Disgraced attorney Michael Avenatti was sentenced to four years in prison for cheating his former client, adult film star Stormy Daniels, out of $300,000.

Avenatti was convicted of aggravated identity fraud and wire fraud earlier this year. He faced up to two years in prison for the former, and 20 for the latter.

Fox News reports:

Of the four years, 30 months will be served concurrently with the 2 1/2-year sentence he was previously given in a separate case for trying to extort Nike out of $25 million.

Avenatti also acknowledged the series of mistakes he made.

“I will forever be branded ‘disgraced lawyer’ and worse,” he said.

Avenatti requested to be sentenced remotely but Judge Furman denied the request.

“In the Court’s view, the gravity and significance of the sentencing proceeding would be ill served by a remote proceeding,” Furman wrote.

Daniels took delight in the ruling, tweeting, “”See ya there, b—-!… except I’m flying in first class. Buwahaha.”

Avenatti rose to fame as the attorney for Daniels when she was trying to get out of an October 2016 nondisclosure agreement where she received $130,000 in exchange for her silence regarding her claim that she had an affair with former President Donald Trump in 2006.

Trump has repeatedly denied that the affair took place.

Too bad he won’t be out in time to resume being the democRAT favorite candidate for “president”. On the other hand, democRATs can always write him in.
