Avenatti is crying, thanking his family for standing by him. “I and I alone have destroyed my career, my relationships, my life, and there is no doubt that I deserve to pay, have paid, and will pay a further price for what I have done.”
The judge has already said he calculates the sentencing guidelines for Avenatti at somewhere between 9 and 11 years. The judge is now recounting the factual history of the Nike shakedown.
Disgraced lawyer Michael Avenatti was found guilty of trying to extort more than $20 million from Nike. He still faces two other federal trials.
What people are saying?
Carlo Albán Soooo… what would the sentence be for, say, helping to foment an insurrection and betraying the will of the American people, if you were, and I’m just spitballing here, say, a former mayor of NYC???
blazon As far as I’m concerned as long as trump continue to get passes, everybody should get a pass…. Either no one is above the law, or everybody is above the law..
