Avenatti Gets Jail Time After Swindling Salacious Client 

Linkedin Share

Everyone knows the old saying, “two wrongs don’t make a right”, but it’s rare that we get such a sublime example of this simple truth.

This week, Michael Avenatti was found guilty of stealing from his client, adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who herself had swindled over $100,000 in “hush money” payments from Donald Trump, through his own sleazy lawyer Michael Cohen.

Funny how the world works sometimes, isn’t it?

In any case, Avenatti is headed to jail.

A federal judge in New York on Thursday sentenced disgraced lawyer Michael Avenatti to four years in prison for stealing money owed to his former client, onetime adult film actor Stormy Daniels, for writing an explosive 2018 book.

U.S. District Court Judge Jesse Furman called the defendant’s theft from Daniels “craven and egregious” and said he was fueled by “blind ambition.”

The defense had proposed that Avenatti be sentenced to three years in prison, while prosecutors had sought four years behind bars.

Avenatti was brutalized in a statement by the prosecutors.

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said Avenatti is rightfully paying a “substantial” price for his “brazen crimes.”

“Lawyers have a duty to be loyal and advocates for their clients. Far from being a loyal advocate for his client, Michael Avenatti stole his client’s identity and her money in order to line his own pockets,” Williams said in a statement.

Stormy Daniels’ extortion of Trump, followed by Avenatti’s extortion of Daniels are two wrongs, without a doubt, but there’s nothing right about situation either.
