ALBANY — Former NXIVM president Nancy Salzman is out of federal prison less than 20 months into her 3½ year sentence for admitted crimes as Keith Raniere’s top deputy in the cult-like personal growth organization.

The 69-year-old Salzman, formerly of Halfmoon, was expected to be relocated Thursday to a halfway house in Albany, according to a letter from the federal Bureau of Prisons sent to NXIVM victims that was obtained by the Times Union.

In September 2021, Senior U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis sentenced Salzman to the prison term and fined her $150,000 based on her earlier guilty plea to racketeering conspiracy. Salzman reported to federal prison in February 2022. As recently as this week, the Bureau of Prison’s website listed Salzman as an inmate in a federal lockup in Hazelton, W.Va. Her release date had been listed as July 2, 2024.

On Thursday, the website updated Salzman’s status to say she was “not in BOP custody.” Salzman’s new release date was listed as June 17, 2024. In mid-July, federal court filings showed Salzman was scheduled to be released to a halfway house under the 2018 First Step Act, which allows federal inmates to request compassionate release after they exhaust administrative requests through the prison system.
