MICHAEL AVENATTI: More Legal Woes
Written by KingCnote on April 12, 2019
Michael Avenatti is dealing with yet another legal headache. Federal prosecutors have charged him with bilking a paraplegic client out of millions.
A 36-count indictment in California accuses Stormy Daniels‘s former attorney of fraud, perjury, failure to pay taxes and other financial crimes. Prosecutors say he took a huge chunk of a $4 million settlement. The IRS also says he owes millions in back taxes and made false statements about his income.
These charges are separate from the case where he’s accused of trying to extort money out of Nike.
Avenatti vehemently denies the charges. (TMZ)
