Anna Delvey, whose real name is Anna Sorokin (likely?), turned a countrywide figure immediately after the release of Netflix’s Inventing Anna, a spectacular telling of the strategies and cons she pulled off to insert herself into the New York art environment.
On this episode of Dirty Cash, Entrepreneur.com’s Electronic Deputy Editor Melissa Malamut presents us a blow-by-blow account of Anna’s rise and stunning drop, and the victims she left in her wake as she blew by hundreds of thousands of bucks. (Listen to the episode earlier mentioned.)
In April 2019, Delvey was convicted on 8 prices, which includes next-diploma grand larceny, theft of services, and very first-diploma tried grand larceny. She was sentenced to 4 to 12 years in prison and fined $24,000, moreover requested to pay back back again her victims. “I am surprised by the depth of the defendant’s deception,” Justice Kiesel explained, handing down the sentence.
So here is the large problem on everyone’s brain: if Anna’s target was (and stays to be) fame, was time served at four a long time in the clink extra than well worth it? Speaking to the New York Occasions after her sentencing, Anna claimed bluntly, “I’d be lying to you and to all people else and to myself if I said I was sorry for anything at all. I regret the way I went about specific items.”
