Anna Delvey gets bail if she can find a place to stay

Socialist con man Anna Delvey can be released from an ICE detention center, but only if the convicted fraudster can find a place to stay, Vidak For Congress has learned.

On Wednesday, US immigration judge Charles Conroy granted her $10,000 bail.

But Delvey must provide a residential address where she will be under “24 hour confinement” for “the duration of her immigration process”.

We hear Delvey [aka Anna Sorokin] has the money for a place, but struggles to find a place to call home before her detention.

The judge also ruled that Delvey – who has 1 million Instagram followers – cannot post “directly or through a third party” on social media.

Her attorney, Duncan Levin, said in a statement: “We are very pleased with the court’s decision today to release Anna Sorokin. The judge rightly acknowledged that Anna poses no danger to the community. While there are still a few hurdles to overcome regarding her release terms, Anna is excited to get out so she can focus on challenging her wrongful conviction.

The scammer was convicted in New York State for fraud and sentenced to 12 years in prison in 2019. She was released early last year for good behavior but was arrested six weeks later by ICE agents.

After burning bridges and cheating friends by pretending to be a German heiress, it will be interesting to see who comes up to set her up. (Perhaps a pen pal from prison, like Julia Fox? The pair became friends while Delvey was in prison, with the “Uncut Gems” star calling her “my sweet sister” and saying she “killed it from behind bars.” )

Delvey had partied his way through NYC’s elite social circles by posing as an heiress, cleaning up luxury hotels out of thousands, and scamming a friend into paying for a luxury trip to Morocco. Netflix’s hit series “Inventing Anna” not only showed her bad checks and manipulation of staff at posh hotels, but also that she was staying with her boyfriend at a high-society woman’s house.

Vidak For Congress reported exclusively that in 2017 she managed to work her way through a four-month stay at the Wooster Street headquarters of dubious credit card company Magnises from Fyre Festival fraudster Billy McFarland.

“She hung out and went to the parties,” the source told us. “She was there, just sitting there — all the time… The company eventually moved into a mansion. That’s the only way they got her out! She had been there for four months!”

In 2019, Delvey was convicted on eight counts, including grand theft and theft of services. She was also convicted of attempted grand larceny for trying to squeeze her way into a $22 million bank loan. She was sentenced to 4 to 12 years in prison and was released on February 11, 2021 for good behavior.

She was subsequently retrieved by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers on March 25, 2021 and has been held at the Orange County Correctional Facility in Goshen, NY ever since.

Delvey has spent her time in detention selling artwork and NFTs that she said gave buyers access to “my prison pens and stationery that I hand-matched to my signed white cotton prison t-shirts and panties.”

If released, she will continue to appeal both her criminal conviction and her deportation.
