NEW YORK (Reuters) – Lawyer Michael Avenatti, who became nationally known as an outspoken critic of U.S. President Donald Trump before his arrest earlier this year, will stand trial in April on charges that he stole from his former client Stormy Daniels, a federal judge ruled Tuesday.
U.S. District Judge Deborah Batts set the April 21 trial date at a brief hearing in Manhattan federal court. The trial is expected to last one to two weeks.
The article goes on to state the following:
Avenatti, 48, was arrested in New York in March. New York prosecutors have charged him with stealing nearly $300,000 from Daniels in the course of representing her and helping her secure a book deal, to which he has pleaded not guilty.
According to prosecutors, Avenatti diverted forged Saniel’s signature and diverted nearly $300,000 from Daniels’ $800,000 book advance into his own bank account.
Trial date has been set for the SDNY case in which Michael Avenatti is charged with defrauding former client Stormy Daniels: April 21.
