Prosecutors say Raniere, known by his followers as “Vanguard,” kept a ring of 15 to 20 women sex slaves branded with his initials.
Former members say that leaders within the movement were called “masters” and recruited other women to be their “slaves.”

In April, former “Smallville” actress, Allison Mack pleaded guilty to two charges of racketeering for her involvement in Nxivm.
