The actress was arrested by the FBI, according to NYC law enforcement sources, and is due to appear in federal court in Brooklyn Friday. These new court documents do seem to support these claims, as Mack has now officially been indicted on charges for actions previously linked to CC-1, including her involvement as the direct Master of women identified only as Jane Does 1 and 2.
Mack played Chloe Sullivan on Smallville, which ran from 2001 to 2011. She was recruited to NXIVM by her fellow "Smallville" castmate Kristen Kreuk.
Mack and other DOS masters allegedly recruited DOS slaves by telling them they were joining an empowering women-only organization that would help them overcome their weaknesses.
The group was accused of depleting its member's resources, placing them on a 500 calorie a day diet and holding the malnourished women hostage. The new slaves then owe service not only to their own masters but also to masters above them in the DOS pyramid.

This has easily propelled him as one of the leaders in hip-hop, even crossing over to multiple audiences outside of rap as well. Canedy added that the decision was unanimous. "This is a big moment for hip-hop music and a big moment for the Pulitzers".
In March, Raniere was arrested outside Puerto Vallarta by Mexican federal police. Mack allegedly ordered the slaves to engage in sexual intercourse with Raniere.
Raniere is being held on trafficking charges, and his attorneys have said he's innocent.
NXIVM identifies itself as a self-help group, which was once known as "a multi-level marketing organization that offers personal and professional development seminars".
"The facts will show that Raniere didn't compel or pressure anyone to do anything and that everyone was acting in accordance with his or her free will at every instant", he said. The indictment, which is dated Thursday, says, for example, that Mack and Raniere, who also went by the name "Vanguard", allegedly conspired to coerce a woman into doing labor for them by making her believe that if she didn't, the victim would suffer "serious harm". He also said that Mack and her "Smallville" co-star, Kristin Kreuk, were used as "poster girls for normalizing the group". Enrollees in its Executive Success Programs paid handsomely for his advice.
Last year, the accusations took a new twist, with women who were part of a NXIVM subgroup coming forward to say that they had been physically branded with a surgical tool against their will.
