BREAKING: Justice Department to Announce Dozens of Indictments Against Michael Avenatti

The Justice Department and Internal Revenue Service on Thursday will announce the filing of a 36-count grand jury indictment against Michael Avenatti.

Officials from both agencies will discuss the indictment at a morning press conference at the U.S. attorney’s office in downtown Los Angeles. Avenatti appeared in a Santa Ana courtroom April 1 after being charged with filing false tax returns to fraudulently obtain $4 million in loans from a Mississippi bank and keeping $1.6 million that belonged to a client. Avenatti had been arrested a week earlier in New York, where he was charged in a separate case with trying to extort millions of dollars from Nike.
