Socialite scammer and “Soho grifter,” Anna Sorokin, more widely known by her fake German heiress alias, Anna Delvey, is getting out of prison early. The con artist-turned-folk hero, who was convicted in 2019 of second-degree grand larceny, theft of services and first-degree attempted grand larceny after defrauding banks, hotels, and even her so-called “friends” out of thousands of dollars, was originally sentenced to four to 12 years in prison, but has been approved for early parole thanks to good behavior. She could be released as early as next month.
As it happens, that means she’ll be able to catch the premiere of the Netflix series based on her shenanigans. The Shonda Rhimes-produced show has been getting buzz ever since it was first announced in 2018, but with filming already underway and a release date sometime this year, we’ve picked up a lot more info about the upcoming must-watch.
