A day after sex cult leader is found guilty, Investigation Discovery greenlights The Lost Women of Nxivm special.
A federal jury in Brooklyn, N.Y., found Keith Raniere, leader of the sex cult Nxivm, guilty on charges of sex trafficking, forced labor conspiracy, human trafficking and multiple counts of racketeering including sexual exploitation of a child. The jury returned its verdict after less than five hours of deliberation. The 58-year old Raniere, who was known as "Vanguard," faces up to life in prison. His sentencing is set for Sept. 25. On the heels of the conviction, Investigation Discovery announced it gave the green light to The Lost Women Of Nxivm. The two-hour special will premiere this December on ID.
“As the cryptic and chilling details behind Nxivm continue to surface, each revelation is more astonishing than the last,” Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America,
