I was in the overflow room for today's the sentencing of Allison Mack. Two overflow rooms were set aside, but only one was needed, even with social distancing. Early in the sentencing hearing, Judge Garaufis stated that the guideline range for the charges she pled guilty to was 14 to 17.5 years.

There were only 2 victim impact statements. The first one was on video, and her name is Tabby Chapman. She worked with Mack on her website. Mack required her to take expensive NXIVM courses in order to work with her. Chapman let her guard down, and was subjected to punishing "feedback," supposedly to make her a better person. Chapman moved to Albany, where she was constantly criticized by both Nancy (presumably Nancy Salzman, Raniere's business partner) and Allison. Allison became a bully and criticized everything about Chapman, her inadequacies as a friend, her weight, and her partner. Chapman was told she needed to fix these issues for the sake of her future children. She needed to love herself enough to work on her issues. She was required to take more NXIVM courses.

Chapman left NXIVM in 2014. Her statement shows that Mack engaged in cruel behavior even before the formation of DOS. Chapman said Mack's role as a monster in DOS was "natural." By this point, it sounded like Chapman was crying. She has trouble making new friends, and has to contend with an internal dialogue regarding her "flaws."
