WASHINGTON, Oct 6 – Novosti. Anna Sorokina, who posed as a millionaire, will be released from the migration prison in the United States on bail, reports the Daily Beast.
“The judge rightly considered that Anna does not pose a threat to the community,” lawyer Sorokina quoted the publication as saying.
The migration judge released Sorokin on $10,000 bail, the report said.
The US Migration Service detained Sorokina a few weeks after being released from prison in February last year, in March 2021, the judge considering the visa violation case considered that she could leave the country and ordered Sorokina to be taken into custody, the publication clarifies.
Until the completion of the necessary legal procedures, Sorokina will remain under arrest, the report said.
As reported, in February 2021, Sorokin, convicted of fraud, was released from a New York prison for good behavior.
Sorokina arrived in the US in 2016 from Germany , where she moved from Russia at the age of 16. In the US, she posed as the heiress of a $60 million fortune in Germany and called herself Anna Delvey. Using the fictitious story of a wealthy heiress, Sorokin secured access to the high society of New York before the exposure.
She lived for months in debt in expensive New York hotels and hosted dinners for friends at the best restaurants, while trying to get a $22 million loan for the construction of an exhibition center under false documents. Ultimately, she failed to reborrow the money again, she was evicted from the last hotel for large debts, and she had to ask friends for a place to sleep. Sorokina was arrested in October 2017.
Her story is the basis for the Netflix series Inventing Anna.
