The abrasive attorney who garnered fame by representing adult film actress Stormy Daniels in a case against President Donald J. Trump has now been charged with stealing money from her.

“Attorney Michael Avenatti has been charged with ripping off porn star Stormy Daniels, the client who made him famous,” according to Associated Press. “The allegations against Avenatti were revealed in charges filed Wednesday in New York. Federal prosecutors say Avenatti took money Daniels was supposed to get from a book deal.”

Avenatti, once a frequent guest on cable news networks like CNN and MSNBC who was known for his tough talk and ridicule of Trump, denied the allegations on Twitter.

“No monies relating to Ms. Daniels were ever misappropriated or mishandled. She received millions of dollars worth of legal services and we spent huge sums in expenses. She directly paid only $100.00 for all that she received. I look forward to a jury hearing the evidence,” he said.

Avenatti was recently charged with several felonies related to his dealings with past clients.

Big League Politics reported:

Creepy porn lawyer and known huckster Michael Avenatti has been indicted by a Los Angeles grand jury on 36 charges, ranging from, fraud, embezzlement, and failure to pay taxes, to perjury.

“Avenatti stole millions of dollars from five clients and used a tangled web of shell companies and bank accounts to cover up the theft, the Santa Ana grand jury alleged in an indictment that prosecutors will make public Thursday,” said LA Times. 

The attorney, known for his representation of adult film actress Stormy Daniels in a lawsuit against President Donald J. Trump – which he lost – allegedly embezzled a $4 million settlement from a mentally ill paraplegic client named Geoffrey Ernest Johnson. The report said that Avenatti his the money from Johnson for years.

“In 2017, Avenatti received $2.75 million in proceeds from another client’s legal settlement, but concealed that too, the indictment says,” the report said. “The next day, he put $2.5 million of that money into the purchase of a private jet for Passport 420, LLC, a company he effectively owned, according to prosecutors.”

If convicted on all counts, Avenatti faces up to 335 years in prison.

He was previously indicted on four counts extortion for his dealings with Nike corporation, and separately on wire fraud and bank fraud.

Ankle Monitors are Now being Used on Louisville, Kentucky Residents Who Contract the Wuhan Virus

Published

on

Kentucky is taking draconian measures to keep individuals who catch the Wuhan Virus at home.

Louisville residents who come into contact with Wuhan Virus patients but do not isolate themselves are being forced to wear ankle bracelets.

A judge even ordered one resident to stay at home after not deciding to self-quarantine. According to a CNN affiliate WDRB, the person, identified as D.L. in the court order, is living with “someone who has tested positive for the illness and another person who is a presumptive case,” per an affidavit from Dr. Sarah Moyer, the director of the health department.

Due to his exposure to the Wuhan Virus, D.L. was instructed to stay at home last week. However, family members claimed that D.L. “leaves the house often.”

When D.L. did not respond or even comply with the health department’s messages, Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Angela Bisig instructed the Department of Corrections to place a global positioning device on D.L. for the next two weeks. If D.L. goes out of the house again, he or she could face criminal charges, according to the WDRB report.

D.L. is not alone in having to wear ankle monitors to keep the virus from spreading. WDRB reported that there are three other known cases at the moment. Two other people who live in the same house — one who tested positive for the virus, and another who tested negative — were ordered to stay at home last week after both refused to self-quarantine.

WDRB also reported that another man was subject to house arrest after he left his house to go shopping despite having tested positive for the Wuhan Virus.

WDRB reports that Jefferson County courts have set up an on-call judge for these kinds of scenarios.

Under Kentucky’s current lockdown measures, only “essential” businesses can stay open.

Organizations providing charitable and social services can also stay open. These include food banks and places that offer food, shelter, and social services to economically disadvantaged or disabled people. However, these organizations must practice social distancing while doing their work.

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear has advised that all schools stay closed through May 1st and has implemented travel restrictions. The state is also releasing at least 186 prisoners convicted of “non-violent” crimes on commuted sentences. According to Michael Brown, the secretary of the Kentucky Justice and Public Safety Cabinet, prisoners have to find a place where they can stay and are then required to self-quarantine for a period of 14 days.

Although not as draconian as states like California, which have infringed on gun rights by having municipalities declare gun stores as “non-essential”, Kentucky is beginning to take measures that would concern any advocate of civil liberties.
