As a refresher, again in 2020, Raniere was sentenced to 120 years behind bars after he was discovered responsible of intercourse trafficking, racketeering, baby pornography possession, and different crimes.
He’s at present attempting to attraction his conviction and even filed an affidavit itemizing the alleged abuses he’s suffered whereas behind bars at USP Tucson in Arizona as a part of the continued authorized course of. In his attraction, he alleges the FBI tampered with the images used as proof at his trial, which the federal government has known as “frivolous.” Now, based on his crew, he believes the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) is purposefully forcing him to dwell in inhumane situations to cease his authorized motion. Stacy Scheff, the previous intercourse cult chief’s lawyer, mentioned 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 consider the violence might have been prompted by the actual fact TNT reportedly re-ran an episode of Wealthy and Shameless the day prior. The present was titled The Heiress and the Intercourse Cult and featured former members of NXIVM who accused Raniere and Clare Bronfman of wrongdoing. Appears cheap that might have stirred up some feelings from different prisoners.
However attorneys assume extra is occurring. In response to the newest report, the prison continues 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’s 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. In response to BOP coverage after the investigation was concluded, which was weeks in the past now, Keith ought to have been returned to his regular housing, however the retaliation continues as he stays within the SHU. At present he’s allowed one five-minute telephone name per 30 days, he can not have a razor, he has no entry to authorized sources, and given books ‘at employees discretion.’ That is significantly egregious as a result of Mr. Raniere continues to be actively preventing his case within the courts.”
On the inhumane remedy he and his cellmate have handled, she famous:
“Not too long ago, Mr. Raniere was held in a cage for 4 hours subsequent to day-old 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 rationalization as to why he stays in these unacceptable and inhumane situations.”
