NXIVM Leader Keith Raniere Sentenced to 120 Years in Prison

ET can confirm that NXIVM founder Keith Raniere was sentenced to 120 years in prison on Tuesday after first being convicted in 2019 on seven charges, including conspiracy, racketeering and sex trafficking. In 2017, the self-help organization he created was exposed as a Ponzi scheme and cult that forced many of its female recruits into sexual slavery, leading to his arrest as well as charges brought against other high-ranking members, including co-founder Nancy Salzman, Seagram’s heiress Clare Bronfman and Smallville actress Allison Mack.
