Bouchey Letter to Judge Peebles, NXIVM ‘should be considered criminal’

In 2011, Barbara Bouchey sent a letter to US Magistrate Judge David Peebles defending herself against a sanctions motion made by NXIVM. At the end of the lette Bouchey reveals the extent of the effort Raniere and his crew have made to harass her through litigation – something that collectively merits sanctions themselves.

In the letter, Bouchey writes, “The facts are that  I have acted responsibly, graciously  and dutifully  in complying fully to the barrage of legal abuse directed towards me collectively from their 6  prominent law firms resulting in  my being dragged  into, without any say or control, at least  10 litigations (6 filed against me) resulting in over 800 filings, containing over 16,000 pages filled with untruths and fabrications, from within 3 different states, before 8 Judges; thereby, forcing me into bankruptcy after costing me over $400,000 in fees trying to defend myself. I assure Your Honor that should all the facts be known about what NXIVM  has really done to me over the  last two years that it should  be considered criminal.  What I have been doing recently, though, is fighting back by bringing forth facts and evidence  in the hopes that this legal abuse is not allowed to continue, and that is my legal right to do so and not defiance. I hope someday the truth comes out, because their abuse of the legal system and the vendetta sought on individuals such as myself needs to stop.”

The problem Barbara is they have the money to buy justice and you don’t.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
