Former upstate New York cult NXIVM’s benefactor Clare Bronfman has been sentenced to 6 years in prison Wednesday for her involvement in a federal sex slave case. Bronfman financially supported the former cult’s leader, Raniere, who was charged last year.
The organization operated like a cult where members joined a secret sorority. The all-female members were then brainwashed and turned into sex slaves for the leader. Raniere also made the girls brand his initials on their bodies.
