Camila remembers being naked in bed with Raniere when she was just 15.

She said, “I vividly recall him reaching over a ledge next to the bed and grabbing a camera. He then proceeded to position my body and photograph me. I was shocked and confused, and expressed my discomfort, but he did it anyways. It was an unforgettably humiliating and degrading experience.”

Raniere is making yet another motion for a new trial. It’s his third. He claims that newly discovered evidence shows that the government manufactured child pornography and planted it on a computer hard drive.

The US Attorney answers that investigators found images on a hard drive seized from a home in Halfmoon.

In exhibit A: Camila confirms that the photos were of her when she was a child, taken by Keith Raniere, in the loft at his so-called “Executive Library” on Hale Drive in Clifton Park.

She said, “On September 18, 2005, Raniere first had sexual intercourse with me. I know the date of that event because he told me that it would be our anniversary, which he required me to observe every year.”

After that, she said “he would regularly instruct me to go to 8 Hale Drive, or sometimes to other homes where the residents were away, remove my clothes and wait for him. Sometimes I had to wait hours for him to arrive. When he arrived, he would have sex with me.”

Raniere was convicted in 2019 of charges including racketeering and sex trafficking. He is serving a sentence of 120 years in prison.

Prosecutors also argue that what a retired FBI agent allegedly found after reviewing trial evidence for Raniere, cannot be considered “newly discovered evidence.”
