#AceNewsReport – Apr.26: The Manhattan jury found Anna Sorokin guilty of four counts of theft of services, three counts of grand larceny and one count of attempted grand larceny following a monthlong trial that attracted international attention: She was acquitted of one count of grand larceny and one count of attempted grand larceny.
CBSNY reports a New York jury has convicted a woman of pretending to be an extravagant socialite – but in reality – swindled from banks, hotels, and friends who believed she was a wealthy German heiress: The Manhattan jury found Anna Sorokin guilty of four counts of theft of services, three counts of grand larceny and one count of attempted grand larceny following a month-long trial that attracted international attention. She was acquitted of one count of grand larceny and one count of attempted grand larceny.
Her defense attorney, Todd Spodek, said Sorokin could face between five and 15 years in prison on the most serious charge: She is scheduled to be sentenced May 9.
“Fake it until you make it. Anna had to live by this,” defense attorney Todd Spodek said.
Sorokin also faces deportation to Germany because authorities say she overstayed her visa.
Using the name Anna Delvey, Sorokin deceived friends and financial institutions into believing she had a fortune of about $67 million (60 million euros) overseas that would cover her high-end clothing, luxury hotel stays and trans-Atlantic travel: She claimed her father was a diplomat or an oil baron and went to extraordinary lengths to have others pay her way.
Prosecutors alleged that she promised one friend an all-expenses paid trip to Morocco but then stuck her with the $62,000 bill — Sorokin was acquitted of that charge.
