Anna Sorokin was sentenced to between four and 12 years in prison
The fraudster, whose real name is Anna Sorokin, was arrested in 2018 and found guilty in May of 2019. A Manhattan jury found her guilty on the one charge of attempted grand theft, three charges of grand theft, and four charges of theft.
Sorokin, a Russian-born man, was sentenced to 4 to 12 years behind bars. He was released with a parole hearing in February 2021.
Anna Sorokin is currently in an ICE detention center located in New York.
Six weeks after being removed from Albion Correctional Facility on parole in February 2021, she discovered that she was in the care of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) because she had overstayed her visa, as per The Cut.
In an Insider article published in early February, Sorokin shares her own story and explains that she’s been in ICE custody for the past few months, waiting to find out whether she would get deported back to Germany.
“My visa violation was not intentional and mostly outside my own control,” the woman wrote in her letter, noting that she’s contesting her conviction to get her name cleared. “I have not violated even a single violation of New York state’s or ICE’s parole regulations. In spite of that, I’m still waiting to be provided with a clear and fair method of achieving compliance.”
On January. 19th, Sorokin was diagnosed with COVID-19 and was placed isolated in quarantine at the Orange Country Correctional Facility. “I’m certain I’ll make it through, but I’ve never been this sick for a long time,” she wrote.
She will not watch the Netflix show that tells her story.
As she’s currently detained, Sorokin isn’t able to have access to a television or laptop computer, and she also wrote on her blog that she wouldn’t have access to “Inventing Anna” any time soon.
“Even if I were to pull some strings and make it happen, nothing about seeing a fictionalized version of myself in this criminal-insane-asylum setting sounds appealing to me,” she wrote.
As part of her article, the journalist reveals that she had numerous phone calls and meetings with the show’s staff while they were working on the show that is described “from an editor’s point of view.”
