A federal judge issued an order formally rejecting Keith Raniere's request to be released from custody.

The founder of (Nexium) NXIVM, an alleged sex cult in Albany will not be getting out of jail while he awaits trial.

According to the Albany Times Union, a federal judge issued an order formally rejecting Keith Raniere's request to be released from custody.

The judge's ruling said Raniere is a flight risk and danger to the community who has access to enormous wealth from his supporters.

Prosecutors say they have text messages that prove he was involved in recruiting women as sex slaves.
