NEW YORK (Reuters) - Seagram liquor heiress Clare Bronfman pleaded guilty on Friday to harboring an illegal immigrant and enabling credit card fraud as part of an alleged sex cult based in upstate New York.

Bronfman, 40, entered her plea to the two criminal counts before U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis in federal court in Brooklyn, New York. She is one of several people charged in connection with a secretive organization called Nxivm, which federal prosecutors have described as a racketeering organization.

Bronfman admitted that she knowingly harbored a woman brought to the United States on a fake work visa in order to obtain that woman’s labor for herself and the organization. She also said she helped Nxivm’s founder, Keith Raniere, use a deceased woman’s credit card.

As part of her plea, Bronfman agreed to forfeit $6 million, and not to appeal any prison sentence of 27 months or less. She said she was “truly remorseful.”

1. This case is vile. Sexual slavery, encouraging women to join a sex cult

Rape of children. Women keeping slaves both sexual and otherwise. Its repugnant.

Edit: I am not singling out the women. Ranier is clearly the ring leader. It's just shocking the level of manipulation and disgusting human rights abuses going on.
