The indictment accuses Mack of recruiting women to join what they believed was a female mentorship group.

Investigators say those women were then exploited and forced to have sex with Raniere. In exchange, prosecutors say Mack received financial benefits from Raniere.

If convicted, they face up to life in prison.

NewsChannel 13 is told Raniere will be arraigned at a later date.
