Anna Sorokin freed from upstate prison, heads straight to NYC

Fake German heiress Anna Sorokin was released from an upstate prison on Friday and immediately headed to Manhattan after spending more than a year behind bars, law enforcement sources said.

The 31-year-old con artist – who became the subject of the Netflix show “Inventing Anna” – was released from the Orange County Correctional Facility in Goshen and driven in a white van to FBI headquarters in lower Manhattan to fill out paperwork, sources said.

When she was processed for release, Sorokin was asked to produce forms detailing who she will live with and where under the terms of her home detention, according to law enforcement sources.

Sorokin – who for years defrauded wealthy New York socialites by posing as a fake heiress named Anna Delvey – is banned from using social media under the terms of her release.

This is the federal prison that Sorokin was released from on Friday.

She must also remain on 24-hour house arrest with electronic monitoring, in addition to posting $10,000 bail, according to the judge’s order.

The fake heiress first served four years behind bars in connection with her year-long scam and was released for good behavior in June 2021.

She was quickly arrested again by ICE agents and was held in the upstate jail for 17 months.
