Super grifter Anna Sorokin, aka Anna delvey, was sentenced to four to 12 years in prison on Thursday in a Manhattan court
The fake German heiress broke down in tears as she is sentenced to four to 12 years in prison for swindling $275,000 from banks and hotels to bankroll her lavish New York lifestyle
The 28-year-old con artist’s sentence follows her conviction last month on multiple counts of grand larceny and theft of services
In addition to the prison sentence, Sorokin was ordered to pay nearly $200,000 in restitution and $24,000 in fines 
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has said it will seek to deport Sorokin to Germany following her release 
Sorokin has been in custody since her October 2017 arrest and was facing 15 years in prison 
Her ruse included swindling tens of thousands of dollars from banks, hotels and friends that she used to bankroll her lavish New York lifestyle
She posed as a fake German heiress named Anna Delvey to further the scam 
Sorokin, who moved to Germany with her family in 2007 from her native Russia, had falsely claimed that her father was a diplomat or an oil baron.
In reality, her father worked as a truck driver and later as an executive at a transport company until it became insolvent in 2013. He then opened a business installing underfloor heating.
Sorokin’s father disowned her following the verdict last month and said that she had borrowed money from them too.
‘I really do hope my daughter finds what she is looking for, whatever it is,’ her father said. ‘I do not have any influence on her life and what she does. It is down to her what she has done and it is something I am not comfortable to talk about.’

In an interview with Russian newspaper Komsomolskaya Prava, her father said: ‘Our daughter has never sent us any money. On the contrary, she was borrowing. Of course we are very concerned about her.
‘She has a selfish personality, we can’t do anything about it. We raised her well.’
Sorokin parading as a German heiress, defrauded financial institutions and conned Manhattan’s social elite into believing she had an overseas fortune of about $67 million that could cover her jet-setting, A-Lister lifestyle

Former high school classmates said Sorokin was an honors student and excelled in foreign languages, including English, German and French.
She had always dreamed of working in the world of fashion and magazines, her childhood friends recalled.
While most accounts of her early life said she left Germany to study at London’s prestigious Central St Martins College of Art. The school confirmed that she never attended despite being accepted.
Instead, Sorokin returned to Berlin and interned in the fashion department of a public relations firm.
She then relocated to Paris where she secured a coveted internship at the French fashion magazine Purple. It’s believed to be around this time that she changed her name from Sorokin to Delvey.
Acquaintances say Sorokin had spent several years playing the part of an art-obsessed German heiress across the world before she eventually came to New York with a designer-clad wardrobe and the social connections she needed to make it.
