Week Two in Trial of NXIVM Founder Keith Raniere in Brooklyn

Testimony resumed on Monday in the trial of NXIVM founder Keith Raniere.

Jurors heard more testimony from a film maker who claims to be a former member of the group.

He testified that Raniere bragged about trying to break TV actress Allison Mack, who was later revealed to be one of the organizers of a sex club within the organization.She pleaded guilty last month to racketeering and conspiracy charges.

Raniere's trial is expected to last for several more weeks.

The trial has adjourned for the day Tuesday because an alternate juror called in sick.

Senior Judge Nicholas Garaufis asked the jury to be back at 9:30 Wednesday morning.
