Fake millionaire heiress Anna Sorokin released early from jail
Albion, New York - Anna Sorokin was convicted of conning her way out of thousands of dollars. Now she is free after almost four years in prison.
When Anna Sorokin (30) was first detained in 2017, no one knew how long she would be behind bars. She was sentenced in 2019 to up to12 years in jail, but she has been released early for good behavior, according to the New York Post.
Sorokin was relieved to take her first steps into freedom after leaving a women's correctional facility in Albion, New York.
Sorokin was born in Russia but moved to Germany in her teens.
She later went to New York and led a life of luxury under a fake name, Anna Delvey. She posed as an millionaire heiress, but the scam was eventually busted.
Anna's case made big waves at the time. In addition to the prison sentence, she was also ordered to pay back the money.
While in jail, the 30-year-old kept a diary and attracted attention with ironic illustrations, drawing herself in designer clothes in prison.
She has already returned to Instagram and Twitter, appearing there under her fake name.
Netflix is reportedly producing a series about the fake heiress. According to Insider, Sorokin is using the $320,000 she received from the deal to cover her legal fees and pay back the people she scammed.
