Creepy Porn Lawyer Avenatti Convicted of Fraud

This is the turd that CNN and MSNBC polished during his stint as Stormy Daniels’ lawyer in an anti-Trump lawsuit.

NY Post

Attorney-turned-criminal Michael Avenatti was convicted Friday of swiping nearly $300,000 in book-advance money from his then-client Stormy Daniels.

The now-twice-convicted felon — and one-time rising star — now faces a maximum of 22 years in prison for his conviction on wire fraud and aggravated identity theft charges.

The jury started deliberating Wednesday. He’s scheduled to be sentenced on May 24.

……His conviction marks another black eye for the already tarnished attorney, who rose to national fame during the Trump administration as a vocal foe of the president while he was representing Daniels.

Avenatti was a darling of the left during his time as Daniels’ attorney, who relished in sparring with former President Donald Trump and his supporters on social media and cable news.

……He even floated running for president against Trump in 2020, as he was reportedly dubbed “the savior of the republic.”

Throughout the trial, prosecutors painted Avenatti, 50, as a calculating thief who stole two book-advance payments from Daniels in 2018 that totaled nearly $300,000.

The porn star, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, inked a book deal that year with St. Martin’s Press after it was revealed she was paid $130,000 in hush money before the 2016 presidential election to keep quiet about an alleged sexual encounter she had with Donald Trump years earlier.

……In 2020, Avenatti was convicted in the same federal court of trying to shake down sportswear giant Nike for $25 million.

……He was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison in that case.

 

Guess he’ll have to learn how to penal code.
