>> Actress Allison Mack, known for her role in the TV series Smallville, was arrested Friday and charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy. An indictment unsealed in federal court accuses Mack of recruiting women into a secret society led by the self-help guru Keith Raniere. Prosecutors say they women were then branded with Raniere's initials, put on restrictive diets, and forced to have sex with Raniere.
Mack pleaded not guilty to the charges and remains in custody. A second hearing is scheduled for Monday.
