NXIVM intercourse cult chief Keith Raniere is arguing he is being mistreated in jail so the jail can cease him from preventing again in court docket!
In new authorized paperwork obtained by The US Sun on Wednesday, Keith claimed he was positioned in solitary confinement after an assault in late July “left [him] dizzy for days and [he] couldn’t get off the bed.” He was allegedly attacked in the dining hall by prisoner Maurice Withers, 33, who is serving 18 years for trafficking five women, including at least one minor. Keith claims he “didn’t struggle again,” but he was placed in segregation pending an investigation.

As a refresher, again in 2020, Raniere was sentenced to 120 years behind bars after he was discovered responsible of intercourse trafficking, racketeering, little one pornography possession, and different crimes.
He’s presently making an attempt to attraction his conviction and even filed an affidavit itemizing the alleged abuses he is suffered whereas behind bars at USP Tucson in Arizona as a part of the continuing authorized course of. In his attraction, he alleges the FBI tampered with the photographs used as proof at his trial, which the federal government has referred to as “frivolous.” Now, based on his group, he believes the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) is purposefully forcing him to reside in inhumane circumstances to cease his authorized motion. Stacy Scheffthe previous intercourse cult chief’s lawyer, stated within the authorized docs:
“Mr. Raniere is the topic of ongoing retaliation by the Bureau of Prisons. Mr. Raniere was retaliated in opposition to by having his contacts and name listing scrubbed the day after he filed a movement exposing FBI malfeasance. Mr. Raniere filed a grievance about that retaliation and was shortly thereafter assaulted by one other inmate. Following the assault, Mr. Raniere was positioned within the SHU [Special Housing Unit] to research the assault.”
It stays unclear why he was attacked. Some supporters imagine the violence may have been prompted by the very fact TNT reportedly re-ran an episode of Rich and Shameless the day prior. The present was titled The Heiress and the Sex Cult and featured former members of NXIVM who accused Raniere and Clare Bronfman of wrongdoing. Seems cheap that would have stirred up some feelings from different prisoners.
But attorneys suppose extra is occurring. According to the newest report, the felony remains to be being held within the SHU the place he’s required to spend 23 hours of the day in a tiny cell alongside the opposite inmate, regardless of the assault having occurred a number of weeks in the past. He is allowed one hour of recreation in a small cage — however even this may be in gross circumstances. Stacy continued:
“That investigation cleared Mr. Raniere of any culpability. According to BOP policy after the investigation was concluded, which was weeks ago now, Keith should have been returned to his normal housing, but the retaliation continues as he remains in the SHU. Currently he is allowed one five-minute phone call per month, he cannot have a razor, he has no access to legal resources, and given books ‘at staff discretion.’ This is particularly egregious because Mr. Raniere is still actively fighting his case in the courts.”
On the inhumane remedy he and his cellmate have handled, she famous:
“Recently, Mr. Raniere was held in a cage for 4 hours subsequent to day-outdated human feces, which was on the ground and had been smeared everywhere in the wall. He was even pressured to eat lunch right here. Mr. Raniere has been given no clarification as to why he stays in these unacceptable and inhumane circumstances.”

Despite his shameful crimes, Keith nonetheless has loads of supporters, certainly one of whom is now talking out on his behalf. Actress and former NXIVM member Nicki Clyne stated in a video to The US Sun,
“Keith is concerned for his safety, because he is constantly being cycled through cellmates, and all it takes is one bad cellmate in solitary to end his life.”

“Keith has misplaced kilos since being in solitary, the place he was positioned for the only purpose of being the sufferer of an assault. This is a human rights situation.”
Perhaps if he actually cared about human rights, he would not have sexually abused so many ladies! Just saying! Thoughts?
