High Profile Attorney Michael Avantti Facing up to 50 Years In Prison
High profile attorney Michael Avenatti is facing criminal charges on both US coasts.
Avenatti represented adult film actress Stormy Daniels in her hush money scandal involving President Trump.
US prosecutors there say he tried to extort $20 million from Nike by threatening to expose damaging information about the company.
Minutes after news about the New York charges broke federal prosecutors in California filed charges in a separate case against Avenatti.
The charges include wire and bank fraud.
If convicted on those charges Avenatti could get up to 50 years in federal prison.
