(NEWS10)- Lauren Salzman, a former high-ranking member of NXIVM and daughter of co-founder Nancy Salzman, has been sentenced to probation, community service, and forfeiture of multiple properties.
Federal prosecutors recommended a lenient sentence for Salzman after she turned witness, providing what they said was “substantial assistance” to the court about former NXIVM leader Keith Raniere and his co-conspirators.
Prosecutors said that Salzman’s cooperation was important in the conviction of Raniere and that her guilty plea likely led to other defendants’ guilty pleas.
Salzman will serve five years probation and 300 hours of community service. She also gave up the rights to five properties located in Halfmoon, Clifton Park, and Albany as well as $515,577.
*CORRECTION: The court originally said Salzman was sentenced to time served plus probation but later clarified she was sentenced to 5 years probation.
