The lawyer who represented porn star Stormy Daniels in a case against US President Donald Trump faces new charges, including stealing millions and embezzling money from a paraplegic.
Lawyer Michael Avenatti has been charged in a 36-count federal indictment alleging he stole millions of dollars from clients, did not pay his taxes, committed bank fraud and lied in bankruptcy proceedings.
The new charges do not include the New York extortion case alleging Avenatti demanded millions to stay quiet about claims he planned to reveal about Nike paying high school players. Avenatti has said he expects to be cleared in that case.
After blessing himself, he was stone-faced and stared straight ahead as the jury read the verdict. His sentencing is scheduled for June 17, and he faces up to 42 years.

Just because the sentence can be fourty two years, does not mean he is going to get even close to that much.
Yep. The way things go today, he could get the death penalty.

The guy is human filth. To think the Democrats actually rallied behind this guy for a time to be the next president...
Funny how minor investigations get these people thrown in jail. But year long major investigations come up with nothing on orange Hitler.

I'm sure California will elect him governor as soon as he gets out.

Avenatti didn't kill himself.
Just practicing for later.
