Infamous fraudster Anna Sorokin released from ICE custody
Sorokin, who also goes by Anna Delvey, was convicted in 2019 of larceny and theft services charges
Convicted felon Anna Sorokin was freed Friday from an upstate correctional facility after 17 months in detention and will remain in New York City as her deportation case winds through immigration court, according to her spokesman.
"She got out Friday afternoon," her spokesman, Juda Engelmayer, told Fox News Digital. "She's looking forward to restarting her life."
The fake heiress, who pretended to have a 60 million euro fortune, was a fixture among the city's rich and fashionable before her real identity was unmasked.
The 31-year-old social grifter, whose cons inspired the hit Netflix series "Inventing Anna," persuaded a judge to grant her bond while she fights her deportation to Germany for overstaying her visa.

Her two prior bids for release from Orange County Correctional Facility in Goshen were shot down.
After a two-day hearing, Judge Charles Conroy ruled Wednesday that Sorokin "remains a present danger to the community and presents some flight risk, such risk and danger can be mitigated by specific alternatives to detention and monetary bond."

The conditions of her release include a $10,000 bond, a GPS ankle monitor, 24-hour home confinement and a complete ban from social media, according to the order obtained by Fox News Digital.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, who opposed the decision, declined to comment.
"The government failed to demonstrate that she posed such a threat to public safety that the only possible solution is to lock her up in jail," her immigration lawyer John Sandweg previously told Fox News Digital.
The con woman, who also goes by the alias Anna Delvey, was detained by ICE March 30, 2021 – weeks after her early release from prison on larceny and theft of services convictions.
A jury found her guilty in 2019 of stealing more than $200,000 from banks and businesses and submitting forged documents to try to score a $22 million loan by posing as the scion of a wealthy German family.
"The thing is, I am not sorry," she told a newspaper in a jailhouse interview before her sentencing. The judge gave her four to 12 years in prison.
