Avenatti Makes Initial Appearance In California Fraud Case

Reuters reports attorney Michael Avenatti arrived at U.S. District Court in Santa Ana, California, on Monday for his first appearance on fraud and embezzlement charges.

Known for representing Stormy Daniels in her legal battles with U.S. President Donald Trump, the 48-year-old attorney was expected to face a detention hearing on charges of using a clientโ€™s court settlement for personal matters.

He has been charged separately in New York with what prosecutors said was an attempt to โ€œshake downโ€ Nike for more than $20 million.

Avenatti has repeatedly said he is innocent of all charges.

He was accused of using his clientโ€™s $1.6 million settlement in order to buy personal luxury items and of fraudulently obtaining $4 million in bank loans from a Mississippi bank.
