Federal prosecutors want NXIVM's longtime bookkeeper Kathy Russell to serve six months to a year behind bars.

In a recommendation to the judge, prosecutors say her blind loyalty to leader Keith Raniere facilitated the abuse of his victims.

That sentence is along the guidelines of the plea deal she accepted.

Russell, the last of the NXIVM defendants to be sentenced, will learn her fate in federal court on October 6.
