Sentenced for scams, fake heiress not sorry 'for anything'
NEW YORK (AP) - A con artist who was sentenced to four to 12 years in prison for swindling banks, hotels and wealthy New Yorkers says she's not sorry for anything she did.
Anna Sorokin told The New York Times that she regrets only the way she went about "certain things."
Prosecutors said Sorokin used a fake identity as a German heiress named Anna Delvey to scam victims out of more than $200,000.
Sorokin apologized "for the mistakes I made" at her sentencing Thursday. But she told the Times in a jailhouse interview Friday, "I'd be lying to you and to everyone else and to myself if I said I was sorry for anything."
She said she always intended to pay back her creditors, which included banks, two hotels and a private jet company.
