Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
NXIVM: Clare Bronfman, heiress to Seagram's, pleads guilty in self-help sex cult sex slavery sex trafficking prostitution racketeering case
took a plea deal Friday along with [NXIUM's] longtime bookkeeper [!].

Bronfman, an heiress to the Seagram's liquor fortune, pleaded guilty to a count of conspiracy to conceal and harbor illegal aliens [?!] for financial gain and a count of fraudulent use of identification [?].

hmm, an alias (eg. name, SS#, EIN#) probably relating ahh transportation and hospitality services, or guest extortion, to corporate filing and tax evasion?
She is expected to face 21 months to 27 months in prison and pay $6 million [!] in restitution.
Would that punishment befits crimes against humanity. Wardrobe details.
"Your Honor, I was afforded a great gift by my grandfather and father," Bronfman said in a small voice and slight British accent to U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis, reading from prepared remarks.
< wipes tears >
Prosecutors have estimated she faces 21 to 27 months in prison -- though she faces a maximum of 25 years -- and will owe about $96,000 in restitution payments to a Jane Doe 12. She will also have to forfeit $6 million within 60 days [NY or IRS?], based on the property [!] used to facilitate the harboring charge. [...] Bronfman made false statements to help a woman she called Jane Doe 12 get a work visa for the United States. The woman then worked for Bronfman and for a NXIVM organization, Bronfman admitted, and was not paid.
[The "bookeeper"] helped a Mexican national named Loretta Garza Davila obtain a TN visa to work in the United States by making false statements to the U.S. Consulate in Mexico.... [The "bookeeper"] faces a maximum of 10 years in prison, but the government estimated she will serve six to 12 months
