Former Media Darling Michael Avenatti Now Accused Of Scamming Stormy Daniels Out Of $300,000

Just a few months ago, people in the media were calling Michael Avenatti a contender for the 2020 Democratic nomination. He was on the air all the time, they couldn’t get enough of him.

Then he was accused of numerous crimes and he disappeared overnight.

Now there’s a new charge against him. He is accused of scamming his client Stormy Daniels out of $300,000.

Feds bring new charges against lawyer Michael Avenatti for misappropriating nearly $300,000 from former client Stormy Daniels

Federal prosecutors in New York charged Michael Avenatti with additional financial crimes Wednesday, including allegedly forging the signature of his former client Stormy Daniels and diverting nearly $300,000 owed to her for a book advance into his own account, according to court records filed on Wednesday.

Prosecutors said that he then used money he took from Daniels to make monthly payments on his Ferrari, as well as to cover airfare, dry cleaning, hotels and restaurant bills, as well as payroll and insurance costs for his law firm’s employees.

The new charges accuse Avenatti of misappropriating money that was supposed to be paid to Daniels when Avenatti was representing the adult film actress in her public battle against President Trump and his former attorney Michael Cohen.

“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,” Manhattan U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman said in a statement. “Avenatti then spent the money principally for his own personal and business purposes.”

He is probably going to go to jail for a very long time.
