There is a New Jersey angle to Anna Sorokin, also known as Anna Delvey.

Sorokin spent time in the Bergen County, New Jersey jail, 130 miles away from Atlantic City.

There is a great Netflix television series that I highly recommend called Inventing Anna.

It's a true crime drama, with some admitted embellishments.

We really enjoyed the series. We think that you will, too. The lead actress, Julia Garner is also a major character in another Netflix hit series, Ozark, along with Jason Bateman and Laura Linney.

Garner was nominated for an Emmy award for both roles, winning for her role in Ozark.

The Inventing Anna series is 9 episodes. Once you begin, you'll binge-watch it until the end, in just a weekend or less. We did.

Without spoiling the plot, she performs well beyond her years throughout, while earning the confidence of many high-powered bankers and other well connected professionals … convincing almost everyone that she meets, that she is a rich heiress.

Sorokin spent two years in Rikers Island prison before being convicted of multiple counts in The New York State Supreme Court of grand larceny and theft of services.

Sorokin was sentenced to 12 years in prison and was released in February, 2021.

Until recently, Sorokin had always maintained that she didn't feel bad about her crimes.

More recently Sorokin has expressed regret for her crimes and the people that she hurt.

Anna Sorokin, moved to the United States from Russia, with her family in 2007.

The main character in Inventing Anna is Anna Delvey a Russian-born woman who pretends to be a wealthy German heiress. Her real name is Anna Sorokin.

This is the real Anna Sorokin:

In May 2019, Ms. Sorokin was sentenced to four to 12 years in prison for financial crimes including grand larceny and stealing a private jet.

Sorokin bilked banks and bamboozled some of the richest people in New York … fooling them all that she was a German heiress.

Sorokin was released from an immigration detention facility in Goshen, New York on Friday, October 7, 2022 and sent back to an apartment in Manhattan.

Sorokin was sentenced to the ICE detention facility, because a Judge determined that she was “unrepentant.”

Sorokin’s release comes with a number of restrictions, including not being able to use the internet and she will wear an ankle bracelet.
