Michael Avenatti used to be the darling of the liberal media but now he is a prison inmate.
A few months ago, he was found guilty of extorting Nike, now he has gotten four years in jail for defrauding Stormy Daniels.
People on the left actually thought this guy was presidential material.
FOX News reports:
Michael Avenatti sentenced to 4 years in prison for defrauding Stormy Daniels
Disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti was sentenced to four years in prison Thursday for cheating his former client, adult film star Stormy Daniels, out of $300,000.
Avenatti was convicted of aggravated identity fraud and wire fraud in New York federal court earlier this year. He faced a mandatory two years in prison for the former, and up to 20 for the latter.
Of the four years, 18 months will be served concurrently with the 2 1/2-year sentence he was previously given in a separate case for trying to extort Nike out of $25 million.
Avenatti spoke for 12 minutes at the sentencing, acknowledging the “series of mistakes” and “poor judgment” he exercised.
“I will forever be branded ‘disgraced lawyer’ and worse,” he said.
Ahead of sentencing, Avenatti had sent a letter apologizing to Daniels, but the judge said this gesture was “too little, too late.”
Avenatti did not want to appear in court for sentencing and had requested to be sentenced remotely. Judge Furman denied the request, ordering him to appear.
Never forget how the media gushed over this guy.
