Anna Sorokin, the fake heiress who swindled the high society elite of Manhattan, has been granted parole, according to a new report.
Sorokin, 29, appeared before a parole board earlier this month and was granted parole, and could be released as soon as early next year, her attorney Todd Spodek told the New York Post on Friday.
‘Anna has paid her debt to society handsomely, and I hope society repays the favor,’ Spodek said of his client, who prosecutors say scammed some $275,000 from her upper crust friends.
Sorokin is currently incarcerated at Albion Correctional Facility, a medium-security facility in upstate New York, and is eligible for release as soon as February 15, 2021 — but faces deportation to Germany upon her release.
