'Creepy Porn Lawyer!' Avenatti Jeered As He Proclaims Innocence On Courthouse Steps

Attorney Michael Avenatti made a brief appearance in federal court in California on Monday, proclaiming his innocence on the courthouse steps as he was jeered by onlookers.

According to Reuters, the lawyer for adult film actress Stormy Daniels faces embezzlement and fraud charges, and did not enter a plea.

Avenatti is accused of using a client’s $1.6 million legal settlement for his own purposes, including paying $216,000 to Neiman Marcus, $68,500 at a luxury watch store, almost half a million dollars to pay a home mortgage, and thousands of dollars for a Porsche.

The charges also accuse Avenatti of fraudulently obtaining $4 million in bank loans from a Mississippi bank.

As he spoke to reporters, onlookers shouted β€œcreepy porn lawyer!” and β€œlock him up!”
