Michael Avenatti Is Indicted in California on Financial Crimes Charges

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer known for representing Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against President Trump, has been indicted by a Southern California grand jury on fraud, tax evasion, embezzlement and other charges.

The federal charges were disclosed in The Los Angeles Times and other news outlets.

Federal prosecutors in California planned a news conference for later in the day Thursday.

Mr. Avenatti will face 36 counts of perjury and various financial crimes. Prosecutors say he received settlements for clients, but did not inform them and kept and hid the money.

“I intend to fully fight all charges and plead not guilty,” Mr. Avenatti said on Twitter on Thursday. “I look forward to the entire truth being known as opposed to a one-sided version meant to sideline me.”
