BREAKING: Michael Avenatti Found Guilty on All Charges in Nike Extortion Trial
Creepy Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti was convicted by a jury in U.S. District Court in Manhattan in the Nike extortion trial.
In November, a federal grand jury charged Michael Avenatti with extortion and wire fraud in the case where he was charged with attempting to extort millions of dollars from Nike.
According to the complaint, Avenatti threatened to hold a press conference to announce misconduct by Nike unless the athletic apparel company hired Avenatti and his co-conspirator to conduct an internal investigation for over $20 million.
Avenatti faced three charges after a federal grand jury in November returned a superseding indictment adding 1 count of wire fraud, and on Friday he was convicted on all three charges.
A reporter who was inside the courtroom on Friday said Avenatti “stared straight ahead and showed no reaction when the verdict was read.”
