The three counts include extortion, wire fraud, and transmission of interstate communications with intent to extort. 

The verdict in U.S. District Court in Manhattan came several years after Avenatti represented porn star Stormy Daniels in her legal disputes with President Trump.

Avenatti was charged last March after he tried to extort Nike for as much as $25 million to investigate alleged corruption in youth basketball. 
Last month, Avenatti was jailed for bond violations. He faces several more trials in other federal criminal cases. 
The outstanding cases against the Californian lawyer are charges of defrauding his past clients out of millions of dollars, along with several tax violations.  
Avenatti’s next trial is scheduled in New York for the April timeframe, will cover the charges that he defrauded Daniels of book proceeds. Then in May, in Los Angeles, he faces another trial that he cheated clients out of millions of dollars. 
This is the same man who was for a while championed as the next great white hope to run against, and de-throne, President Trump…

After the news broke, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted: MAGA: Michael Avenatti Going Away
