Charges against alleged Allison Mack stalker dismissed

Allison Mack outside of court on December 6, 2018

The middle aged man who allegedly stalked Allison Mack outside her home had his charges dismissed on Friday. 

A judge dismissed the restraining order that Mack was initially granted against her alleged male stalker, Thomas Sekera, on Friday – has reported.

Mack accused Sekera, 53, of stalking her outside her parents’ California home where she lives subject to home detention as a condition of her $5 million bail.

Mack alleged that Sekera would wait around the outside of the property, peek in windows and even once came to the door to offer his services to help her in her criminal defense.

It is not known whether he offered himself up to be branded.

Mack’s request for a temporary restraining order was granted on November 20th. But that was done on an ex parte basis – meaning that Sekera was not there to defend himself against Mack’s allegations. 

On Friday, the court dismissed Mack’s claim without prejudice. She can seek another restraining order if she alleges Sekera comes around again.

In seeking not to press charges, Mack will avoid local court appearances in California. She appeared in Brooklyn on Thursday on her own sex trafficking and racketeering charges.

Mack faces decades in prison if she is convicted on all counts.

For the benefit of curious readers, Frank Report has positively confirmed that Shadow State 1958, a contributor to this website, is not Thomas Sekera. 

In dismissing the restraining order against Sekera, it is likely the judge made it clear to him that he cannot visit Mack at her home unless he’s invited there by Mack. 

And unless Sekera has enough money in the bank to sign up for at least one 16-day NXIVM/ESP intensive training course – or he has a skinny 15-year old daughter with long hair that he wouldn’t mind handing over to Mack and her Vanguard – that’s probably not going to happen.

    • [deleted] Mack never showed up in court. Shadow boy will be back at it now he thinks there are no consequences.

    • But “without prejudice.” I can’t help but wonder if things would have been more entertaining if it was dismissed “with prejudice.” And I think at this point, I’m not sure if it can be called a “Nxivm” lawsuit. Nxivm is dead. This was just a lawsuit from a disgraced TV actress who flushed her life down the toilet all for some guru with stupid haircut. And there are some who even argue that the branding, while painful and weird, wasn’t illegal in and of itself. I’m sure there were some who actually wanted it, but still… The only “cults” I’d be interested in are the “cult” TV shows. A cult that brands and and promotes anorexia is just nuts.

      What will the next lawsuit be? Yet another indictment? Pushing the trial yet to an even later date? I’m not one for “judge, jury, and executioner” policies, but trials are just another thing that we as taxpayers have to deal with.

      I stopped caring about the outcome a long time ago. Conviction, exoneration for any of those involved, I no longer care. I just want it to end.

      • Mack is NXIVM through and through, just ask Shadow. NXIVM has been seriously wounded, but there is evidence of it not disappearing completely. What made the cauterizing illegal is the blackmail, or what NXIVM euphemistically calls “collateral.” The outcome is critical in order to discourage others from doing similar things. Not caring about the outcome is being very short-sighted, the adults know this process takes time.

        • “Just ask Shadow”, lololol He is insaneeeeee amd probably also stalking AM, I would take anything coming out of his mouth with a giant grain of salt.

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.
