A federal judge in Brooklyn sentenced NXIVM leader Keith Raniere to 120 years in prison this week, following several hours of statements from victims who leveled words like monster, predator, parasite and terrorist at the man whose crimes included the sexual abuse of a 15-year-old Mexican girl.

In this episode, Times Union Editor Casey Seiler, Managing Editor Brendan Lyons and Courts reporter Rob Gavin discuss the event that sealed the downfall of the Saratoga County-based guru who cloaked his cruelty in the language of self-empowerment.
