Michael Avenatti Sentenced To 4 Years in Prison

Stormy Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, was sentenced to four years in jail on Thursday for deceiving her.

For stealing from Daniels, Avenatti was found guilty of wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.

The judge permitted Avenatti to complete nearly half of his sentence while incarcerated for extortion against Nike.

For stealing from Daniels, he will serve an additional two and a half years in prison.

Avenatti was also ordered to pay $148,750 to Daniels and $297,900 to the US.

Avenatti hugged Baum in court, waved to a row of supporters and said, "Thank you" before the US Marshals led him out of the courtroom.
