Why Anna Delvey Believes She Deserves a “Second Chance” After Release
Anna Delvey (a.k.a. Anna Sorokin) wants to re-invent herself.
ICYMI, the fake German heiress—who served as the inspiration for Netflix’s Inventing Anna—was recently released after spending more than a year in immigration custody in New York for overstaying her visa. Now, the 31-year-old is sharing her belief that she deserves a fresh slate moving forward.
“I feel like a deserve a second chance, it was my mistake that I made,” she said in an Oct. 12 interview with CNN. “I served my time and I feel like I should deserve a second opportunity.”
As for why she served time? In 2017, Sorokin was arrested and charged with defrauding or intentionally deceiving major financial institutions, banks, hotels, and acquaintances for a total amount upwards of $275,000. Two years later, she was sentenced to four to 12 years in prison after being convicted of attempted grand larceny, larceny in the second degree and theft of services, but was acquitted of two additional charges.
