Michael Avenatti arrested, indicted for extortion and fraud

Lawyer Michael Avenatti is now facing decades behind bars.

On Monday, Michael Avenatti was arrested and charged in New York City for attempting to extort Nike for $25 million. 

Apparently, the former creepy porn lawyer, who did represent porn star Stormy Daniels, threatened the company that unless the company paid him the exorbitant amount he was going to release information intended to damage Nike.

He was taken into custody right after posting this message to social media, seeming to indicate his plan to release the damaging info.

That’s just the beginning of Avenatti’s problem’s on the west coast.  He’s also been federally charged for embezzling a client’s money in order to pay his own personal debts as well as using fake tax return to secure bank loans.

If found guilty on all charges, Avenatti could get nearly 50 years in prison.
