A federal court sentenced Keith Raniere, who founded and led NXVIM and Dominus Obsequious Sororium (DOS), which was a racketeering enterprise that engaged in human smuggling, human trafficking, forced labor, wire fraud and obstruction of justice, to 120 years in prison and fined him in the amount of $1,750,000. A federal jury convicted him in June 2019.
