program and that can get out of a program. Because just the nature of human trafficking says, ‘I am not targeting, I am not targeting that upper-middle class. … I’m really targeting those that are poor.’”

So far, three of eight students have already had to drop out of the current class. “The most critical service that no one has enough of is housing,” says Dartis.

On top of that, many women who have been trafficked would not choose to identify as trafficking survivors because of the shame and stigma involved — and therefore wouldn’t be taking advantage of organizations specifically for trafficking survivors.

"Who has access to it?

Exactly.

Especially because even this cohort, this is only five of ‘us’ and realistically only three of us are really gonna make it through.

There are so many trafficking survivors who meet the criteria of being stably housed and being driven and being logical in their thinking and there’s only five people there," says Hart.

AnnieCannons does not ever ask women specifically about their history of trafficking — they just take the referrals from their case workers.

The class curriculum itself does not have anything to do with sex trafficking, or require the women to take about their past. It’s strictly for software and web design, and Hart says she prefers it that way.

If there’s any conversation about their past, it happens outside of class, according to Hart. “It’s something that seems to be happening a little bit more organically as we’re getting to know each other, and it’s not something we really talk about during class time,” she says.

“They don’t promise to solve all that stuff, which I think is great.”

As she’s nearing the end of phase two of training, Hart says she regularly has to pinch herself, because the prospect of earning a full-time, stable living through coding seems too good to be true. Having already completed the first phase, Hart is eligible to take on database management and cleanup work for $20 per hour.

“I’ve never been happier ...

having a steady paycheck for the first time since I was like 16 and just like actual real financial security where I know I’m going to get paid every two weeks, and I can start to like just settle into my life, finally.”

“I’m so excited for the future for the first time in 20 years,” says Hart.

Lex Luthor reflects on Chloe Sullivan
by Morgan M. Evans

(https://i.imgur.com/cD7sa3S.jpg)

Mack’s former “Smallville” co-star Michael Rosenbaum opened about the actress’ involvement with alleged sex cult and said the news was “shocking” and “surprising” to him, but he recalled her once mentioning an organization that he felt was a “little culty.”

Rosenbaum, 46, who played Lex Luther and acted alongside Mack for seven seasons of the superhero show, confessed that hearing about his former co-star made him realized he didn’t know the actress all that well.

“It’s like someone telling you that your brother murdered someone,” Rosenbaum said on the“This Past Weekend" podcast.

“You’re like, ‘No, he didn’t. I know my brother. He wouldn’t kill anybody.’ It’s just so bizarre. The whole story I think is yet to come out. I think it’s just shocking and surprising.”

Rosenbaum said he never imagined Mack being involved in a cult.

“I thought she would be married with kids. She was smart, and her family was into music and opera and stuff, and sort of upper class,” he said. “I don’t know what that means, but she had her stuff together. You just don’t ever really know someone."

Mack was arrested in April and faces charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit forced labor stemming from her time with NXIVM.

The 36-year-old actress joined the alleged sex cult in 2006 and rose in the organization’s ranks to become a so-called “slave master” who allegedly recruited sex slaves under the guise of a women’s self-help organization.

She worked alongside NXIVM founder Keith Raniere and other top members.

Judge Questions Allison Mack, Sex Cult Co-Defendants About Shady Trust Fund
NXIVM members are accused of using money from a third party to pay legal fees.
by Melissa Roberto





Allison Mack and her NXIVM sex cult co-defendants appeared in federal court on Thursday, where a judge questioned their motives for setting up a shady trust fund to pay their legal fees, RadarOnline.com can report.

Mack entered the courtroom wearing a gray turtleneck – something she’s likely not used to wearing while under house arrest in her parents’ California home – as eyewitnesses whispered in the courtroom that she looked “terrible.”

U.S. attorneys who filed a superseding indictment for racketeering against Mack, NXIVM founder Keith Raniere, as well as Lauren Salzman, Nancy Salzman, Kathy Russell and Clare Bronfman, got down to business.

They alerted the judge about a secret trust fund the defendants have been using to pay their legal fees – trusted by their very own co-defendant, Seagram’s heiress Bronfman.

The judge questioned Raniere’s attorney, Marc Agnifilo, who spoke on behalf of all defendants, about why they’d hide this information.

“Do you think it’s significant for the court to know who created [the trust]?” the judge asked.

“On June 12, I told your honor,” Agnifilo said.

“I told the government there was an irrevocable trust. We didn’t discuss the source.”

The judge said he wanted to know who, besides Bronfman, was funding the money, which is being used to pay off legal bills for Mack, Raniere, and the rest of the defendants.

Agnifilo explained that the trust was created before Bronfman was arrested and became a defendant in the case.

As Radar readers know, the government unsealed the superseding indictment against all six defendants on July 24.

Mack, Raniere and the four others face time in jail for charges of racketeering, forced labor conspiracy, sex trafficking, and other serious crimes.

U.S. attorneys on Thursday claimed that no matter what evidence is provided to the court by Agnifilo, they believe finding out who runs the trust and funds it is “appropriate.”

The judge agreed.

He claimed that without knowing the “full details” of the defendants’ financial dealings, it is assumed those behind the alleged secret trust are “inappropriately influencing the work of the trial counsel.”

The defendants are expected back in court on January 9.

Considering all of those S&M themed movies under Tarantino's belt, I am 100% certain he could explain it to you.

St. Paul federal jury convicts all 5 on trial in Thai sex trafficking case
by Stephen Montemayor

Uncle Bill

A federal jury in St. Paul has convicted all five people charged with conspiring to traffic hundreds of Thai women for sex, siding with prosecutors who alleged during a six-week trial that the defendants and nearly three dozen other co-conspirators ran a lucrative business that spanned more than a decade and crossed international borders.

Jurors returned guilty verdicts on all counts Wednesday afternoon, barely a day after receiving the case following six weeks of trial. Two waves of defendants from across the country were charged in the case, beginning in October 2016 and again in May 2017.

All but five pleaded guilty to avoid trial. Prosecutors described the case as “modern-day sex slavery” and argued that the defendants forced Thai women to work long hours having sex with multiple men daily to pay off “bondage debts” owed to traffickers for help coming to the United States. Prosecutors said victims, some of whom testified during the trial, were misled as to how much they truly owed and were threatened if they tried to leave the business.

After Wednesday's verdicts, U.S. Attorney for Minnesota Erica MacDonald called the sex trafficking operation one of largest, most sophisticated transnational sex rings ever dismantled.

Prosecutors said victims, some of whom testified during the trial, were misled as to how much they truly owed and were threatened if they tried to leave the business.


Flanked by federal prosecutors, agents and a victims’ advocate, U.S. Attorney Erica MacDonald described the case as one of the largest trafficking networks ever dismantled at the federal level.

“Sex trafficking is an industry that is built on supply and demand, and this organization fed that industry,” MacDonald said Wednesday. “It exploited, it abused, enslaved and sold women in response to the high demand for commercial sex that exists not only in the United States but here in Minnesota.”

Convicted on Wednesday was Michael Morris, aka “Uncle Bill,” 65, of Seal Beach, Calif.; Pawinee Unpradit, aka Fon, 46, of Dallas; Saowapha Thinram, aka Nancy or Kung, 44, of Hutto, Texas; Thoucharin Ruttanamongkongul, aka Noiy, 35, of Chicago; and Waralee Wanless, aka Wan, 39, of Colony, Texas.

All five were found guilty of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, conspiracy to use transportation for prostitution, conspiracy to launder money and conspiracy to use a “communication facility” — such as phone or internet — to promote prostitution. Morris also was convicted of an additional charge of sex trafficking by “use of force, threats of force, fraud and coercion.”

Senior U.S. District Judge Donovan Frank later thanked those in the courtroom — both government and defense — for listening to the verdicts dispassionately, saying “I know there are very strong feelings” after such a long trial.

According to prosecutors, women were made to have sex on a “near-constant basis” to pay off debts exceeding $40,000 to $60,000. Many were shuttled between apartments or spas in U.S. cities like Minneapolis, Chicago and Los Angeles, their services advertised on online forums where sex buyers would later comment and rate their performance. Less than two-thirds of what the women earned went toward their debts while the rest went to their “house bosses” who used some of the money to cover expenses associated with the business.

MacDonald said authorities seized $1.5 million and won another $15 million in court judgments in the case. The case began when a federal prosecutor and a Homeland Security Investigations agent followed a 2014 tip that a victim was being flown into Minnesota and traced her to the apartment where she was sold for sex.

Robert Sicoli, Morris’ attorney, said Wednesday that he was “somewhat shocked, especially by the speed of the verdict” given the trial’s length and amount of evidence to consider.

Paul Engh, an attorney for Thinram, predicted that all five defendants will appeal the verdicts.

“Deeply disappointed,” Engh said. “We thought we had a great shot at it. Everyone will appeal.”

Sicoli said “95 percent” of the government’s case turned on whether women were coerced into having sex for money. Defense attorneys for all five insisted that the women were willful participants in selling themselves for sex, pointing to examples of women sending earnings back home to help family and staying in the business well after paying down their debts.

Two defendants — Unpradit and Thinram — began as victims of the organization. Unpradit later went on to help funnel women to work at one of several houses of prostitution Morris operated in California. Thinram later opened her own business in Austin, Texas, after paying off her bondage debt. Her husband, who pleaded guilty, helped her run the house.

Panida Rzonca, directing attorney for the Thai Community Development Center in Los Angeles, said Wednesday that her organization is helping to represent about 20 victims linked to the case and made a plea for others to come forward, adding, “We can still help them; this is not the end.”

"There are hundreds if not thousands of victims of this organization — some of those women we know, some of those brave women testified at trial, some of those women we know their real names but we don’t know where they are. Some of them we know have nicknames, some of them we have pictures. … We’re going to continue looking for them.” said Assistant U.S. Attorney Melinda Williams, one of two federal prosecutors who tried the case.

Meanwhile on Earth 2, Lex Luthor Faces Felony Charges For Alleged Sexual Assault
by Francesca Paris

(https://i.imgur.com/VIgCQIr.jpg)

A Massachusetts district court has issued a criminal complaint against actor Kevin Spacey for allegedly sexually assaulting an 18-year-old son.

His arraignment is scheduled for January 7th 2019, according to a statement released Monday by Nantucket District Attorney Michael O'Keefe.
 
Clerk Magistrate Brian Kearney issued the complaint for "indecent assault and battery," a felony offense, following a public show cause hearing on Thursday.

The criminal charges stem from former Boston news anchor Heather Unruh's accusation last year that Spacey had assaulted her son.

At a 2017 press conference, Unruh said that Spacey forced himself on her teenage son in July 2016, at The Club Car restaurant on Nantucket island.

Tennessee Governor grants full clemency to Cyntoia Brown, sets Aug. 7 release from prison
by Adam Tamburin and Anita Wadhwani

(https://i.imgur.com/WsQJNc1.jpg)

Gov. Bill Haslam ordered an early release for Cyntoia Brown, a Tennessee woman and alleged sex trafficking victim serving a life sentence in prison for killing a man when she was 16.

Haslam granted Brown a full commutation to parole on Monday. Brown will be eligible for release Aug. 7 on time served and will stay on parole for 10 years.

“Cyntoia Brown committed, by her own admission, a horrific crime at the age of 16," Haslam said in a statement.

"Yet, imposing a life sentence on a juvenile that would require her to serve at least 51 years before even being eligible for parole consideration is too harsh, especially in light of the extraordinary steps Ms. Brown has taken to rebuild her life.

"Transformation should be accompanied by hope.  So, I am commuting Ms. Brown’s sentence, subject to certain conditions.”

Brown will be required to participate in regular counseling sessions and to perform at least 50 hours of community service, including working with at-risk youth. She also will be required to get a job.

In a statement released by her lawyers, Brown thanked  Haslam "for your act of mercy in giving me a second chance. I will  do everything I can to justify your faith in me."

"With God's help, I am committed to live the rest of my life helping others, especially young people. My hope is to help other young girls avoid ending up where I have been."

The governor's long-awaited decision, handed down during his last days in office, brought a dramatic conclusion to Brown's plea for mercy, which burst onto the national stage as celebrities and criminal justice reform advocates discovered her case.

In his commutation, the governor called Brown's case one that "appears to me to be a proper one for the exercise of executive clemency."

"Over her more than fourteen years of incarceration, Ms. Brown has demonstrated extraordinary growth and rehabilitation," the commutation said.

It was a remarkable victory for Brown after years of legal setbacks.

Brown said she was forced into prostitution and was scared for her life when she shot 43-year-old Johnny Allen in the back of the head while they were in bed together.

Allen, a local real estate agent, had picked her up at an East Nashville Sonic restaurant and taken her to his home.

Brown, now 30, was tried as an adult and convicted of first-degree murder in 2006. She was given a life sentence. Had Haslam declined to intervene, Brown would not have been eligible for parole until she was 69.

The state parole board, which considered Brown's case in 2018, gave the governor a split recommendation, with some recommending early release and some recommending she stay in prison.

Lawyers for Brown applauded the governor's decision.

"This is truly a joyful moment — for Cyntoia and for all of us who have worked to help her," the statement from Charles Bone and J.Houston Gordon, Brown's lead attorneys.

"The governor's decision is proof that our justice system works and it marks the beginning" of a new chapter for Cyntoia.

In recent years, celebrities have highlighted her case, fueling intense interest and a renewed legal fight to get her out of prison.

Activists, lawmakers and celebrities, including Rihanna and Kim Kardashian West, have cited Brown's case as an illustration of a broken justice system. Brown was a victim herself, they said, and didn't deserve her punishment.

Her impending release sets the stage for her to join their ranks.

During her time in prison, Brown completed her GED and got a college degree from Lipscomb University. Her allies say she hopes to apply her education by supporting social justice issues through her own nonprofit.

Lex Luthor Ordered To Stay Away From Accuser
by Bethonie Butler

(https://i.imgur.com/VIgCQIr.jpg)

Kevin Spacey appeared Monday in a Massachusetts court, where attorneys entered a not-guilty plea on behalf of the 59-year-old actor, who was arraigned on a felony charge of indecent assault and battery.
Spacey is accused of groping an 18-year-old man at a Nantucket bar in 2016.

The actor wore a gray suit, floral shirt and polka-dot tie and stood expressionless next to his attorney, Alan Jackson, for most of the hearing, during which Judge Thomas S. Barrett ordered Spacey to have no contact with his alleged victim, at the request of the prosecution.

Barrett set the next pretrial hearing for March 4 at 11 a.m. and agreed that Spacey would not have to appear in court but would need to be available by phone.
(https://i.imgur.com/0RaMPf8.png)(https://i.imgur.com/rde50fS.gif)"Huh?"

The judge also agreed to a motion by Spacey’s attorneys to preserve cellphone and cloud data from the victim for six months after the alleged assault, but noted that this requirement could be modified throughout the course of the case.

33 arrested for sex trafficking in Super Bowl sting
by Lauren Padgett

(https://i.imgur.com/5xtFq35.jpg)

With Super Bowl LIII just days away, federal officials have been keeping a fixed eye on concerns of sex trafficking in the metro Atlanta area.

On Wednesday, authorities with Homeland Security said that 33 people have been arrested for sex trafficking during the last four days of active investigation in the Atlanta area. Four people have been recovered to date.

“Our operations are continuing so I won’t go specifically into what we’re doing because we plan to run those operations throughout the rest of the Super Bowl,” said Nick Annan, Atlanta Special Agent in Charge for Homeland Security Investigations.

“We’ve been up and running for the last four days of our operations, but we plan to continue what we’re doing.”

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen said that 1,600 victims were rescued from sex trafficking last year and over 300 people were arrested.

“As you know, unfortunately some of these are networks, so part of what HSI does is work with other federal partners to take down the entire transnational organization,” Nielsen said.

“We do have a victim focus and make sure we provide services.”

Atlanta is considered one of the biggest hubs of sex trafficking nationwide. And the illegal business is prominent during major sporting events, according to research.

Right now, the search is on to find missing teenage girls from Atlanta. Some believe they could possibly be sex trafficking victims or vulnerable to become victims. Their families are fearing for their safety.

The group S.O.A.P. (Save Our Adolescents from Prostitution) is taking the initiative to find the girls to get them home before such a disturbing fate materializes for them.

S.O.A.P spent the weekend passing out flyers with the names and photos of the sixteen girls.
They are all young women in their teens - and they're all missing in metro Atlanta.

According to S.O.A.P, two girls on the flyer have been identified as having been to hotels recently in the city.
 
"Hotel staff were able to identify two of the girls and said they had seen them recently," a S.O.A.P. spokesperson told 11Alive.

"Now they will be able to alert authorities the next time they see them."

S.O.A.P says identifying them is a huge first step in rescuing them. Now they’re hoping the hotels will notify them.

S.O.A.P. National holds outreach programs across the United States and provides resources to high-risk areas and motels.

The organization handed out bars of soap to hotels in Atlanta, labeled with resources for sex trafficking victims.

And along with the list of teens on the poster is a number to call - the Human Trafficking Hotline Number - which is 1-888-3737-888 or, alternatively, 1-800-THE-LOST.

puppetine’s Labor Secretary Once Helped a serial Child Rapist Hide His Crimes
by Eric Levitz

(https://i.imgur.com/oN78q87.jpg)

Imagine you are a U.S. Attorney, spearheading the prosecution of an alleged serial sexual abuser of children.

You have statements from dozens of self-identified victims — teenage girls who do not know each other, and yet tell virtually identical stories (even providing corroborating descriptions of the suspect’s genitalia).

The victims unanimously say that the suspect operated a kind of “sex pyramid scheme,” in which he would:

1) Offer barely pubescent girls a lot of money to come to his house and give him a “massage.”

2) Coerce them into performing sex acts during and after the massages.

3) Offer those who liked the money — but not the molestation — more pay in exchange for luring other barely pubescent girls to his home.

Your team has uncovered phone records, flight logs, and written messages that corroborate the alleged victims’ claims.

Someone who worked in the suspect’s home has given you a sworn statement, confirming that “young girls” were constantly entering and leaving the house — and that, on one occasion, he “accidentally stumbled on a high school girl” sleeping naked in the suspect’s spa.

A search of the suspect’s property turned up naked photos of underage girls, written instructions for delivering flowers to a local high school, a dresser drawer full of sex toys, and loose dangling wires all over the property — the suspect having, apparently, removed all of his computer hard drives, surveillance cameras, and videos from the house shortly before your team arrived.

The house perfectly matches the alleged victims (uniform) descriptions.


Meanwhile, investigators have begun to uncover evidence that the suspect was involved in bringing 13-year-old girls from Brazil and Ecuador to the United States to work as prostitutes at his sex parties.
 
As that investigation is moving forward, the suspect’s attorneys offer you a deal: The suspect will plead guilty to two state-level prostitution charges, in exchange for:

• Immunity from all related federal criminal charges — not only for himself, but also for “any potential co-conspirators’’ who might have been involved in those alleged federal crimes.

This provision would effectively forbid the FBI from looking any further into the evidence of international sex trafficking, and, essentially, make it retroactively legal for anyone to have conspired with the suspect to rape any of the alleged victims.


• A 13-month sentence, to be served in a private wing of a county jail – except for the six days a week when the suspect works.

On those days, he will be allowed to commute to his private office, and “work” for 12 hours.

• A commitment that this agreement will be kept secret from the self-identified victims, so that they do not have the opportunity to protest the arrangement in court (even though keeping a plea agreement secret from victims is an ostensible violation of federal law).

Would you accept this plea agreement?

If you are Donald Trump’s Labor secretary, then the answer is yes.

All the facts described above are not actually from a bizarre hypothetical, but rather, from the actual prosecution of billionaire hedge-fund manager Jeffrey Epstein, as detailed by a bombshell investigation from the Miami Herald.

In 2008, then–U.S. Attorney Alexander Acosta agreed to derail an active FBI investigation into a sex-trafficking ring — and let a man who was transparently guilty of molesting and/or raping dozens of underage girls serve a 13-month sentence (the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office then approved his 12-hour-a-day, six-days-a-week work-release arrangement).

Acosta would later attribute the leniency of the agreement to, in part, harassment from Epstein’s high-powered legal team — which, according to the Herald, hired private investigators to dig up dirt on the billionaire’s victims, on the police officers investigating Epstein’s crimes, and on federal prosecutors.

But emails and documents obtained by the Herald suggest that the relationship between federal prosecutors and Epstein’s team was often more collaborative than adversarial:

It’s clear, from emails and other records, that prosecutors spent a lot of time figuring out a way to settle the case with the least amount of scandal.

Instead of charging Epstein with a sex offense, prosecutors considered witness tampering and obstruction charges, and misdemeanors that would allow Epstein to secretly plead guilty in Miami, instead of in Palm Beach County, where most of the victims lived, thereby limiting media exposure and making it less likely for victims to appear at the sentencing.

The email chain shows that prosecutors sometimes communicated with the defense team using private emails, and that their correspondence referenced discussions that they wanted to have by phone or in person, so that there would be no paper trail.

“It’s highly unusual and raises suspicions of something unethical happening when you see emails that say ‘call me, I don’t want to put this in writing.’

There’s no reason to worry about putting something in writing if there’s nothing improper or unethical in the case,’’ said former federal prosecutor Francey Hakes, who worked in the Justice Department’s crimes against children unit.

Conspiracy theorists often fantasize about nefarious, elite cabals that sexually abuse and traffic children with impunity, because their secret, private power supersedes that of all national governments.

It is hard to examine the facts of the Epstein case and not wonder if those folks in the tin-foil hats aren’t onto something.

Epstein had no shortage of powerful friends, including Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Prince Andrew, and Alan Dershowitz — all of whom, at various points, frequented planes and properties that Epstein allegedly used for sexually abusing girls, sometimes with other men.

At least some of Epstein’s powerful friends appear to have been aware of his crimes. For example, the current president of the United States told New York Magazine in 2002,

“I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”

One of Epstein’s alleged victims, Virginia Giuffre, has claimed in court papers that she was recruited into the billionaire’s child sex ring when she was 15 — and working as a towel girl at Mar-a-Lago.

She also claims that Dershowitz and Prince Andrew participated in her sexual abuse.

The star attorney and British royal have vigorously denied those allegations.

Still, the incomprehensible leniency of Epstein’s plea deal — and the extraordinary provision immunizing any unnamed co-conspirators who participated in his trafficking ring from federal charges — both invite the dark suspicion that federal prosecutors felt compelled to protect an individual, or individuals, who were even more powerful than Epstein.

The Herald floats an alternative explanation for the prosecutors’ behavior — but it’s less than satisfying:

The Herald learned that, as part of the plea deal, Epstein provided what the government called “valuable consideration” for unspecified information he supplied to federal investigators.

While the documents obtained by the Herald don’t detail what the information was, Epstein’s sex crime case happened just as the country’s subprime mortgage market collapsed, ushering in the 2008 global financial crisis.

Records show that Epstein was a key federal witness in the criminal prosecution of two prominent executives with Bear Stearns, the global investment brokerage that failed in 2008, who were accused of corporate securities fraud.

Epstein was one of the largest investors in the hedge fund managed by the executives, who were later acquitted.

It is not known what role, if any, the case played in Epstein’s plea negotiations.

Generally speaking, American prosecutors do not take corporate securities fraud more seriously than serial child molestation and sex trafficking.

But whatever the motivation behind Acosta’s decision, his acceptance of Epstein’s plea agreement surely disqualifies him from leading a federal agency responsible for combating sex trafficking.

Anyhow, this summary only scratches the surface of the Herald’s incredible investigation, which is worth reading in full.

You should also check out New York Magazine’s contemporary reporting on the investigation into Epstein.

Although, be advised:

Reading about Jeffrey Epstein for longer than 45 minutes may lead one to conclude that 4-chan posts about “Pizzagate” paint a more accurate picture of the American ruling class than, say, all those uplifting speeches at John McCain’s funeral.

Allison Mack: Smallville Star Ordered Back To Court Over NXIVM Defense Fund
by Noah Villaverde

(https://i.imgur.com/QnzIjWf.jpg)

Federal court judge Nicholas Garaufis has ordered the six indicted members of the sex cult NXIVM to appear back in court in an upcoming trial. This includes former Smallville actress Allison Mack.

The Smallville star, who portrayed Chloe Sullivan as a series regular for the entire 10 season run is due to make a court appearance on Wednesday.

Allison Mack, along with NXIVM cult leader Keith Raniere continue to face legal issues regarding sex trafficking as a result of allegedly running a master-slave sex ring.

The legal battle with the Smallville actress and her fellow NXIVM Raniere, Seagram’s liquor heiress Clare Bronfman, Lauren Salzman, Nancy Salzman, and Kathy Russell has raged one for over a year and according to a recent report from last week, the former cult members are displeased with each other.

Prosecutors involved with the trial have claimed that the NXIVM defense fund that was set up by Bronfman could be used as a means to coerce others involved.

Susan Necheles, who serves as Bronfman’s attorney claims that the fund’s structure deems coercion impossible.

According to Judge Garaufis, about 25 percent of the undisclosed amount of money in the fund remains, and will likely run out before the trial.

The Salzman duo, who is facing charges in racketeering and Russell, who is facing identity theft charges will appear in court on Thursday and Friday, with opening statements set for April 29.

This new update is just one of many that have appeared during the bizarre trial, including a recent attempt to use Scientology as an example for why some of the issues cited with NXIVM during the trail should be considered unwarranted.

Given how long this trial has gone on for, that isn’t exactly a surprise either but it definitely gives fans an intriguing peek behind the curtain for what’s going on behind-the-scenes of the trial.

As the trial with Smallville‘s Allison Mack continues, there doesn’t seem to be any signs of it slowing down anytime soon.

Smallville’s Allison Mack May Be Negotiating Plea to ‘Cruel and Punitive’ Role in Sex Trafficking Case

by Jeff Truesdell

(https://i.imgur.com/uYMvNOe.jpg)

Three defendants accused of crimes from sex trafficking to conspiracy as part of a controversial New York-based self-help group are in “active plea negotiations” as their scheduled trial next month draws near, according to prosecutors.

This revelation came out in court on Monday as a fourth defendant, Nxivm co-founder Keith Raniere, entered a not guilty plea to newly filed child pornography charges related to the case, according to the AlbanyTimes Union, CBS News and the Associated Press.

Among those charged is actress Allison Mack, who was accused last April of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and forced labor conspiracy through her involvement with Nxivm and its sub-group DOS, which prosecutors have described as an all-female secret society of “masters” and “slaves” in which women allegedly were forced to be sexually subservient to Raniere.

(https://i.imgur.com/ypKPsk1.gif)(https://i.imgur.com/4cCYmGZ.gif)

“These slaves said Mack was incredibly intimidating, cruel and punitive,” a source close to two former DOS members told The Hollywood Reporter in a cover story published last May.

Raniere earlier pleaded not guilty to all other charges against him in the case.

A fifth defendant, the Seagram liquor fortune heiress Clare Bronfman, likely will be the only one besides Raniere to go to trial, Bronfman’s attorney Mark Geragos said in court Monday, reports CBS News.

That would leave Mack, along with former Nxvim bookkeeper Kathy Russell and Lauren Salzman, the daughter of Raniere’s second-in-command Nancy Salzman, as the three remaining defendants with whom prosecutors are in “active plea negotiations,” according to the statement in court Monday by Assistant U.S. Attorney Moira Penza, reports the Associated Press.

The prosecutor’s office declined PEOPLE’s request to formally identify those with whom they were negotiating.

Along with Mack, Russell and Lauren Salzman also have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.

Nancy Salzman, who co-founded Nxvim with Raniere, pleaded guilty Wednesday to racketeering conspiracy in the case, insisting to a judge, despite her plea, “I still believe some of what we did was good,” reports the Times Union.

It was the first conviction in the case that has drawn the attention of federal investigators.

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

Oxenberg first opened up to PEOPLE in 2017 about how she believed India had been “brainwashed” by Nxivm.

Last month a federal judge denied a third request for bail from Raniere, meaning he will remain behind bars until at least April 29 — the scheduled start of his trial on sex trafficking and forced labor charges.

The judge’s decision to reject the motion for $1 million bail argues that Raniere remains a flight risk, according to records obtained by PEOPLE.

The order refers to Raniere’s decision to travel to Mexico in the fall of 2017, upon learning investigators were closing in on Nxivm to arrest some of its senior members.

Nxivm, which suspended operations in 2018, has been described by at least one former member as a “cult.”

Mack, one of the group’s most prominent members, is best known for her years-long role as Chloe Sullivan on The WB’s Smallville.

She is facing a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison if convicted on all charges.

Raniere, who was arrested in March 2018, faces the same charges plus wire fraud and racketeering.

If convicted, he could be sentenced to life in prison.

Federal investigators have accused Mack of recruiting women into the Nxivm sub-group that was purported to be a female mentorship group to address their weaknesses but was, allegedly, a group created by Raniere that took advantage of women sexually.

“The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants’ benefit,” Richard P. Donoghue, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, alleged in a statement issued at the time of Mack’s arrest, referring to both Mack and Raniere.

Bronfman was charged last July with racketeering conspiracy in connection to her involvement with the group.

She has pleaded not guilty and was released on a $100 million bond, according to the Associated Press.

Smallville actress Allison Mack has pleaded guilty to charges related to her involvement with a controversial self-help group described as having a secret society of “masters” and sexually subservient “slaves” within it, PEOPLE confirms.

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of New York tells PEOPLE that Mack was scheduled to appear in court at 11:30 a.m. to plead guilty.

The spokesman says she is pleading guilty to racketeering conspiracy and racketeering.

Prosecutors have accused her of recruiting sex slaves for Keith Raniere, who co-founded the controversial self-help group Nxivm and its subgroup, DOS, described as an all-female secret society in which women allegedly were forced to be sexually subservient to Raniere.

On Monday, Mack, 36, appeared in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, where jury selection in her trial was set to begin.

Best known for her years-long role as a young Superman’s friend, Chloe Sullivan, on The WB’s Smallville, Mack was charged last spring with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor conspiracy.
 
One of the group’s most prominent members, Mack faced a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison if convicted on all charges.

“Alison Mack’s life is in ruins and I can’t help but feel sadness for her. At the same time, she had to be stopped. What she participated in was dangerous and criminal,”

says actress Catherine Oxenberg, whose daughter India Oxenberg was also famously involved with Nxivm, in a statement to PEOPLE.

Last month a judge denied a request by Mack’s lawyer to delay her trial so he could have more time to negotiate a plea deal for his high-profile client, local station CBS New York reports.

The actress was among six people accused of sex trafficking, forced labor, racketeering, wire fraud and other charges for their roles in Nxivm, which operated out of Albany but suspended operations last spring.

It has been described by at least one former member as a “cult.”

Federal investigators have accused Mack of recruiting women into DOS, which was purported to be a female mentorship group to address members’ weaknesses but was, allegedly, a group created by Raniere that took advantage of women sexually.

“The victims were then exploited, both sexually and for their labor, to the defendants’ benefit,” Richard P. Donoghue, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, alleged in a statement issued at the time of Mack’s arrest, referring to both Mack and Raniere.
