Nxivm leader Keith Raniere may want to rethink this notion about going to trial next week. In another blow to his chances, Judge Nicholas Garaufis has denied his attempt to suppress explicit images of a 15-year-old girl that were found on one of his hard drives after a search of a townhouse in Halfmoon, New York last year.

Raniere had argued that that home was a private residence of his, and that he had an expectation of privacy because of it. And although the FBI had a warrant that allowed them to search the premises, the warrant limited the search to material that was related to crimes that occurred after January 1, 2015. The images of the girl were from 2005, and Raniere argued that the law enforcement agents should have ignored them.

After agreeing with Raniere's point that his objection was made in a timely manner, he destroys Raniere's argument by saying that Raniere is misreading the warrant, which allowed the agents to search for materials from before 2015 that were evidence of racketeering that happened after 2015…
