Anna Sorokin, the fraudulent socialite who snookered banks, credit card providers and travel companies—and whose deceit also allegedly touched some top law firms—was convicted Thursday in Manhattan of stealing more than $200,000 and aiming to steal millions more.

A New York State Supreme Court jury found Sorokin guilty of eight of the 10 charges she faced. None them included her alleged failure to pay over $250,000 in fees to Perkins Coie, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher and Lowenstein Sandler—referenced in court filings as “uncharged bad acts”— and Sorokin was acquitted on one attempted first degree grand larceny charge that directly invoked her Gibson Dunn attorney’s unwitting help as she lied in a failed effort to secure a $22 million bank loan.
