Allison Mack is enjoying her last few days of freedom before she’s expected to serve three years for her role in the Nxivm sex cult scandal.
“Smallville” actress Mack, 39, was snapped out and about with a new man in Long Beach, Calif. as they grabbed a bite to eat at Little Coyote Pizza Thursday.
The couple was spotted lunching, shopping and laughing while enjoying each other’s company at the outdoor eatery.
Mack wore a sundress with black boots that covered her court-ordered ankle monitor while her unidentified beau kept it simple in a camel-colored shirt, black button-up and black jeans.
Back in June, Mack was sentenced to 36 months for serving as a Nxivm “slave master” that brainwashed women into becoming sex slaves for the group’s twisted leader, Keith Raniere.
“In the language of [the cult], you were a slave as well as a master … It is hard to determine an appropriate sentence for a perpetrator who is also her co-conspirator’s victim,” Brooklyn federal court Judge Nicholas Gaurafis told Mack during her sentencing.
He added that her punishment needed to serve as a “forceful deterrent,” but told Mack that he did not “doubt that you were also manipulated and that you also felt captive.”
During the trial, Mack apologized for her part in the sex cult after hearing disturbing victim testimony, calling it the “greatest regret of my life.”
“I’m filled with remorse and guilt. I renounced Keith Raniere and all of his teachings. From the deepest part of my soul, I am sorry.”
She is set to begin her sentence on Sept. 29, according to Deadline.
