What Prison & For How Long? Likely Sentences For Nancy, Lauren and Allison Mack

As Frank Report readers are well aware, three of the defendants in the case of the U.S. v. Raniere Et Al – Nancy Salzman, Lauren Salzman, and Allison Mack – have already entered guilty pleas.

Nancy pleaded guilty to one count of Racketeering Conspiracy – and apparently did so without entering into any sort of “Cooperation Agreement”…

Lauren and Allison both pleaded guilty to one count of Racketeering Conspiracy and one count of Racketeering – and both entered into 10-page “Cooperation Agreements”.

So, what’s next for these three damsels-in-distress?

What kind of sentences are they likely to receive, where are likely to serve their prison time, and what kinds of issues will they need to deal with once they have completed their sentences?

Nancy Salzman is facing a grim future

RE: Nancy Salzman
Nancy got the first seat on the Plea Deal Bus back on March 13th – and, even though she has no “Cooperation Agreement” in place, she will likely get a better deal than Lauren or Allison.

To begin with, she only had to plead to one felony, rather than two like Lauren and Allison.

She also admitted to two predicate acts:
(1) that she obtained passwords and user names to monitor some of NXIVM’s “enemies” (The names of those enemies have not yet been revealed); and

(2) that she had others destroy videotapes memorializing the teachings of Keith Raniere (These videotapes had been subpoenaed in the Rick Ross case).

Per the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, Nancy will likely be facing 33-41 months in federal prison. As is also true for Lauren and Allison, the actual amount of time that Nancy will serve will be solely determined by Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis.

Assuming that she provides complete and truthful testimony against whatever remaining defendants choose to go to trial – and, at this point, that looks like Raniere for sure and maybe Clare Bronfman – I think Nancy will likely get a sentence of 24-30 months (Assuming she does not lose any of the “good time credit” she’ll earn while she’s incarcerated, Nancy will be around 67 years old when she gets out).

And she’ll likely be assigned to the federal women’s prison in Danbury, CT – which, incidentally, is the inspiration for the Orange Is The New Black TV series.


Lauren Salzman will be sentenced on September 11, 2019 – after the full extent of her cooperation with the feds is known.

RE: Lauren Salzman
Lauren got the second seat on the Plea Deal Bus on March 25th when she entered into a plea deal that was originally filed “under seal”.

But, several days later, a redacted version of the transcript from her plea hearing was released at the request of the prosecution.

Like her mother, Lauren pleaded guilty to one count of Racketeering Conspiracy – which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years. In addition, however, she also pleaded guilty to one count of Racketeering – which also carries a maximum sentence of 20 years.

She also admitted to three predicate acts:
(1) that she participated in the document servitude of Jane Doe 4 – which led to that woman being confined to a room for almost two years;

(2) that she compelled and induced Jane Doe 6 and Jane Doe 10 to turn over “collateral” to her by threatening to release other “collateral” that they had previously provided at the time they became part of DOS (This “collateral”
included, but was not limited to, “sexually explicit photographs and videos, credit card authorizations, and rights to assets”); and

(3) that she obtained the labor and services of Jane Doe 6 and Jane Doe 11 by causing them to “believe that if they did not perform such labor and services, they would suffer serious harm”.

Because she entered into a “Cooperation Agreement”, it is quite possible that the prosecution has already agreed to recommend a certain sentencing range for Lauren.

But, in the end, it will Judge Garaufis who will be the sole decision-maker when it comes to how much time she’ll spend in federal prison.

Assuming she provides complete and truthful testimony against any remaining defendants that go to trial, I think Lauren will likely get a sentence of 48-60 months (If she does not lose any of the “good time credit” she’ll earn while she’s incarcerated, Lauren will be around 47 years old when she gets out).

And she’ll likely serve her time in the same prison where her mother will be residing.


Allison Mack heads to court to plead guilty

RE: Allison Mack
Allison Mack got the third seat on the Plea Deal Bus when she entered into a plea deal on April 8th (Her deal also included a “Cooperation Agreement” that may have some impact on her sentence).

Just like Lauren, Allison also pleaded guilty to one count of Racketeering Conspiracy and one count of Racketeering.

And she also admitted to two predicate acts:
(1) that she compelled and induced Jane Doe 5 and Jane Doe 8 to turn over “collateral” to her by threatening to release other “collateral” that they had previously provided at the time they became part of DOS (This “collateral”
included, but was not limited to, “nude photos and other things of value”); and

(2) that she obtained the labor and services of Jane Done 5 and Jane Doe 8 “under threat of serious harm, including (the) release of their collateral”.

Even though Allison entered into some sort of “Cooperation Agreement”, it will still be solely up to Judge Garaufis as to how much time she spends in federal prison.

Assuming she provides complete and truthful testimony against any remaining defendants that go to trial, I think Allison will also get a sentence of 48-60 months (If she does not lose any of the “good time credit” she’ll earn while she’s incarcerated, Allison will be around 40 years old when she gets out).

If Allison chooses to maintain California as her home state, she will likely end up serving her time in the federal women’s prison in Dublin, CA.


In addition to their respective prison sentences, Nancy, Lauren, and Allison will also have several other penalties imposed on them.

These will include, at a minimum, the following:
• Up to 36 months of “supervised release” after they have fully completed their sentence (Note: This means after prison, Halfway House and/or home confinement).

• A fine of up to $250,000 or twice the gross profits of the NXIVM criminal enterprise, whichever is greater;

• Restitution in the amount of each victim’s losses as determined by Judge Garaufis (He will also decide who is a “victim”);

• A $100 special assessment for each count they’ve pleaded guilty to; and

• Criminal forfeiture (This is spelled out in the “Cooperation Agreements” that Lauren and Allison entered into).



But wait, there’s more…

Many people are unaware of the fact that all felons in the U.S. also have additional penalties imposed on them as a matter of federal and/or state law.

Some of these additional penalties are as follows:
• Loss of voting rights (This varies by state but most states now restore voting rights upon the completion of the original sentence);

• Loss of the right to possess any firearm (Some states also restrict the possession of any electronic defense device);

• Loss of the right to serve on a jury;

• Loss of the right to be employed – or licensed – in certain professions (The specific restrictions vary by state but typically include the following: architects, attorneys, barbers, chiropractors, dentists, doctors, hairdressers, massage therapists, nurses, physical therapist, security officers, social workers, taxicab drivers, etc.);

• Loss of eligibility for certain public benefits;

• Restrictions on adopting or becoming a foster parent; and

• Loss of the right to travel to certain countries (e.g., Australia and Canada).

  • I think these sentences would be just and fair. Just from poking around online, my guess was for slightly shorter terms, but I’m conflicted between a desire to see these people crucified and my better angel; it must be very difficult for a judge, passing sentence and determining people’s futures. I suspect even a couple of years in prison would be devastating to most people, a real life wrecker.

    I confess I’m awaiting with morbid curiosity the course of this trial. As details emerge– and if what I’ve read in the press is even approximately true, they are horrid details– I wonder what effect these facts will have on these three individuals’ sentences. They’ve confessed to Racketeering, so does the nature of the criminal racket figure in to the severity of their punishment?

    • Prison is more horrible than you can believe. Abusive COs breathing down your neck, lights on in your cell 24/7, shit food, everything regulated, poor medical care, fungi and viruses rampant.

      It takes humility to get through it. If you don’t have humility, you have the opportunity to learn to be humble. Prayer helps. Serving / helping other inmates by teaching GED classes or attending AA helps.

      I learned something there and I’m glad. I’m in a better place now than before I went so I hold out hope for anyone who is open and wants to improve their life.

      • My guess is getting raped for years ain’t no picnic. They also threatened these women with physical harm. I’m betting those weren’t empty threats. Great you’re so compassionate, though. To the pimps.

  • If Lauren and Allison both receive 4+ year sentences, Clare Bronfman fleeing the country and forfeiting her bond.

    Clare Bronfman could not handle 4 years of high school how is she going prison?

    As always thanks Krclaviger !!!!!

    Do not believe Bangkok(Scott)!!!!!!
    You are a wonderfully articulate and intelligent man!!!!’ “My cup my runneth over”!!!!!!

    • I think Clare will use all her resources to fight in hopes of an eventual acquittal or dismissal on appeal, or else just wearing the feds down until they settle for a deal with no hard prison time, allowing her to get away with living in the US like she wants and suffering nothing worse than perhaps a bit of time under house arrest – with the backup of using her resources to flee, if it comes down to it. I noticed that her sister’s husband has ties to Qatar, which is a posh place to live that doesn’t appear to have an extradition treaty with the US.

  • Sorry Claviger, pretty shitty predictions.

    There’s nothing in the law — or in the current plea deal agreements made by the EDNY — that says the judge must give the person who sat on the plea deal bus 1st a shorter sentence than the person who sat on it 2nd.

    Same is true for the person who sat on it 3rd.

    Your predictions assume that the judge will follow a straight line, from the 1st person to the 3rd person. That’s bullshit.

    The number of counts against each person doesn’t mean shit — since they’ll receive concurrent sentences for the 2nd or 3rd counts anyway. Nancy won’t inherently get a lesser sentence than Lauren unless she performs better on the witness stand at trial.

    What matters is their level of cooperation and the value of each person’s testimony, including their performances on the actual witness stand at trial.

    The EDNY is monitoring performance. They’ll base their prison recommendations on each person’s performance and overall VALUE during the trial.

    You can’t assume that just because a witness is ‘truthful’ that they’ll all have equal value, YOU FUCKEN RETARD.

    Fact is, whoever cooperates more fully (and provides the EDNY with the most critical info/testimony) will likely get the shortest prison recommendations by the EDNY. You earn your keep with Uncle Sam.

    You can’t assume a ‘straight line’ sentencing prediction based upon a metaphorical plea deal bus.

    The judge doesn’t give a fuck about the metaphorical plea deal ‘bus’ and who sat down first. Neither does the EDNY.

    The EDNY will only care about WITNESS PERFORMANCE and how valuable each person is during the trial. The judge will give weight to whatever the EDNY tells him about each defendant at sentencing.

    I predict that Claviger’s predictions will come up woefully inaccurate.

    • And what exactly are your predictions? Or would rather wait and take the safer option – and just agree with whatever Judge Garufis decides?

      • Krclaviger,

        BangkokJohnson sucks you in every time.

        Krclaviger you have a law degree and Scott has a GED….. maybe a GED I’m giving Scott the benefit of the doubt.

        *Please Note: I posted my original comment to you not to pay attention to Scott before you both posted.

        Can I predict the future or what ?

      • And krclaviger replys with exactly what everyone else was thinking. Maybe Bangcock already posted his predictions and Frank is sitting on the post until tomorrow morning. Let’s all get in our shots on Bangcock while Frank has him muted!

    • There is also the value provided between the time they flipped and the sentencing date, not just during the trial, whether it’s against existing defendants or additional people who also committed crimes, assuming the DOJ is interested in expanding the net. There are a lot of unknowns, I think it’s stupid to make predictions.

  • I take pleasure in knowing that next year at this time the former DOS masters will be shitting where they sleep, and doing menial jobs like they forced their DOS slave labor to perform.

    • Jesse Smellett is also black and homosexual, two favourite pets of pretentious sanctimonious liberals. Trump was found innocent and the establishment didn’t want to give two victories to conservatives by throwing that spoilt brat cocksucker in jail, so they let the little cunt go, knowing full well he was guilty. He was supposedly getting $60000 an episode for doing absolutely nothing. He wanted more privilege and he knew the environment is anti White male, anti Trump, so he did his disgraceful behaviour. Privileged as fuck. Does Kristin Kreuk want to lose her privilege by admitting she knew she was a part of a criminal organisation and is not a naive little flower whose farts smell like roses? What about Olivia Cheng, Mark Hildreth or any of the other lowlife d-list morons in NXIVM?

  • Allison Nancy and Lauren should be sentenced to 20 years each. If I were the judge I’d order capital punishment. You ruined it for so many. I hope you rot in prison Nancy.

  • 20 years for one, 20 years for other and they end up with 2 to 3 years? How does that happen? Good work Frank on this case.

  • Allison Mack as extra punishment should be forced to study all of Shadowstate’s writings about her like they are the Torah.

  • Why not put an ankle bracelet on any/all perpetrators involved?
    If he/she tries to leave the country, they are shot down by a missle in the shape of KR’s dick.

    In all seriousness though, destroy them if they attempt to flee the country. I think that’s more than fair, if they represent a flight risk.

    If any of the aforementioned women commit suicide, that would be a shame – I’d rather see them abused and mentally destroyed in prison. Prison is not meant for reflection in my opinion, it should be meant for retribution.
    Here’s hoping maximum sentences are distributed and all of their finances are completely drained by paying the fines as justly doled out by the judge, to the many,many victims involved.

    E.g. 4-5 year sentence for locking someone in a room for a couple years? Not good enough, not by a long shot.

  • If you never went to law school don’t judge anyone if you are part of a jury duty in a courthouse do not assume because you were not there whatever happened, just remember the court only uses people to judge others ,the only use people has jury duty that never went to law school because those people do not know how to judge that does seem mean that if someone ddid something wrong
    The person should not go unpunished, but the court should not allow hire people that never went to law school to judge someone else .the attorneys went to college to become attorneys and they study law, the judge went to college to study law and become a judge . they should be the one making the decision not the jury duty people trying to guess the futuref somebody else what’s going with be the system doesn’t work. Just remember Pontius Pilatus when he found Jesus Christ innocent And told the people you judge Him not me this man is innocent. Remember Pontius Pilate supposed to judge so he was able 2 realize Jesus Christ was innocent, but the people made the wrong decision for Jesus Christ only to be sorry then too late.
