Actress Allison Mack starts three-year prison sentence early in NXIVM scandal

Mack starts prison early

TV actress Allison Mack has started her prison sentence two weeks early.

The Smallville star was sentenced to three years behind bars for her role in recruiting women to sex cult NXIVM, and had been due to report to the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, on Sept. 29.

However, according to TMZ.com, Mack arrived at the facility on Monday to begin her sentence.

Mack helped prosecutors convict NXIVM's leader Keith Raniere by handing over audio and emails, and he was sentenced to 120 years in prison on charges of sex trafficking, racketeering, and forced labour conspiracy last October.

The screen star recently said she has experienced "overwhelming shame" and called her time as part of the NXIVM cult "the biggest mistake and greatest regret of my life."

"I am sorry to those of you that I brought into NXIVM," she said in a pre-sentencing statement. "I am sorry I ever exposed you to the nefarious and emotionally abusive schemes of a twisted man. I am sorry that I encouraged you to use your resources to participate in something that was ultimately so ugly."
