A U.S. district judge has ruled against NXVIM leader Keith Raniere, and will allow victims who provide victim impact statements by letter or in open court to do so without publicly revealing their names.
Raniere filed a motion last week, calling for them to be identified.
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.
