Raniere co-founded NXIVM, a so-called self-improvement group, in 1998. The cult had nearly 20,000 members by the time it was exposed as a twisted, dangerous pyramid scheme in a 2017 New York Times article. In 2019, Raniere was found guilty of many charges, including sex trafficking, human trafficking, and racketeering; in 2020, he was sentenced to 120 years in prison. “I do believe I am innocent of the charges,” Raniere said at the time. “It is true I am not remorseful of the crimes I do not believe I committed at all.”
