Clare Bronfman, who faces federal criminal charges related to the group Nxivm, wants to build a 46-unit complex……..
Seagram beverage company heir Clare Bronfman wants to develop a 46-unit residential building in Encino, even as she fights criminal charges in federal court over her involvement in an alleged sex cult.
An entity tied to Bronfman is seeking to build at 4717 N. Libbet Avenue. The five-story complex would have four units set aside for low-income renters. Parking for 60 cars would be located underground.
Federal prosecutors allege that Bronfman was the chief financier of a self-help group called Nxivm. Authorities say she was complicit in leader Keith Raniere’s physical and psychological abuse of a group of women in the group.
Bronfman was arrested in July on conspiracy to commit identity theft and racketeering charges, according to the Washington Post.
