Anna Sorokin, the scammer who posed as a German heiress named Anna Delvey to get banks to borrow her money, apologized for the first time.
In May 2019, Sorokin was sentenced to four to twelve years in prison. A day after receiving her verdict, she told the New York Times, "The thing is, I'm not sorry. I would lie to you and everyone else and to myself if I said I was sorry for anything."
A New York Post report released on Friday said that Sorokin appeared to be expressing remorse during a hearing with a parole board on October 6th.
"I just want to say that I am really ashamed and really sorry for what I did. I fully understand that many people suffered when I thought I was doing nothing wrong," Sorokin said, according to a transcript from the New York Post quoted hearing.
The New York Post reported that Sorokin had been released early from prison for "good behavior" and is expected to be released in mid-February 2021.

Sorokin used her bogus social status to convince banks to borrow their money and was sentenced to four to twelve years in prison in May 2019 on a series of charges related to her fraud.
Using her pseudonym "Delvey," Sorokin defrauded hotels, corporations, financial institutions and friends out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, making them believe she had assets of about $ 67 million, the AP previously reported.
An exclusive report released on Friday by the New York Post stated that Sorokin appeared to be saying during an October 6 hearing with a parole board that she was repentant for her actions.
"I just want to say that I am really ashamed and really sorry for what I did. I fully understand that many people suffered when I thought I was doing nothing wrong," Sorokin said, according to a transcript from the New York Post quoted hearing.

The New York Post reported that Sorokin's apology was in response to Commissioner Marc Coppola, who told her during the October hearing that a statement she made during an interview with the New York Times the day after she was sentenced to prison in 2019 had given up came up as "funky".
Sorkin's apology appeared to be a U-turn on previous statements she reportedly made following her 2019 conviction.
"The thing is, I'm not sorry," Sorokin had told the New York Times. "I would be lying to you and everyone else and myself if I said I was sorry for anything. I regret how I did certain things."
In its October parole hearing, the New York Post said Sorokin had "taken out of context" her quote from the New York Times.
"I think she asked me if I had regrets and my answer was that I had no regrets at the time," Sorokin said in October, according to the minutes quoted by the New York Post. "She just took me completely out of context."
The New York Post reported that Sorokin had been released early from prison for "good behavior" and is expected to be released in mid-February 2021.
Sorokin, who posted multiple times from jail to her Instagram account @theannadelvey, shared a clip from "Legal Blonde" titled "Parole" on October 10th. Sorokin previously wrote in an Instagram post that she wanted people to stop visiting her prison, New York's Albion Correctional Facility.
Todd Spodek, Sorokin's attorney, did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment on Sorokin's probation status.
According to Sorokin's Instagram account, she appears to be writing a digital diary on a website called "Anna Delvey Diaries".
Netflix acquired the rights to turn Sorokin's story into a Shonda Rhimes project, which Insider's Jacob Shamsian first reported in April 2019. Julia Garner will appear as Delvey in the upcoming series "Inventing Anna".
