Creepy Porn Lawyer Indicted for Defrauding Porn Star Client and Extortion Against Nike…

Creepy Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti has been indicted for identity theft, fraud, and ripping off his porn star client Stormy Daniels (indictment pdf below). Additionally, Avenatti has also been indicted for his extortion scheme against Nike apparel (indictment pdf below).

(U.S. Attorney SDNY) Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and William F. Sweeney Jr., Assistant Director-in-Charge of the New York Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), announced the indictment today of MICHAEL AVENATTI on fraud and aggravated identity theft charges.

As alleged, AVENATTI used misrepresentations and a fraudulent document purporting to bear his client’s name and signature to convince his client’s literary agent to divert money owed to AVENATTI’s client to an account controlled by AVENATTI. AVENATTI then spent the money principally for his own personal and business purposes. The fraud and aggravated identity theft case is assigned to U.S. District Judge Deborah Batts of the Southern District of New York.

AVENATTI was separately indicted today on extortion charges, which were the subject of a previous Complaint and arrest of AVENATTI, relating to his alleged attempt to extract more than $20 million in payments from Nike, Inc., by threatening to use his ability to garner publicity to inflict substantial financial and reputational harm on the company if his demands were not met. That case is assigned to U.S. District Judge Paul Gardephe of the Southern District of New York.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said: “Michael Avenatti abused and violated the core duty of an attorney – the duty to his client. As alleged, he used his position of trust to steal an advance on the client’s book deal.

As alleged, he blatantly lied to and stole from his client to maintain his extravagant lifestyle, including to pay for, among other things, a monthly car payment on a Ferrari. Far from zealously representing his client, Avenatti, as alleged, instead engaged in outright deception and theft, victimizing rather than advocating for his client.” (read more)

    The emotionally unstable Ford woman was unbelievable to begin with, but when Avenatti jumped in with his lying client trying to sell the gang-bang / spiked punch bowl story it was too preposterous even for democrats, so they threw him overboard.

    Ok, I have to be honest. When CPL first talked about his intention of running for POTUS as a Democrat I laughed. But now I definitely think he qualifies. While Democrats promote allowing felons vote from prison, CPL can promise to allow fellons be POTUS from prison. Our first felon candidate from his jail cell. CNN will think that’s very diverse and progressive.

    I post an excerpt from the linked USAO SDNY article beecause the lone sentence after sentencing guidelines is very interesting. It appears to me that all ZERO judges are on notice that the world is watching.

    FTA: AVENATTI, 48, of Los Angeles, California, is charged in the fraud and aggravated identity theft indictment with one count of wire fraud, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, and one count of aggravated identity theft, which carries a mandatory term of imprisonment of two years in addition to the sentence imposed for the wire fraud charge.

    AVENATTI is charged in the extortion indictment with one count of conspiracy to transmit interstate communications with intent to extort, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison, one count of conspiracy to commit extortion, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, one count of transmission of interstate communications with intent to extort, which carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison, and one count of extortion, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.

    The maximum potential sentences in both cases are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes only, as any sentencing of the defendant will be determined by the judge.

    Prosecutors have charged Michael Avenatti, 48, with ripping off Stormy Daniels
    The controversial ex lawyer of Daniels is accused of taking $300,000 which had been intended to be paid to the former porn star as part of her tell-all book deal
    A charging document said Avenatti forged Daniels’ signiture and had large advances on the book deal diverted to an account controlled by himself
    He then used the money for airfare, restaurants, car payments and dry cleaning
    The new charges were filed by federal prosecutors in Manhattan who have already accused Avenatti of extortion in a case involving the sports brand Nike
    Avenatti, 48, was previously arrested by the FBI and charged with embezzlement, wire, bank and bankruptcy fraud as well as tax-related charges
    The attorney said: ‘No monies relating to Daniels were ever misappropriated or mishandled,’ adding ‘she received millions of dollars worth of legal services’

    Thing is, the media knew how he was. They did not care because it suited their poltical means. They tolerated his bullying and anger.

    In Daniels case it was simple greed. in the media’s case, it was purely poltics.

    So, what “higher calling” did they serve here? None.
