BREAKING: Michael Avenatti Found Guilty on All Charges in Nike Extortion Trial – Faces 42 Years in Prison

Michael Avenatti

Creepy Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti was convicted by a jury in U.S. District Court in Manhattan in the Nike extortion trial.

In November, a federal grand jury charged Michael Avenatti with extortion and wire fraud in the case where he was charged with attempting to extort millions of dollars from Nike.

According to the complaint, Avenatti threatened to hold a press conference to announce misconduct by Nike unless the athletic apparel company hired Avenatti and his co-conspirator to conduct an internal investigation for over $20 million.

Avenatti faced three charges after a federal grand jury in November returned a superseding indictment adding 1 count of wire fraud, and on Friday he was convicted on all three charges.

Avenatti faces up to 42 years in prison and the sentencing is set for June 17.

A reporter who was inside the courtroom on Friday said Avenatti “stared straight ahead and showed no reaction when the verdict was read.”

In a separate case in California, Avenatti was charged with defrauding his clients out of millions of dollars and other tax crimes.

The California case is still pending.

Avenatti was once a darling of the left and now he’s in jail. Life comes at you fast.
