Will there be new high-profile defendants in NXIVM's sex trafficking case?
A status hearing for the infamous Hollywood cult was held on Thursday, February 28 in Brooklyn, New York court, where U.S. attorneys confirmed a second superseding indictment is in the works.
“We do intend to supersede,” U.S. attorney Moira Penza confirmed in the courtroom this morning.
Penza explained the superseding indictment is based off of an “additional piece of evidence” that has been seized. The attorney did not state whether or not this means additional defendants will be brought forward.
The indictment is to come in the “next several weeks,” according to the attorney.
News of the upcoming superseding indictment raised eyebrows in court. However, Penza said she does not believe it will come as much of a surprise to anyone.
In the courtroom, disgraced Smallville star Mack sat quietly, dressed in a black floral outfit with her hair pulled back in a bun.
Jailed Raniere looked freshened up following weeks of complaints to the government about Brooklyn MDC’s lack of heat and electricity. The NXIVM founder appeared to have a clean-shaven face. However, his skin still appeared extremely red along with his signature bushy head of hair.
Throughout the hearing, Raniere was spotted staring at his ex-girlfriend Toni Natalie, who was seated in the back of the courtroom.
The next NXIVM hearing has been scheduled for March 18 in Brooklyn Federal Court.
