Michael Avenatti sentenced to jail for stealing from porn star Stormy Daniels, the client he represented against Donald Trump

Disgraced US attorney, Michael Avenatti was sentenced to four years in jail for stealing book financial proceeds from his client, Stormy Daniels, a former prn star he represented against former US president, Donald Trump.

The lawyer was sentenced to four years in a Manhattan federal courtroom on Thursday, June 2. Since he is currently incarcerated, he will spend another 2 1/2 years in prison in addition to the 2 1/2 years he is already serving for another fraud conviction.

Avenatti was convicted of wire fraud and aggravated identity theft for stealing about $300,000 from Daniels that she was supposed to receive in connection with a book contract.


Prosecutors noted how Avenatti stole from his client while simultaneously presenting himself to the world as her champion and defender.

‘Avenatti stole from his client. He did so to support his own business and fund his own lifestyle. He did so despite presenting himself to the world as his client’s champion and defender and despite using that feigned credibility to secure fame and pursue political influence. And he did so by exploiting his position of trust and authority as an attorney, by forging his client’s signature, and by lying to his client and others repeatedly and callously for months,’ prosecutors said.

Judge Jesse M Furman said Avenatti’s crime was ‘out of desperation’ at a time when his law firm was struggling. He said the sentence ‘will send a message to lawyers’ of the consequences when they leave the tenets of the profession to go astray.

‘It has been three years since she discovered what Mr. Avenatti has done and she was devastated,’ Clark Brewster, Stormy Daniels’ current lawyer, said. Daniels was not present in court.

‘The regularly accepted theme was this guy was a great lawyer but … his legal scholarship based on the cases we took over is in doubt. This was a deceitful scheme. It wasn’t a mistake. It was calculated,’ he added
