Michael Avenatti Gets Sentenced To 14 Years In Prison For California Fraud Case

Michael Avenatti, known to some as the creepy porn lawyer, has just been sentenced to 14 years in prison for fraud in California.

This is on top of the four year sentence he is already serving.

It’s amazing to think that just a few years ago, this man was the darling of cable media who made countless appearances on CNN.

He was even floated as a possible presidential candidate.

Michael Avenatti, the already imprisoned lawyer who represented porn actress Stormy Daniels in litigation against Donald Trump, was sentenced on Monday to another 14 years in prison after he admitted to cheating four other clients, including a paraplegic, out of millions of dollars.

The sentence imposed by US District Judge James Selna in Santa Ana, California is in addition to the five years in prison that Avenatti, 51, was already serving for two unrelated convictions in Manhattan federal court.

Selna also ordered Avenatti to pay $10.8 million in restitution to the clients and the Internal Revenue Service. The agency said he obstructed it from collecting more than $3 million in payroll taxes from a coffee business he owned.

“Michael Avenatti was a corrupt lawyer who claimed he was fighting for the little guy. In fact, he only cared about his own selfish interests,” U.S. Attorney Martin Estrada in Los Angeles said. “Now he will serve a richly deserved prison sentence.”

The media treated this guy like a saint, based on nothing more than their shared hatred of Trump.

We’re probably not going to hear much more from Avenatti.

At least for fifteen years or so.
