Allison Mack asks judge to let her work, volunteer, go to school and church; motion likely to be granted

Allison Mack has a way to go and the journey is long.

Allison Mack’s attorneys are requesting a modification of her bail conditions to allow her to go to leave her parent’s home to go to work, school and church.

On August 14, 2018, two of her attorneys, William F. McGovern and Sean S. Buckley, asked Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis to amend Allison’s home detention rules to permit Mack to leave her residence to get a job, go to church once per week, and go to school.

Mack was arrested on April 20, 2018 at her Brooklyn residence by FBI agents.  Three days after her arrest, Mack was released on a $5 million bond secured by real property with an estimated market value of $1,730,000, including her parents’ residence in Los Alamitos California, and a lien on Mack’s retirement account valued at $585,000. The bond was co-signed by her parents.

The original Bail Order included:

– Home detention at her parents’ residence, where she is restricted to home at all times, except for attorney visits, court appearances, and medical treatment;
– GPS location [ankle] monitoring;
– Prohibition on contact—outside the presence of her attorneys—with her co-defendants, alleged co-conspirators, or any individual currently or formerly employed by or associated with Nxivm or any affiliated entity;
– A prohibition on computer and Internet access, with the exception of a single, Internet-capable device, monitored by Pretrial Services to communicate with Pretrial Services, defense counsel, a treatment [deprogrammer?] provider, or anyone else with prior approval from Pretrial Services and the government;
– Restrictions on phone usage permitting her only to make and receive calls from phone numbers agreed to by counsel for the defendant and the government on a cellular telephone approved and monitored by Pretrial Services;
– Pretrial supervision with random visits by a Pretrial Services Officer at defendant’s residence and/or place of work
– Surrender of all travel documents.

Mack has no previous criminal history.

Her attorneys wrote to the court, “While the instant charges have deprived her of pursuing her acting career, Ms. Mack nevertheless is interested in contributing to society. In that regard, Ms. Mack has contacted her Pretrial Services Officer to express her interest in obtaining employment, volunteering in her community, and attending classes and religious services while she waits for the opportunity to defend herself and clear her name at trial.”

Pretrial Services and the government consented to the proposal – which means it is likely to be granted.

Her attorneys added, “Prior to her arrest Ms. Mack willingly returned to, and remained in, the United States—and more specifically, the Eastern District of New York—despite the specter of potential criminal charges as outlined in the Complaint. Following her arrest and release on the conditions in the Bail Order, Ms. Mack has demonstrated for more than three months her ability to adhere to and abide by the rulings of this Court and the directives of Pretrial Services. Ms. Mack has complied with all of the conditions of the Bail Order, and has not incurred a single violation from her supervisory Pretrial Services Officers. Indeed, whenever she has a question about whether a particular activity would or would not be permissible under the Bail Order, Ms. Mack contacts Pretrial Services before taking any action.

“The proposed modifications will allow Ms. Mack to contribute to society and her own self betterment while she awaits the resolution of the criminal charges. They will permit her to explore employment opportunities, pursue further education, and attend religious services. These activities not only will allow Ms. Mack to use her time productively while awaiting trial, but will also assist with her reintegration into society if she is vindicated of the charges or even in the unlikely event that she is convicted after trial.”

Mack has agreed to provide Pretrial Services with her work schedule and copies of paychecks as proof of her employment. If she enrolls in a class or classes, she will provide Pretrial Services with proof of enrollment and her class schedule.


Working [but not for NXIVM], going to school [other than Vanguard University] and going to church [other than the Church of Keith Raniere] might help the hapless, brainwashed, alleged sex slaver, Allison Mack become deprogrammed and realize there is an exhilarating life outside of the constrictions of sex slaver cults and pyschopaths like keith Raniere giving you orders 24 hours per day.

Maybe there will be justice in the end for Allison Mack and healing also.

  • She ruins 100’s if not thousands of people’s lives and now she wants to be set free from home arrest!!!!

    Some Ex-NXIVM people would love to afford to go to school, but they don’t have the funds.

    Some Ex-NXIVM people would love to get a good job but when a Google search on them, what comes up is EX-Cult member.

    Ms. Mack has in so many ways destroyed people’s lives and now she wants a chance to deal with her boredom?

    There are ways to have religious trainings without leaving the house, just turn on God TV shows , or read books about “how to heal your soul”. If she allowed to go to church either one of her parents should have to escort her.

    Someone needs to call her a Vanbulance because poor little rich girl is sick of being stuck with her parents 7/24.

  • Anyone who knows how ankle bracelets work knows all this means is however many hours a day they allow her freedom leaves her wide open to do what she wants , see who she wants, call who she wants. No one will be watching her, she can use burner phones. Yea she’ll have to do a little paperwork for court. But they disable the bracelet for whatever time she’s allotted. It’s a bad idea right now unless the prosecutors plan on having her watched. If she hasent plead then she’ll be back in contact with her cohorts.,

  • Awww, troll-boys! They’re so cute, especially when they write under a variety of aliases and think we all believe they are new trolls. 😁
    I’m sure everyone (not just me) knows you are the same troll’s who have been posting here for months. I’m gonna guess there are 2 or 3 of you, and that you each write using several different names.

    What’s the point, troll-boys?

  • Or it will just make it easier for her to get back into contact with other NXIVM members.

    Who the heck would hire someone like her, anyhow ??

  • Gee thanks Frank. What a great subject. Shadowperv has over a third of the comments. I wonder why. Shadow must also be on house arrest. To bad the judge didn’t take his internet privileges away.

      • Most likely because your term of probation does not allow your aged mother to have internet service in her basement. I hope your PO finds out you are violating terms of your own probation

          • Hmmm fruit does not fall far from the tree. This guy maybe joining shadowperv on the sex offender list.


          • Hey, SOS Fool:
            I am a customer of Comcast as is half the country.
            Are half of all Americans perverts because they are customers of Comcast?
            Get A Brain!
            Get A Life!

          • Don’t waste your time responding to SOS, these Nxivm trolls are just blowing hot air, everything it posts is a joke

  • Now that the Bronfman cash spigot has been shut off and the trust Clare set up for Allison’s legal defense is gradually leaking away, Allison Mack is about to discover that transcontinental jet travel and hotel rooms in New York City are expensive.
    Allison Mack might even have to seek legitimate employment. Employment not involving sex trafficking or money laundering.

    Hence her desire/need to get out of house arrest.
    And her parents are probably sick of her tantrums.

    So let’s all have a pity party for Allison Mack.

    Meanwhile what about the Doctor, the female pediatrician, who leased the Clifton Park townhouse to Mack and her wife Nicki Clyne/
    The townhouse used by Allison and Nicki to brand and torture female slaves.
    That doctor had no knowledge that Allison Mack was turning that townhouse into a creamatorium/charnel house with the stench of burning flesh from Allison’s female slaves.
    And now that innocent doctor faces a forfeiture law suit because without her knowledge or consent Mack used that townhouse for sex trafficking.
    And the doctor has to hire legal representation without the help of Bronfman money.
    Does Allison Mack give a rat’s ass about that doctor?
    Hell No!

    Allison Mack only has pity for herself.
    She is the persecuted martyr.
    The Joan of Arc.
    Allison Mack is a selfish, entitled sociopathic Hollyweird lunatic who is a threat to herself and and the entire community.

    Let’s see Pee Onher defend Allison’s selfish behavior.

  • the bronfman “sisters” are fking MEN!!!!!!
    all nxvim are TRANNIES!!!
    MTF and FTM

    and this isnt a problem?


  • allison mack is a TRANNY
    wake up!!!!!
    they ALL ARE TRANS!!!!!!!

  • If Miss India Oxenberg gets to walk away scot free from any criminal charges despite being named “co-conspirator #2” and if she decides to leave the sex cult because her boyfriend told her to, then Allison Mack gets to leave house arrest in order to attend church and get a job. Only India gets to skate and act like she was never part of a cult? Just because Mack wants to try and better herself does not mean she isn’t going to be held accountable. To me, this is her defense attorney trying to help her win the judge over that she can change and not hurt people.

  • Volunteering in her community? The woman is clearly a danger to the community. As far as her acting goes no one in their right mind is going to hire her.

    • Depends upon what she intends to do. If she wants to care for elderly people, why not? The moment she tries to educate people, especially minors one should be sceptical.

  • If approved, this indicates Mack is cooperating with the Feds. If she is not cooperating, and the original conditions for her bail package are changed, the bail package was a joke.

    • You’re probably right, but if she is deprogrammed, she’s going to have one hell of a road to recovery. Its not uncommon for people to be driven to suicide after deprogramming because they can’t cope with the guilt that they feel over their actions.

      • yes, I know – deprogramming can be fatal – the entire psyche is affected and without spiritual and physical help and support, one is inclined to commit suicide. All who must face deprogramming at some point cling to and consider suicide as the favorable option – it’s the reason why being in a safe and even controlled environment, surrounded by professionals and people who are watching over the individual is necessary. Deprogramming cannot be done alone, or even at home, with family who simply don’t have the strength to see their loved one go through it. It’s an excruciating process.

  • Bahahahahahahaha, What church? Is she finally finding God.

    Wants to do good things for the community? Dude, why didn’t you think of that while recruiting gal pals for you pookie Keithy-poo

    I hear Orange is the New Black is hiring

  • Now it will be easier for Allison Mack to communicate with other NXIVM defendants and coordinate their defenses,

    July 25, 2018

    Apparently the restrictions imposed on this former A- list mostly television actress from a very hit, long running almost network show now defunct do not state she can’t have sex with people. Apparently she has been using sex to get others to reach out and do things for her that would be impossible in her current situation. The people she has sex with then meet with others our actress wishes to be contacted.
