Attorney Michael Avenatti Stuck In El Chapo’s Manhattan Jail Cell

Michael Avenatti, the flashy attorney who once represented porn-star Stormy Daniels is in the clink. Avenatti took on Donald Trump in a widely published shakedown. He’s sitting in the same cell that once held drug kingpin El Chapo. In the Metropolitan Correction Center in Manhattan.

Stormy Daniels was small potatoes compared to the Nike corporation. He needed big money to maintain his flashy lifestyle. He was accused of trying to extort $25 Million from Nike which landed him in the slammer. Out on bail Avenatti was re-arrested last week on a bail violation and transferred to New York. Sitting in El Chapo’s apparently unheated cell.

Maybe tackling with Donald Trump was his fall from CNN and MSNBC Grace! 😆

From : The temperature in his cell feels like it is in the mid-40s. He is forced to sleep with three blankets. Not surprisingly, he has been having great difficulty functioning,” Avenatti’s lawyer, Scott Srebnick, wrote in a letter to a federal judge late Sunday.

He asked that Avenatti be transferred from the high-security cell at the Metropolitan Correction Center in Manhattan to the general population in order to help him prepare for his upcoming trial on charges that he extorted the sports apparel giant Nike. A spokesman for the MCC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Avenatti was arrested last week in California after prosecutors there said he violated bail conditions in place since last spring. On Friday, he was flown to New York, where he is scheduled to stand trial soon on charges that he tried to extort up to $25 million from Nike. He has pleaded not guilty.

He was put in the most secure section of the federal facility under special administrative measures designed to cut off his communications with the outside world. The special housing unit has held dozens of terrorism defendants over the past quarter century. His cell, reportedly once occupied by Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, has an officer posted outside it around the clock.

Wonder if Avenatti will commit suicide like Jeffery Epstein? After all his law career is over. Not a whole lot to live for. Especially being made famous by CNN and MSNBC. 😥
