NXIVM leader Keith Raniere doesn't want his victims to remain anonymous at his sentencing.

Raniere is opposing a motion to allow his victims to deliver their impact statements without their names being revealed in court.


A jury found him guilty on charges of racketeering, forced labor, wire fraud conspiracy, and sex trafficking.

During the trial, former NXIVM members testified and spoke about their experiences of physical and mental pain - including the branding of Raniere's initials on them.

His sentencing has been delayed indefinitely.
