Fake Heiress Anna Sorokin Sentenced To Max 12 Years In Prison
A German woman who pretended to be a wealthy heiress in New York was sentenced to four to 12 years in prison on Thursday.
28-year-old Anna Sorokin was born in Russia before moving to Germany as a teenager and New York City as a young adult.
In the US, she went by the name of Anna Delvey.
Prosecutors in the Manhattan district attorney’s office said Sorokin defrauded others of about $275,000 and falsely told others that she had 60 million euros in assets.
