    Avanti found guilty on all counts

    Stormy Daniels' disgraced lawyer Michael Avenatti faces 42 years in prison after being found GUILTY of trying extort Nike for $25M by threatening to 'expose evidence they bribed college basketball players'

    Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who gained fame by representing porn star Stormy Daniels against President Trump, has been convicted of trying to extort Nike for $25million.

    The 48-year-old lawyer was convicted by a jury in New York on Friday after a three-week trial in which he was accused of threatening to use his media access to hurt Nike's reputation and stock price unless they paid him up to $25 million.

    He was charged last year after the sportswear company accused him of threatening to expose Nike for allegedly funneling payments to college basketball players.

    Avenatti, who denied the allegations, was convicted on Friday on all three counts: Attempted extortion, honest services wire fraud and transmission of interstate communications with intent to extort.

    The maximum sentence is 42 years behind bars.

    The Trump Boomerang Effect strikes again!
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    Too bad he wasn't one of Trumps mob, he'd probably get a pardon.
