Michael Avenatti is facing 355 years in prison for this terrible crime
Creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti is in big trouble.
But no one knew just how deep the hole he was in really was.
That all changed when prosecutors arrested Avenatti on charges that could land him in jail for 355 years for this terrible crime.
Federal prosecutors in Los Angeles unveiled a 36-count grand jury indictment against Avenatti for stealing money from clients, failure to pay taxes, lying in a bankruptcy proceeding, and bank fraud.
ABC Los Angeles reports:
The Justice Department and Internal Revenue Service on Thursday announced the filing of a 36-count grand jury indictment against Michael Avenatti, the attorney famous for representing porn actress Stormy Daniels in legal battles against President Donald Trump.
The indictment filed against Avenatti alleges he stole millions of dollars from clients, didn’t pay his taxes, committed bank fraud and lied in bankruptcy proceedings. If found guilty, Avenatti could get a sentence of more than 300 years in federal prison, ABC News reports.
Avenatti said Thursday he will plead not guilty.
The new charges say he embezzled from a paraplegic man and four other clients and shuffled money between several accounts to deceive them.
For a brief period of time, Avenatti was considered a top-tier Democrat presidential candidate.
He was a near-nightly presence on CNN pressing the ridiculous case that Donald Trump should go to jail for made-up campaign finance violations in relation to hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels after she alleged an affair – which Trump denied – in the month before the 2016 election.
Those heady days are long gone.
Now he could spend the rest of his life behind bars.
