Michael Avenatti guilty on all counts in Nike case

Lawyer Michael Avenatti has been found guilty on all counts of trying to extort up to $25 million from Nike.

The verdict was confirmed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan, which brought the case.

Avenatti faces a statutory maximum of 20 years in prison.

The jury's decision in U.S. District Court in Manhattan came Friday after a three-week trial for the lawyer who gained fame representing porn star star Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against President Donald Trump. Jurors began deliberating Wednesday.

Avenatti was arrested in March after he and an uncharged conspirator threatened to hold a news conference to ruin Nike’s reputation and crater its stock price unless it agreed to pay him and his client millions of dollars, the court papers said.
