Scammer Anna Delvey sentenced to 4 to 12 years in prison

 

On the heels of Anna Sorokin AKA Anna Delvey being found guilty on eight counts, including four counts of theft of services and second-degree grand larceny, the fake German heiress has been sentenced to four to 12 years in prison.

Known by many as “the Soho Grifter,” Sorokin was sentenced by Judge Diane Kiesel on Thursday and is getting credit for the 561 days she’s already served. 

A reporter for Business Insider noted that the concurrent sentences she received are “for her 8 convictions, out of 10 charges prosecutors initially brought against her.”

 

Sorokin was found guilty at trial in April and faced five to 15 years in prison for the charge of second-degree grand larceny. 

Known for swindling hotels, restaurants, and many individuals out of tens of thousands of dollars, Sorokin was adept at pretending to have had an endless bank account.

The 28-year-old’s grifting went mainstream when the Vanity Fair photo editor she tricked penned an essay indicating she was forced to pay the $70,000 bill Sorokin left her with for a trip to Morocco. Additionally, there was also a now-viral New York magazine article explaining her financial gymnastics.
