"Creepy Porn Lawyer" Avenatti Found Guilty On All Charges Of Extorting Nike, Faces 42 Years In Jail

(Update: 20:05ET): Stormy Daniels released a statement on Friday evening, commenting on the Michael Avenatti conviction. Daniels had a lot to say about Avenatti, and not all nice things. 

Avenatti will be in a New York court in April on charges that he defrauded Daniels over a book deal.

Disgraced lawyer Michael Avenatti was convicted by a New York federal jury on Friday of all three charges related to his efforts to extort up to $25 million from athletic apparel giant Nike.

The three counts include extortion, wire fraud, and transmission of interstate communications with intent to extort. 

The verdict in U.S. District Court in Manhattan came several years after Avenatti represented porn star Stormy Daniels in her legal disputes with President Trump.

Avenatti was charged last March after he tried to extort Nike for as much as $25 million to investigate alleged corruption in youth basketball

Last month, Avenatti was jailed for bond violations. He faces several more trials in other federal criminal cases. 

The outstanding cases against the Californian lawyer are charges of defrauding his past clients out of millions of dollars, along with several tax violations.  

Avenatti's next trial is scheduled in New York for the April timeframe, will cover the charges that he defrauded Daniels of book proceeds. Then in May, in Los Angeles, he faces another trial that he cheated clients out of millions of dollars. 

This is the same man who was for a while championed as the next great white hope to run against, and de-throne, President Trump...

After the news broke, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted: MAGA: Michael Avenatti Going Away

Founder of Trump Students Charlie Kirk tweeted that at one point CNN and MSNC had Avenatti on-air over 108 times in just 64 days. The media's love affair of Avenatti has since plunged, maybe he’ll get an interview or two while behind bars.

Director of IWF's Center For Progress & Innovation Julie Gunlock tweeted, "It's fun to watch these idiots praise #Avenatti. My favorites are the NeverTrumper women slobbering all over him. I guess they got their CNN contracts tho." 

Avenatti's lawyers told the press he would appeal based on jury instructions. Lawyers said Avenatti is "very disappointed" with the verdict.

The "creepy porn star" lawyer faces up to a combined 42 years in prison.
