Lawyer jailed for four years for defrauding client Stormy Daniels of nearly $300k

Lawyer Michael Avenatti has been sentenced to four years in prison for cheating client Stormy Daniels of hundreds of thousands of dollars in book proceeds.

A federal jury in Manhattan convicted Avenatti in February of wire fraud and aggravated identity after a two-week trial, agreeing that he embezzled nearly $300,000 (£222,000) in book proceeds intended for Ms Daniels.
