Delvey Sorokin was taken into ICE custody in March 2021. She's since been moved around to other facilities and is currently locked up in Orange County Correctional Facility in NY where she claims she “has not heard of any other detained people” getting boosters.
She was found guilty of scamming $200,000 from banks and businesses while posing as a German heiress. She also attempted to scam her way into getting a $22 million bank loan to launch a members-only art club in Manhattan.
Netflix sparked controversy when they paid her a whopping $320,000 for the rights to her story. Delvey's character was played by Ozark actress Julia Garner. Of course, more than half of the money went to her restitution and legal fees.
Delvey Sorokin, she joined this lawsuit "because everyone who wants a booster shot to protect themselves should be able to get one."
