Jane Doe 14, a DOS ‘Slave,’ Gives Testimony as a Victim of Clare Bronfman

At the sentencing hearing of Clare Webb Bronfman, where she was ultimately sentenced to 81 months in prison, nine women spoke as victims.

The first was Sarah Edmondson. Her remarks, made by video are published here in full. 

Sarah was followed by Ivy Nevares, who also appeared by video. Her remarks are published here in full.

After Ivy’s video, another video was played, of Jane Doe 14, who became a DOS slave. There is a lot unsaid in this statement, namely the bad experience she had in DOS and with Keith. Try to read between the lines.


I am very grateful to have the opportunity to be heard. I hope you understand that I would like to be referred to as Jane Doe, because even though she is being sentenced, I am still afraid of retaliation by Clare Bronfman and Keith Raniere.

I was recruited into DOS and groomed for Keith Raniere [for sex slavery]; and both my experience and what I know now from all the information that has become public, I believe Clare Bronfman played a role in that.

Throughout the ten years that I actively participated in NXIVM, Clare’s influence was a turn-in for me to believe that I was in an honorable and good place. She convinced me that the organization was an important humanitarian management, and I was convinced to believe in and fully commit to what I now know to have been a lie.

Wakaya Island. Clare owns 80% of this Fiji island.

Clare invited me personally to Wakaya Island in Fiji, telling me that it was Keith’s desire to have me participate in a training there, and that it was a big honor for me to receive such an invitation. She said that it was unusual for Keith to specifically ask for someone to be there, which I now know also to be a lie.

But this strategy played out over and over again.

She invited me a second time to Wakaya Island, but this time supposedly as a member of an exclusive private lifetime VIP Club of friends who shared common visions and values, but that was way beyond my financial ability because I had already spent most of my resources in what was supposed to be my personal growth. [Nxivm intensives]

Clare also persuaded me to economically sponsor different projects of Keith, to give video testimony or to take trainings to attend V-Week, which I did for nine years in a row. The last V-Week before Keith was arrested [2017], I paid for fully in advance, and when it was clear that things were falling apart [after the branding story came out on Frank Report] and I would not be attending, Clare firmly refused to give me a refund. She pretended to be my friend for a long time, when all along, I was just being manipulated and groomed for Keith.

Clare says she has nothing to do with any of that, but I don’t believe her. Why else would she have put so much time and effort into persuading me to do things for Keith and to be in places for Keith?

I thought Clare was my friend, and even though the toughest part by far was my DOS/Keith experience [she does not detail this, which is unfortunate, but it is clear that it was ugly and painful], it is devastating to find out that all those years of my life and all my money was spent serving a bogus and criminal organization.

Thank you for giving me this time to speak.

When I read these statements, I think about all the others who have yet to speak up. This Jane Doe was vague and yet made her painful betrayal evident. The restraint is pregnant.

Not often do you hear silence speaking as loudly as this.

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.
