Fake heiress Anna Sorokin will be released on parole early next year

Fake heiress Anna Sorokin, who scammed her way into New York society, has been granted parole and is expected to be released early next year, her lawyer confirmed to The Post.

“She went before the parole board this month and was granted parole,” said attorney Todd Spodek. “Anna has paid her debt to society handsomely, and I hope society repays the favor.”

Sorokin, 29, posed as a German heiress with a 60 million euro fortune to scam about $200,000 from banks and businesses, while also trying to obtain a $22 million loan to found an elite Manhattan art club.

She was convicted last year and sentenced to four to 12 years in prison in May 2019, after a trial that featured frequent sartorial meltdowns that delayed proceedings by hours.

She has been cooling her heels at the Albion Correctional Facility near Rochester, New York, where Long Island Lolita Amy Fisher served time in the 90s for shooting her then-lover’s wife.

She spent about  one and 1/2 years at the state prison but had been locked up at Rikers pending her trial in state court.

Her earliest eligible release date is Feb. 15, 2021, according to state prison records. She’ll likely be deported to Germany following her release.

At one point during the trial, Justice Diane Kiesel chastised Sorokin for being most “worried about who would play her in the Netflix or the HBO programs that we’re told are in the works.”

She reportedly infiltrated New York’s social scene, living in luxury hotels and hobnobbing with the city’s elite.

Her story has been turned into books and TV shows — including the hotly-anticipated Netflix series produced by Shonda Rhimes.

After her sentencing, the unrepentant social grifter said, “The thing is, I’m not sorry. I’d be lying to you and to everyone else and to myself if I said I was sorry for anything.”

The state’s Department of Correction and Community Supervision didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
