NXIVM leader to face accusers
May 06, 2019 07:22 PM
Opening statements are set for Tuesday in the trial of NXIVM leader Keith Raniere.
Raniere is accused of forming a secret society within the organization and recruiting sex slaves.
Since he was arrested last year, five people connected to the group have pleaded guilty.
Women, who prosecutors say were once Raniere's loyal followers, are now set to testify against him.
A jury of eight men and four women will hear the case.
NewsChannel 13 will have a crew in Brooklyn for opening statements on Tuesday and have live reports on air and online.
