Keith Raniere being transported to NY via bus

Local

NXIVM Leader Keith Raniere is no longer at a federal holding facility in Oklahoma City.

Sources say he is currently being transferred via bus to NY Federal Court.

This comes after Raniere was arrested and charged with sex trafficking and other crimes.

According to a federal complaint, Raniere created a secret society of women whom he had sex with and branded with his initials. He’s accused of coercing them with the threat of releasing their highly personal information and taking their assets. 

This happened allegedly under the NXIVM umbrella, which was initially branded as a self-help group that Raniere ran for nearly two decades.

Raniere had a court appearance in March at the Federal Courthouse in Fort Worth, Texas.

If convicted, he faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison.
