Today, the story of restauranter Sarma Melngailis is profiled in a new Netflix series. Titled Bad Vegan: Fame. Fraud. Fugitives, the four-part series chronicles how Sarma went from a vegan cuisine star to a fugitive.
In 2017, Ms. Melngailis pleaded guilty to stealing over $200,000. She ended up serving half of a three-and-a-half-month jail sentence.
