Michael Avenatti sentenced to 14 years in prison for stealing millions of dollars from clients
CNN–Disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti was sentenced Monday to 14 years in prison and ordered to pay nearly $11 million in restitution for embezzling millions of dollars from four of his clients and obstruction.
Avenatti pleaded guilty earlier this year to four counts of wire fraud for each client he stole from and one count of endeavoring to obstruct the administration of the Internal Revenue Code. Prosecutors said he obstructed the IRS’ effort to collect $5 million in unpaid payroll taxes for Tully’s Coffee.
Who’s the first, you ask? Joe Biden. But he has an excuse.
Well, Jake. Speaking of "bizarre conspiracy theories and smear campaigns spreading lies unmoored from reality"… How many times did you slobber over that deranged and indecent wack job, Michael Avenatti, on your show? Too many to count on your fingers and toes, I'll surmise.
