Creepy Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti Indicted for Defrauding Porn Star of $200K


Michael Avenatti, the scummy, creepy porn lawyer that Democrats briefly said would make a good president, has now been indicted for stealing $200,000 from the very porn star who brought him onto the national scene.

Avenatti was indicted in New York on Wednesday and charged with diverting to his personal accounts $200,000 of a $300K settlement that porn actress Stormy Daniels was supposed to receive.

According to the Associated Press, Stormy Daniels is not directly named in the indictment, but the information concerning the cash makes it clear she is the client that Avenatti ripped off.

“No monies relating to Ms. Daniels were ever misappropriated or mishandled. She received millions of dollars-worth of legal services and we spent huge sums in expenses. She directly paid only $100.00 for all that she received. I look forward to a jury hearing the evidence,” he wrote on Twitter after the indictment was made public.

Avenatti added in another tweet that his deal with Daniels included getting a portion of her book royalties.

The indictment says that Avenatti fooled Daniels’ publisher to send him her money.

In announcing the new charges Wednesday, prosecutors said that Avenatti sent a “fraudulent and unauthorized letter” to Daniels’ literary agent, instructing the agent to send payments not to Daniels but to a bank account Avenatti controlled. They said he used the stolen funds to pay employees of his law firm and pay for hotels, airfare, dry cleaning and his Ferrari.

“Far from zealously representing his client, Avenatti, as alleged, instead engaged in outright deception and theft, victimizing rather than advocating for his client,” Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said in news release.

Avenatti “blatantly lied” and stole to maintain his “extravagant lifestyle,” Berman said.

This indictment is not the only legal trouble Avenatti is in:

Avenatti was previously charged in New York with trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike by threatening to expose claims that the shoemaker paid off high school basketball players to steer them to Nike-sponsored colleges. And in Los Angeles, he’s facing a multicount federal indictment alleging that he stole millions of dollars from clients, didn’t pay taxes, committed bank fraud and lied during bankruptcy proceedings.

Avenatti has denied the allegations against him on both coasts, saying he expects to be exonerated. The Los Angeles charges alone carry a potential penalty of more than 300 years in prison.

“I look forward to a jury hearing all of the evidence and passing judgment on my conduct,” Avenatti said to The AP.

Avenatti is just about cooked, folks. He will end up doing time for these cases.

No one deserves it more.
