Title: Yikes: New 36-count Avenatti indictment alleges embezzlement of disabled client’s settlement [335 years]

When it rains, it pours. Michael Avenatti already faces a number of federal charges relating to alleged fraud and extortion, and we can now add tax evasion to the list. Prosecutors will file a 36-count indictment in Los Angeles today against the celebrity attorney who briefly flirted with the idea of running for president:

Celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti is expected be slammed Thursday with a 36-count indictment by a federal grand jury in Los Angeles.

The indictment, scheduled to be discussed at a press conference in Los Angeles at 9 a.m. Pacific Time, comes more than two weeks after federal prosecutors in Los Angele and New York hit Avenatti with separate criminal complaints.

A press advisory issued by prosecutors says that the IRS is involved in the case, which suggests Avenatti will be charged with tax crimes.

NBC later reported that it includes tax crimes, as well as stealing from the disabledSay what?
Former attorney for Stormy Daniels and potential Presidential candidate Michael Avenatti has been indicted by a federal grand jury in California on 36 counts, including embezzling from a paraplegic, court documents show. …

Avenatti faces charges of wire fraud, failure to college and withhold payroll taxes, attempting to obstruct the IRS, failing to file tax returns, aggravated identity fraud, bank fraud and false testimony under oath during bankruptcy.

The charge involving the paraplegic states that Avenatti lied to his client several times, including telling him that L.A. County hadn’t paid him in a $4 million dollar settlement as a lump sum, which the county had.

Good Lord. If that’s true, and let’s emphasize that it hasn’t yet been proven, Avenatti would reset the scale for despicable. In typical fashion, Avenatti responded with a come at me bro statement, along with a somewhat bizarre biblical reference under the circumstances:
For 20 years, I have represented Davids vs. Goliaths and relied on due process and our system of justice. Along the way, I have made many powerful enemies. I am entitled to a FULL presumption of innocence and am confident that justice will be done once ALL of the facts are known.

— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) April 11, 2019

David and Goliath? Maybe Robin Hood is a better historical analogy, only with a hefty transactional fee if the allegations are accurate. And once again, let us revel in the irony of Avenatti’s embrace of due process after his bizarre attempt to railroad Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation process to the Supreme Court. Any appeals that reach that level should be fun fun fun.

Some of the charges may be related to allegations already announced, as federal prosecutors have to get a grand jury to formally issue indictments. The IRS angle is new, and might explain the seizure of Avenatti’s jet earlier this week. Adding those to the list of charges Avenatti faces would require either a separate or superceding indictment. If it’s the latter, then not all of the 36 counts will be new, but enough of them will be to make Avenatti’s defense even more complicated.

Prosecutors will hold a presser today starting at noon to review the indictment and any new allegations emerging from it. Avenatti’s public defender will likely have more to say afterward, but if he’s any kind of lawyer, he’ll keep Avenatti from adding to the public record. We’ll have more as developments warrant.

Update: Here’s a fun factoid from Politico:
New York prosecutors worked to coordinate the arrest with those in Los Angeles, who at the time charged Avenatti with bank and wire fraud. The list of alleged crimes committed by the lawyer has since multiplied so much that if convicted, Avenatti would face a maximum sentence of 333 years plus a mandatory two-year sentence for aggravated identity theft, California prosecutors said.

Yeah, but he’d be eligible for parole in, oh … 284 years and nine months. In reality, the sentences would run concurrently (or mostly so) and his lack of previous convictions would put him on the lighter side of sentencing recommendations. Twenty years or so might be more realistic — and certainly bad enough.


Poster Comment:

At least Avenatti qualified to get a free federal public defender.

Both his jets, his sports cars, and most of his stuff are already gone.

That's some real Dem presidential material, going to waste.

Celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti is all assured of being bare ass fucked in Prison.

Well, I bet that'll cut into his campaign-trail time.
But if Lyndon LaRouche can run from a prison cell, Creepy Porn Lawyer ought to be able to pull it off, too.

Yeah, me too, as a matter of fact. Then justice will bite him in the ass.

Well, maybe not.


"Mr. Avenatti, can you show us just how much of Bubba's BBC
that you'll be able to swallow when his buddy Rastus is
already balls deep in yo' tight white hiney?"

However, male rape in American prisons is both overestimated and underestimated. It varies greatly among jails, state prisons, federal prisons and how they are staffed and operated.

Avenatti is likely to serve time in a Club Fed, probably the one in Maryland that most ex-pols and Wall Street lawyers are sent to. Even if they put him in a real prison, being a lawyer would be enough to get him immunity from violence from day one. There will always be cons who want his free legal advice.

EXACTLY.

There will be ZERO "justice." Come on, guys...

Avenatti -- like Blasey Ford and Jussie Smollet -- were just hired guns by The Swamp. And NOTHING HAPPENED TO THEM DESPITE COMMITTING SERIOUS CRIMES.

Nothing will happen to Avenetti either; As TC suggests, destination Club Fed charade will give the absurd suggestion of "justice served."

Oh, that's rich.

If I'm Trump, I go waaaay out of my way to have REAL "Justice" served. WITH a bag o' chips.

Probably, but I'd be ok with it simply because if he gets a couple decades or more he will go insane without freedom to go where he wants, do what he wants, schmooze with cronies and be on TV. In a Fed lockup, I think he'll be extremely limited in visitor availability and certainly won't be able to grandstand. Plus, his schedule will be very routine and set by somebody else. And after a year or so of being sick of it, he'll still know there are 20 or 30 more to go - I think Fed time means at least 85% IIRC.

It will be utter hell for a grandstanding barackbag like this barackhole.

Good.

I'm wondering why, exactly, the California bar association hasn't already disbarred this a-hole.

He has clearly stolen $4 million from a mentally ill disabled client. He got the $4 million into his law firm's account, doled out $124,000 over the course of 3-4 years, and stole the other $3.7 million so he could live high off the hog. All this time, he was refusing to pay or file his income taxes or pay the necessary taxes for his employees, like unemployment and social security taxes, etc.

How does this crook still have a valid law license?

Presumption of innocence, my ass. He's guilty as hell and it has been obvious for some time. So where is the esteemed California bar association? They have more evidence than is needed to disbar him for months now, yet they do nothing.

I'm pretty sure the bar-ass is afraid of getting sued out of existence itself if it disbars even CPL before he's convicted of felonies.

Suppose they disbarred him and somehow he managed to finagle dropped charges or a not-guilty verdict?

It seems obvious on the face of it, but I wouldn't make a decision like that until a Guilty verdict is rendered.

No way.

They already have plenty of grounds to disbar him. Taking the $4M from the disabled mentally ill guy and spending all of it on his high-flying lifestyle while only giving the guy $120K and now he's broke?

There are very strict laws about lawyers receiving money for clients in a law firm account for that client. Creepy Porn Lawyer just ignored those and robbed the guy blind, just like he defrauded his employees on paying their payroll taxes, just like he hasn't paid or even filed taxes for 8 years or so.

He's nothing but a crook. The bar would do well to disbar him immediately so people don't ask too many questions about other scumbag lawyers still in good standing with the Cali bar.

Well, I don't know the rules that govern the bar-asses, what degree of proof they're required to have and if they have any immunity for decisions made.

I agree there seems to be plenty of obvious proof, if what we're being told is correct - I'd ditch him instantly if I was sure the decision would stand.

Don't really care though, as long as he's cooked.

I want to see his pompous preening ass utterly humiliated in court.

In short, I want to see him publicly destroyed.
