Nxivm leader Keith Raniere has already successfully kept child sexual assault and child porn charges severed from his upcoming trial. Can he keep the evidence of those child porn images out of the trial as well?

While Raniere's Nxivm co-defendants were pleading guilty to avoid trial in recent weeks, Raniere attacked the new charges against him that arrived with the government's second superseding indictment. Among those were allegations that he had sex with a girl of 15, and that he had naked images of the girl on a hard drive found at a house he used as a residence in Halfmoon, New York.

But Raniere convinced Judge Nicholas Garaufis that the child sex allegations were all confined to the Northern District of New York. The Nxivm trial is happening in the Eastern District, in Brooklyn, because the racketeering and other charges he's facing stem from incidents that happened not only in the Albany area but in New York City.
