Keith Raniere, founder of NXIVM, was sentenced to 120 years in prison on Tuesday. Raniere was charged with sex trafficking, sexual coercion and racketeering in June 2019. Despite ex-DOS members’ claims that all sexual relations were consensual, Judge Garaufis stood by his decision to have the 60-year-old spend the remainder of his life in prison. Garaufis also ordered the cult leader to pay a $1.75 million fine.
